It’s a makeover album, so we’re just celebrating people who’ve been made in ways that we admire,” WowGr8 said.

Olu talked about bringing the elements of Atlanta culture to the album, “It’s really great that the city is involved in the album and championing the album and really supporting the momentum of everything we have created so far. In many ways, we’re still attacking our production. It’s the soundscape of the stories we tell and we want to make sure it’s current but also experimental and contains the musical elements who are who we are.
