"A song that was created by Earlly Mac. He had this song called 'No Rest for The Wicked' as a response to what was happening to our people, getting killed all the time by police. It’s a song that I started listening to in the morning during my meditation. If I was angry, I would listen to that song. I liked it, so I ended up putting one of the first recordings I did on the album. That’s raw emotion and feelings of frustration and things I was letting out."
