    “A lot of times when an artist wants to be coached or pushed to maybe a greater level, that’s where I’ve come in, He, as every artist, he wants his music to be heard by the world. He doesn’t care about crossing over. You know, he’s not trying to get hot. He’s not, like, ‘I want to be a big pop star’ — he’s already a star. He wants his music to be heard, his message, his people.”

Though he didn’t, it seems like he would fulfilling their wish as it is expected to be part of the album from a tracklist that recently surfaced.

    Most of the album was recorded during the pandemic and Diddy helped put finishing touches to them.

    The album contains songs like the Foreboding “Alarm Clock”, the violence-ridden “Wetin dey Sup”, the Chris Martin assisted “Monsters you made” which tells of the repercussion of racism and slavery, the Triumphant “Level Up” where Burna sings of his achievements as a person.
