"My intention was to drop Dear America on July 4th, that was the day I was always aiming for. But, because so many labels reached out to me recently and they are so excited about everything that's on the project, this might just be an album.

"The title Dear America is two words sum my life up in a nutshell. I've been fighting for a goal, it's almost inevitable that I have to go to America to do that. That's where hip-hop is. As a major artist you have to be able to travel there. Dear America is an album written as a letter to let them know I'm coming across that border and I got the music to compete with everybody across that border. My dream is to get across that border.
"Production wise, I got Pro-Logic and Bass Line. That would be the closest thing to 'my 40.' They've been with me for years and are my main producers. I definitely got a lot of great production from T-Minus. Him and Boi-1da. Just from Toronto, I've known them for years, before they were T-Minus and Boi-1da.
"Feature wise, I have that song with A$AP Rocky, 'We Dem Niggas.' I got a song with French Montana, a song with Waka that we shot a video for already. I got a record with Drake and somebody else that I don't want to give away too early, but that's going to be the record of the year hopefully."
