Woke You Up features a trio of guest appearances and at least one track Sonny is already predicting will bag a million in sales. "I'm just ready to drop new music," he told Billboard Wednesday. "This EP is the first one from a series of them I plan on dropping this year. As of now, this first EP has features from Lil Xan, Black Boe, and Steve Cannon and the rest is me. I do have a song in the stash that I know is going platinum when I drop it!"
Speaking with Complex last February at the Bud Light Crew HQ in New Orleans during NBA All-Star weekend, Sonny discussed his intention of becoming a West-like multi-hyphenate. "I really like producing, don't get me wrong," he said. "I love it. I'm still producing and stuff, but that's not my focus." Asked to clarify what his current focus was, Sonny confirmed it was rapping. "I'm on my Kanye West stuff right now," he said.
In November, Sonny dropped the official video for "My Guy" featuring Black Boe. The track appears on Sonny and Boe's Black Goat project.
Wednesday, Sonny weighed in on allegations that Atlantic Records had labeled albums as "mixtapes" to avoid fair compensation for producers. "If you gonna call out Atlantic then you might as well call out all the labels because they all doing the same thing," Sonny tweeted, citing Cash Money as an example. "You can't just single out one party when all other parties doing the same."
