In a statement to Complex about his approach to the new cut and accompanying video, the recent Alamo/Interscope signee said he was stoked to get out of his "comfort zone' for the Ethernet single. "I've separated myself in a way because I stay to myself and don't really chase other artists for looks or trends, so to get out of my comfort zone and to work with both Jay Critch and FatBoy on this video and to bring 'Knots' to life shows progression in my style," he said. "I'm going to show the fans even more of that on Ethernet."
Back in March, the Palm Beach rapper caught up with our own Jinx at SXSW in Austin, Texas to talk about the festival's evolution. "I'mma be real with you," he said. "I feel like, the events as a whole? Way different, you know what I mean? I feel like they had way better culture and more emphasis on the actual event of SXSW in 2012, 2011. But one thing that I will say is that the talent this year is crazy. It's a lot of, like, emerging artists that actually have a chance. I haven't really heard a one-hit wonder yet perform at any of these events."
Ethernet, which follows last year's When Hell Falls and Boy Who Cried Wolf, is out May 25.
