There's also Lil Wayne, who appears on the title cut, an already-popular single that hit last year. The disc's second single, "So Good," emerged in February, with the video -- filmed in location in Argentina -- following in March.
In a recent interview with Popcrush, the MC described the album's "different sound."
"I feel like the sound is a continuum from the last album, just more mature, more refined, more conversational at moments," he said. "You know, I really bring people closer to who I am, and what makes me think, and ... my story, growing up as a kid and just letting people know who I am really. I don't think people really know enough of who I am."
