Speaking with Complex, Ralo opened up about his decision to release an album while incarcerated. “I decided to drop this project now because I wanted to have a project in the streets before I got out of jail,” he explains. “This project speaks a lot about my current situation. I made these songs leading up to my arrest and I want people to hear my side of the story. It’s a very authentic project, and it speaks for a lot of people that are currently in and have been in my situation.”
Though Ralo’s future may be uncertain, it’s not entirely bleak. “A couple weeks ago I was preparing to spend the next few years of my life in prison, but as of now my lawyer believes that I will only be doing a couple more months,” he says, citing The Marijuana Justice Act. “This law decriminalizes marijuana on a federal level and we need people to start calling their Senators and State representatives to get this bill passed,” implores Ralo. “This bill can help a lot of people get out of jail and back to their loved ones.”
