10. How Did You Come Up With Your Album Title?
I came up with $ Tells Me What It I$ by watching how people act when they’re broke, as opposed to when they have money- and on the flip side, how people respond to me if I’m broke, or have money. My idea for Laid Bac Attack II – Revolutionary Choice came to be by looking at myself and the world…just observing how people respond to things. I myself have personally started to look at other people as if I’m looking at myself. Meaning: How would I want someone to respond to me if I was acting unfavorably? And the answer would be…enlighten me, give me some insight on how God would want it. We all have a choice, both sides – so let’s be positive. It’s time for a change.
