“I’m sorry moms. I know personally that she don’t really like that picture of herself ’cause she’s not looking in the camera.
(However) it’s perfect. I always go with a baby picture and I wanted to go with one with my mom on it this time,” he explained. “This album means a lot to me. People been waiting on this album and I’m just at the point in my life and stuff to have my mom on there. It’s more than an accomplishment, it’s an achievement.”
