As artists we are nothing without the fans. I took time off from recording my next album to make a very special project dedicated to my biggest fan and supporter since day one. He said he needed something that represented him and where he comes from so here it is. Thank you for years of loyalty, I do this for people like you. See you all Thursday @ 9pm Poppy Street Time!
The last time the rapper released an album was in 2017 with his Big Fish Theory. Big Fish Theory was met with critical acclaims. But earlier this year, he released his song “Get The Fuck Off My Dick,” after staging a mock GoFundMe page. The campaign was to raise $2M as a retirement fund. Staple’s ended up giving the fans a full refund and dropped the song.
