Prior to the release of the album, Cudi spoke on what the album did for him personally.

“Every time I write I learn something new about myself,” Cudi told Lowe in the Beats 1 interview. “My first album I didn’t realize my father’s death had an impact the way it did until I wrote about it. I guess being alone is an issue for me. I guess being depressed is an issue. I didn’t know what it was. I’m just making music. Things that I didn’t’ pinpoint before therapy.”
