SinglesEdit

The album's lead single, called "Erbody But Me" was released on September 9, 2016. The song features guest appearances from Bizzy, and the Strange Music's label-mate Krizz Kaliko, with the production by Tech N9ne's longtime collaborator Seven.

ResponseEdit

Tech N9ne was very upset about the mixed reception of the album: "I tried to go back and try to make it a little bit more grittier like my first record, and the response that I got wasn't the one that I wanted. So I was hurt. I wanted people to respond to a weed song I did with Boyz II Men called "Buddha." Now who could get Boyz II Men on a song called "Buddha?" I finally got to work with Jonathan Davis of Korn. We did "Starting to Turn." It was so humongous. Finally got to work with Gary Clark Jr. and do a song. Very humongous. Nobody — I finally got to work with Marsha Ambrosius of Floetry. I've loved her music for years, since Floetry first dropped. When they wrote the song for Michael Jackson, "Butterfly," I was tuned in. No response. Not the — I mean, my fans bought it. But it was like, "Eh." Broke my heart."[3]
