He said at the time: “I’m working on a gospel album. It’s always been on my heart. I just never got around to it because I always be doing gangsta business or doing this or doing that. I just felt like it’s been on my heart too long. I need to do it now. Me, Faith Evans, we talked about it heavily. She feel like she wanna get down with me. All of the people that I know, from Charlie Wilson to Jeffrey Osborne, whoever I want to get down with. I’m gonna make it all the way right. It’s gonna feel good.”
This will be his sixteenth album and is the follow-up to his Neva Left album and Make America Crip Again EP. He will perform with Evans, Tye Tribbett, The Clark Sisters, and Rance Allen at the NFL’s Super Bowl Gospel Celebration on February 1, before Super Bowl LII. Erica Campbell, Sheila E. and Donnie McClurkin, and Sounds of Blackness will also perform. It airs on BET on February 3.
