HHO: How did the record come about?
JC The Don: Both Records came from the pain and betrayal I experienced while hustling in the streets. I showed a lot of love to people who didn’t deserve it and they turned their backs on me and betrayed me by setting me up and stole from me as well. But instead of going back at their heads I turned to music which I just started doing around February 2018.
HHO: What would be your dream collaboration with any rapper or producer?
JC The Don: A dream Collaboration would be with Drake of course but I seen Derez Deshon at a show in Huntsville AL and this was while I was going thru the hurt from the streets and his music was speaking too me so that Collab as well would mean a lot to me because he played a role in inspiring me to rap.
