Times are weird for people, and they’re trying to figure out what to do. Seeing what’s going on in the world is keeping me motivated. Figuring out ways to make it better, that’s really keeping me motivated. And whether it’s with music, or whether it’s trying to go change stuff in the inner city -I’m just trying to turn it up on all levels. – Scott
It’s crazy. It’s a lot of things I wanted in my earlier career – it was just like it had to come in time. No matter how long it takes, you just stay on it. It might take one album or two albums. It might be your third, it might be your fourth. I feel like since Owl Pharaoh, I’ve been just like, ‘Yo, what is the sound?’ Astroworld was kinda like being able to make a lot of things come to life. – Scott
