As a writer, I absorb stories, allow them to churn within my own head and heart – often for years – until I find a way of telling them that fits both my time and temperament.

‘Habits & Contradictions’ is the prequel to ‘Setbacks.’ I had all these titles already in my head before I even dropped ’em. Like ‘Setbacks,’ I knew that was gone be the first one; I knew ‘Habits & Contradictions.’ I knew ‘Oxymoron.’ I got two more albums that I already have the title to it, and I know how I’ma play the theme off of it.
