“Pray for Tekashi, they want him to rot,” Cole raps on the song, “I picture him inside a cell on a cot, ’Flectin’ on how he made it to the top/Wondering if it was worth it or not.”
Childish Gambino, Post Malone and ScHoolboy Q also feature on the record. The 14-track release is the Atlanta hip-hop artist’s second full-length album, and the followup to 2017’s Issa Album, which peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 (his Without Warning set with Offset & Metro Boomin in the same year reached No. 4 on the chart).
The East Atlanta rapper previewed the project early this week with an interactive art pop up installation in his hometown, titled Motel 21.
