Speaking on the mixtape, what it means to him, and the recurring presence of fifty Cent, Digga writes: “Yo! It’s 7:00am and I’m in bed, chilling, trying to think what to write to you guys (I’m currently high af). But lemme get straight into it. I was born 29.06.00 in St. Mary’s Hospital—a real noughties baby. I lived in Kilburn but went to school in Grove. St Thomas’ Primary School, to be exact. Whilst most people my age were watching Spongebob, I was watching Shottas and yardie raves. This badness wasn’t something I chose; it was just second-nature. I grew up listening to 50 Cent; one of the reasons as to why I’ve sampled three of his songs. Big up 50 for the clearance though! The reason I’m giving you my life story is because, in this day and age, a lot of opinions and conclusions have been drawn about me without understanding who I am, why I am, and how I am. So when listening to this tape, I want you to take me in and keep an open mind.”
