“I don't know how long ima be gone I just want to appreciate my family, fans & friends for rocking w/ me continue to do that while I'm away,” he wrote on Instagram at the time, announcing he was turning himself in. “I'm not gone promise y'all nothing because I kno the process of dropping a album is not over night but I'm most definitely pushing for the beginning of da year ‘Mr.Crawford The Album So Soon.”
According to an Instagram story he shared in December last year, the Steel Human rapper revealed that he was 300 songs into the album and was trying to figure out how many records he should have on the project.
