This tape is just me really venting and expressing myself about a recent situation I been in or past situations.
Westleaf Staff: What inspired this Tape?
K LANE: Real life situations are what really inspired It, a lot of trials and tribulations that happened during the time that I was creating the album. I've been working on thug cry for the last 2 and a half years. Half of the songs were made in Japan and half were made in the US.
Westleaf Staff: What’s your favorite song on the Thug Cry and why?
KLANE: My favorite song on the Tape is “How I Feel”. That song is personal. I was going through a lot when I wrote that song and after I got done recording it, it just stuck wit me.
