Doe B had begun to break out beyond “The Gump” off the success of “Let Me Find Out,” a song which first appeared on his 2012 sophomore mixtape Definition of a Trapper 2. With a sparse, slow-rolling bass line and an insanely catchy hook, the song was an exercise in a less-is-more philosophy.
"It’s very rare that you could find somebody at the age of 20 or 21, and sit them down in front of somebody they aspire to be like, and they are as composed and poised and postured and looking eye to eye with this person. It’s very rare that you find somebody at the age of 20 or 21 and you could walk them into the room with a Nelly, or you could walk them into a room with a Timbaland or Jay Z, and they not lose their cool, they’re composed, postured, with the morals, standards, and the principles that were instilled in him from his family, his mom, his dad, grandmama, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles … I saw that in him day one, off top, and that is what drew me to him even more so beyond the music."-T.I.

He didn’t drink. He didn’t smoke. There wasn’t no real reason for that either. It just wasn’t for him. He was a happy person, man. A happy spirit”-DJ Frank White
