In an Instagram post from February, he wrote that Hit-Boy would be producing the album. “Sometimes the experience of the journey is a better feeling than reaching the destination. You won’t ever kno unless u make it there…but remember ‘EVERYBODY CAN’T GO,’” Benny wrote at the time. “The Album produced by @hitboy…Loading[.]“ The two previously connected on Benny’s 2020 album, Burden of Proof. The album featured Lil Wayne, Dom Kennedy, Rick Ross, Conway the Machine, and more.
