“There was a switch that flipped, and it felt like I was making Stoney,” he says, referencing his 2016 debut album.
“I lost that, and the hardest part is getting it back. It ebbs and flows. It’s figuring out: ‘Just because I’m not inspired to do it at the moment doesn’t mean I’m giving up.’ ” the star told the publication.

In Posty's interview with Billboard, the rapper may be planning to tour in 2023.
