BL: The music speaks for itself. We literally grew up in the same situation as other people. If you a young average black male, then 9 times out of 10, you’ve been in our situation.

B: The song we did last night, the performance, it was dedicated to her.
BL: We performed a song for my sister. That was beautiful.
What projects do you have out right now?

What’s next for y’all?
BL: The world. This is our beginning. We virgins to stuff like this. This is our second day at this as you can tell, yesterday was our first. We will be doing a lot more of this and more stuff like this. Hopefully, if the Lord says so.
