“Oh, bro, I’m super comfortable with the potential of being done with this sh*t. But I’m never going to say, ‘Oh, this is my last album.’ … Because I never know how I’m going to feel two years, three years, four years down the line, 10 years down the line, but please believe, I’m doing all this work for a reason. … I’m doing all this work to be at peace with, ‘If I never did another album, I’m cool.’”
