"It was a year in the making. We thought we had found the lane, then I started doing other shit. Now that it's done and I've listened to it a bunch of times, I'll say that it's got a pop appeal... the songs will appeal to a broader range of people as opposed to the hip-hop crowd or conventional Gym Class Heroes crowd." - McCoy, on the composition of the album
