Speaking about the up and coming mix tape, Sankofa said: "I call it a 'grits' tape 'cause it'll stick to your ribs. No microwave rap. It’s a metaphor just like the title says, just changing your mindset not just for a ‘dollar’ but for success as a whole. I rap but I live Hip Hop culture. I live Southern culture. I’m a Southern artist and won't a thing change that."
He also spoke about the fact that his music tells a story, adding: "It’s not enough to be lyrical and have people lost ‘cause you're using big words, and it’s not enough to say something that sounds cool with no substance to it. I can take a 10 minute drive and stand on the same corner MLK, Malcolm X, and Rosa Parks stood. I know better than to leave that type of stuff out my rhymes. You have to be able to balance out giving people something to think about and learn from and have a good time. That's what I want my daughter to come up on. Edutainment!"
