The album debuted at position #6 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Albums chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists.

The chart positions continue to drive a powerful message to the Country music traditionalists that believe rap and country shouldn’t mix and proves that Jelly Roll and Struggle cannot to be confined by the traditional trappings of country music.

Jelly Roll and Struggle dubbed themselves "Waylon & Willie" as an homage to the classic outlaw country music legends Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson. Waylon & Willie's music paints a dark picture and details the trappings of life on the streets as they share their stories of drug addiction, survival, betrayal and the heartbreak of tragedy.
