According to Common, while writing his memoir, Let Love Have the Last Word, which was released on May 7th, the rapper starting getting all of these musical ideas. According to XXL, who was at the event, Common said:

It’s inspired by the book that I just released. I started this album because my team was like, “With the release of the book, maybe you should do some music” and it kinda really sparked me in a way. This book was something really personal and I was going to places that I never went to in my life. So I was thinking as an artist to be able to do the same thing.

The album will have the same title as the book.
