“I’ma need y’all to rain dance,” Mach said in a press release. “This rap s–t is too dry right now.” “Once a rebel, always a rebel,” Westside Gunn added. “Mach and I cooked up a hip-hop classic with Pray for Haiti.
Twenty percent of the album’s proceeds will go to the Pray for Haiti Trust Fund, which will work to improve schools in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. The project is Mach’s first full-length release since 2020’s Mach’s Hard Lemonade.
