Its also said that through 11-track album that Nyovest ponders his beginnings, revels in the present and plots the future. “It’s definitely a personal album,” Nyovest told Apple Music.
I I feel like I’m at a point now in my career where I just genuinely want to make a solid project that I’m proud of. This is my attempt at making a classic hip-hop album that will play 10 years from now, and it will stand the test of time. It’s very simple; I really just did whatever came to mind and whatever felt natural at that point. That’s what it’s about for me.
In juxtaposing his earthly vices against attaining spiritual enlightenment, Solomon is also said to evoke the essence of its namesake through its occupation with wisdom, accomplishment and prosperity.
