“This is my boy Eestbound, got this done for free. I got the hookup, that’s my lil bro” – Sean Leon
Leon ends off the project with a short message, self-reflecting and reminiscing certain points in his life that brought him where he is today. The album itself is a work of poetry, which can be interpreted in many different ways. The Death Of can mean Leon talking about the death of his old life, due to his new found fame and fortune, to how people really don’t appreciate/love you until you’re gone. Their are many different ways to go about this.
