Sessions told D Magazine last year that Dallas was incubating talent ready to blow up any day. Always one to drop names of collaborators like Blue, the Misfit and Picnictyme when asked to address his conscious and motivational work, Sessions just watched his subscription to a do-it-together ethos — and years of hard work and loyalty — pay off.
“A lot of artists want to escape Dallas, thinking that if they go to these other markets that they’re somehow going to propel their career to new heights,” he said in that interview with Natalie Gempel. “What I wanted to do was the opposite. I wanted to pay my homage and respect to all the legends from the neo-soul scene to the hip-hop scene that paved the way for me to even have a platform to do what I do.”
