No, no, no, no, no! Wooo weee. Bleep! Ey, ey ey ey ey!

So, you already know, it’s simply how I felt being in that business. I felt like, you already know, we weren’t in a position to be 100% with you guys, and, you already know we undergo a variety of feelings too, up right here on stage and it’s… It will get onerous, you already know, and that’s why I sort of needed to place this album out, for my followers, to hook up with you guys on a deeper degree.

At every live performance, Mark emphasizes that the opposite aspect is personally for him and his followers, nobody else, encouraging them to “f*ck all those haters.”
