T: Tell me about “Wet”, what inspired the record?

Cola: I woke up one night and wrote “Wet” and another song. I was irritated about some shit going on that day between these fake bitches and baby daddy problems, I wrote wet and another song called call “The Ref” which will be dropping soon.

T: How is it different than previous works?

Cola: I don’t like my previous work. As you make songs you get better and I don’t sound the same as two years ago. I’m still working on my craft tho.
