In Sway’s latest trip to Washington DC, he spoke to Ricky Rozay about all things God Forgives, I Don’t. How did he come up with the title? What inspired the album cover? Plus, he speaks on Hold Me Back, Amsterdam and Diced Pineapples. Watch above.
The Title: God Forgives, I Don’t
“I knew approaching this album, I wanted to approach titling it a lot different from previous albums. I wanted it to be strong and impactful. The first half is God Forgives: It’s a lot of us need forgiveness. I Don’t represented the street aspect of life. I feel we have both sides that we deal with in life. I gave ‘em one of those feelings that it was a motion picture, a masterpiece, five-star.”
The Album Cover
“We actually used a church to shoot some photos in. I remember sitting in the church just waiting for the photographer, and I remember sitting in there praying, just being thankful. I knew I wanted to have 10 Jesus pieces on. Of course, one Jesus piece was always fly, but I just wanted 10. I just wanted to go to that next level.”
