Banks & Steelz began working on music together in 2013 where the idea to collaborate with the Interpol front-man sparked after RZA's manager asked him who he wanted to do an album with. "When I met Paul, I recognized the New York energy he has as a music artist," RZA told Rolling Stone. "We got to know each other playing chess and vibing out in the studio. Our talents connected in a unique way and we started writing songs. The outcome was something distinctively different from my previous work, yet with another layer of cool."
