Robert DiGiacomo of has an interview with Diddy, talking about the tour and the group. He was asked why, at this part of his career, did he want to be a part of a group, versus releasing a solo album?

"I heard different voices in my mind," he said. "I didn't want to listen to a whole album of just me, unless I was doing 'No Way Out 2.' This was something that lent itself to being a two-way street, emotionally and lyrically. I've always been a big fan of groups and the way they bounced off each other when they were truly a group.

"I started preproduction on the album, and [Dawn Richard and Kalenna] started writing," he continued. "When they were laying down the vocals, the chemistry was just incredible. I asked them if they would rock me on the album."
