In a recent interview RecoHavoc further expanded on the meaning behind his debut mixtape's title. "After I lost my mom and dad I stopped fing with drugs. I was like, 'It's lit now. I'm started.' The word 'Started' means a lot to me. You can't move anything if it's not started. You can't play a game if you don't press start. You can't go forward, if you don't start. It's started now."
"RecoHavoc's sound is exciting and fresh. I love to be a part of new movements, especially someone like Reco coming from my hometown!" adds DJ Drama.
