He is “currently deciding the release dates” for two upcoming mixtapes, which he is very excited about. With the official titles All Gas No Breaks and The Come Back, Capone wants audiences to know that he will be dropping videos and singles on a regular basis until their release. When asked what message he wants to convey through his music, he says:
“I want people to turn up. But if I want to make a slow real song it’s going to, for sure, have more
