In a previous interview with HYPEBEAST, Redd revealed his confidence in the sound of Pegasus. “I didn’t feel like I was at the level I wanted to be at yet,” he admitted, “but now I feel like I’ve mastered my sound and it’s just going to keep on elevating.”
He continued, “I expect people to ultimately perceive the music as they want. It’s all up to you — your imagination, your thought process, your ability to decipher bars and metaphors and wordplay — just sit back and understand the music as a whole. It’s all up to the listener, so I just look at it as you like it or you don’t.”
