“First & foremost – thank YOU for supporting this album, and for your patience. Special thanks & love to my family, friends – you know who you are. Your love & support means everything – I wouldn’t be here without each one of you. Much love & P.E.A.C.E. to my Bruvz – RaSoul & Testament, for blessing our track & always having my back! Huge thanks & love to Relic/Rel McCoy for the hilarious impressions & Skydiving with us! Mad love & respect to Timbuktu for steering the ship & keeping us laughing at all times. Tremendous love & thanks to Evul & the entire Droppin’ Science family – a dream come true! Massive love to my UK fam – DJ Rumage & Ruztik Records, for connecting us with Mr. Fantastic & the AE Productions crew – so thankful to be working together! And last, but never least – to my partner in rhyme, Ghettosocks – nothing but eternal gratitude, love & respect for you, your unmatched artistry, & incredibly selfless dedication from day one. Thank you for saying yes.

Valkyrie is a voice for the Warrior. It is dedicated to those who have faced adversity, and been tested in life. For those courageous souls who push through to the end, prevailing against all odds. It is especially for those who feel like giving up. You will make it. You are powerful. Keep going. Surround yourself with the truth-sayers. Educate your minds, hearts and souls. Show love. Give love. Be love. Connect with all of our generations. Be strong. Be brave. Be real. And above all, remember – always stay true to yourself.

Much Love & Respect,

*NILLA xo”
