Skales recently spoke about his relationship with his formal label in an interview with NET, saying that no matter what they could never be enemies and that he missed making music with them.

He said,

Well, I won’t lie that I don’t miss… I really do miss the fun part of it, the part where when we make music it is fun, when we do everything its fun. I really miss the fun part.

But the truth about it is, it doesn’t mean that me being away from EME doesn’t mean like I’m enemies with them, like we’re still cool, still like, we are still EME no matter what, cause that’s where we started from.
