In a 2008 interview Factz recalled, “I had heard a few records from some New York artists, whose names I won’t mention, and I wasn’t very pleased with what they were doing. […] I decided that I was going to get in the shoes of Sean Bell and talk about the night of him dying, him at his funeral, him seeing the press conferences and him just talking to the youth and letting them know that we have to come together and do better than what’s going on right now.”[5] Factz’s song-per-week release strategy was also used for The Leak, Vol.2: The Inspiration,[6] which contains guest appearances by Drake, Travie McCoy, and Tanya Morgan.[7] The music video for “Rockin’ N Rollin'”, featuring The Cool Kids and produced by Precize, was added to rotation at MTV.[6] Factz was named to XXL magazine’s “Freshmen Class of ’09” issue in 2008.[8]
