In an interview with Hot 93.7 late last year, Ink explained the meaning of his new album title. " 'My Own Lane' is my struggle, because I came from a producer background and I listen to all kinds of different music and don't really limit myself to what I do," he explained.

"It's hard for people to categorize me in a specific lane, and be like 'He's this kind of artist.' There's so many different areas I'm pulling from, I have to just create my own lane, in a sense," he continued.

He also revealed what fans could expect from the new record, saying, "If you've heard any of my mixtapes, I try to reach everything- I want to get some club records in there, I want to be in the club, in the car, in the house, on a beach cruise, I'm trying to get all the vibes in there."

Ink has collaborated with several big names in music industry in the past, but he still has some names he wants to work with in the future. "I would love to get in the studio with [] and just see what the vibe is, because I know that's somebody who doesn't really have limits with music," he said.
