According to Orchestrate96, “Young & Naive” is a personal project which is filled with a lot of lyrics and messaging that speaks on being goal-oriented.

Speaking on his mind-state when recording the project, the gifted rapper claimed “Young & Naive” is an attempt to project himself to his potential fans and listeners in the best light. He said: “I made this album to show a side of me that is not obvious to my fans or listeners. It is my debut album, so I wanted my listeners to know me more. An attempt to build a bond or relatability.”
