As for streaming, Exodus was played over 22 million times by fans. Since his death, X’s streaming numbers have risen by over 1,000%.
Beatz recently spoke about the creation of the new project, with GQ:
The way I’m showing up now is the way that I’ve been showing up for years. It’s not even nothing new to me. I don’t deserve credit for it because other people weren’t doing it because I’m just doing what I’m supposed to do. And so, me going all out and pulling out all of the stops and all of the names to celebrate with him and even these listening sessions and all these interviews… It’s what I’m supposed to do. And I’m happy to do what I’m supposed to do for my brother.
