One week on from the September 30 release of Solange's A Seat At The Table and we're still digesting every morsel, from the music to its message. Master P's voice is heard throughout the album and he has given an interview to Complex offering a little more detail on how he came to be involved in the project, as well as Solange's mindset during the recording.

Speaking about his role on tracks like "The Glory Is in You" and "The Chosen Ones," he explained that the audio came from a conversation he had with Solange in the studio. "There wasn't a lot of people in the studio, it was an intimate setting with the engineer and we just talked about what's going on, looking at issues and looking at what's going on in the world and also our culture and our differences," he said. "I think the magic came because it's from a man and a woman's perspective in views and values."

Asked how Solange described the album to him, he added: "She told me it's gonna be soulful. There's a lot of things going on [in the country], a lot of injustice, women not believing in their beauty and who they are. She told me that she was doing her, she was sticking by what she believes in. She wasn't trying to make a record for everybody, she was trying to make a record for her fans and also make music that the world could relate to and for people to understand that we are kings and queens."
