    "No more living in fear..." Thundercat said, "Steve Lacy titled this song. 'Qualls' was just a different way of saying 'walls.' And black walls in the sense of what it means to be a young black male in America right now. A long time ago, black people weren't even allowed to read. If you were caught reading, you’d get killed in front of your family. So growing up being black – we're talking about a couple hundred years later – you learn to hide your wealth and knowledge. You put up these barriers, you protect yourself....You gotta know who you are. It's about this idea that it's okay to be okay."
