Mineo put himself in an uncomfortable space for the Uncomfortable
album, to challenge his own creativity. "I'm going against the grain of what works," he told The Boombox
. "So like I know how to make turn up records, southern records, all the popular records that are out right now."
Mineo added: "But this is for the first time I think on an album I'm like 'no, I'm going to take my own artistic step in a different direction and say this is what I like and I'm not gonna just try to keep up with what's happening. I'm gonna try to step out of the safe space to kinda curate my own sound.' That's what's scary."
