"Madman" is a very personal track of mine. I had been listening to alot of Cage around that time, so I was inspired to get a bit dark on this one. PNS has always, in my opinion, had some very dark, murky production that could let me open up a bit. It's about me dealing with some of the crazier thoughts that I'd have in my head when I'd walk the city streets and ride the trains at about 4 am. I delve into how being raised by a very religious father who didn't spare the rod created a dichotomy in my head. The delivery is very slurry and twisted, but I had to make sure the wordplay and visuals were there so it didn't come off too messy...and of course I had to interpolate the Nas line from Mobb Deep's "Eye for an Eye". This is definitely a crazed little piece...DIG in!
