One For You begins at the end of Illustrate’s two-year engagement with his best friend, opening with the emotional breakdown of 'Round and Round', featuring Jaison Spain. Forced to venture out to meet the next best woman in tracks like “High Hopes,” the cynical Illustrate seems to only find flakes, gold-diggers, and confused girls. Tired of being consumed with the pleasures of the flesh, Illustrate pulls back and lets the women do all the work in “Pussy Sweat” and “Voyager.” But just when you think he's turned to the dark side of misogyny, Illustrate comes full-circle and expresses his true feelings on connecting with females in a face-paced, impersonal world with 'So Far Away’, featuring Jaison Spain.
