The third single for the album was released on July 2, titled “Hold Me Back”, which was produced by G5. Ross spoke on the concept of Hold Me Back with MTV News, saying “That’s the struggle, the angle I wanted to take on that record once again from somebody who may not have much, but that don’t determine where you end up in the game. From struggle to triumph, as long as you stay loyal with your clique and your family, you can overcome whatever. That’s how I feel.” On July 16, Rick along with Maybach Music Group, began the GFID Promo Tour, appearing on radio shows and doing interviews to promote the album.
