"I wanted to focus more on storytelling and having a collection of songs with subject matters that tie into one another," says Black Milk, revealing that No Poison No Paradise is also structured conceptually. The album functions as a collection of dreams inside the head of Sonny Jr., a character Black Milk has created. In "Perfected On Puritan Ave.," for example, Sonny flashes back to a time when he and his childhood friend are playing basketball and aspiring to be NBA players or rap artists. The song later flashes forward to see Sonny living some of his childhood dreams.
