So how did the Dusty Fingers series come about?

At the time I was making beats from a lot of the stuff that wound up on the Dusty Fingers albums but nobody wanted my beats because they were like this is some other shit and they didn’t understand it. So I said I know what I’m going to do, I’m going to press these songs up and put them out and watch everybody start sampling from them and that’s exactly what happened. There isn’t a producer that doesn’t own a Dusty Fingers LP in their crates so I guess everything worked out in the long run, the music I wanted to introduce in my beats still got heard.
