Words of the artist :
This is batch of music pieces is what happened during this hot, dark and rainy summer, when the phone didn't ring anymore and nobody would take time to return my calls.
It is dedicated to all my fellow musicians and beatsmiths who endured long invisibleness before finally enjoying some success.
A thought for the late great Q, you were there, you keep on being here,
One for my friends and brothers, we been through a lot.
One for Ms. S.Q, thanks for the poetry.
One for the Kojo-Chin's, you became my family.

This is one superb, fantastic album that stands so massively among the instrumental beats out there and has its own true beauty and power! All tracks are good, all are excellent! I bought the vinyl and I am looking for "High Rollers II", PLEASE!!! Uncle Sampl3
