"Back in 1997, I was basically a fan of everybody on the records, except some of the newer acts," he explained. "It was a chance to give some of them a platform. Some of the newer acts - this was this first project that they ever had out; like Call O' The Wild and Infamous Mobb. That was their first record.
"I was producing Beastie Boys, Ice Cube, Cypress and KRS-One," he continued. "So Columbia Records was excited to give me a deal for a solo album."
