“Making this album, brought back memories from my past, with tracks and demos dating back to 1994-1995, some included in this album. These songs and demos, when discovered, were returned back to us by Mrs. Yancey, categorized and filed away, it blew my mind when I heard them, hearing Dilla and Baatin’s voice I wondered how New Slum would sound with the Original Slum, and not lose the integrity of the group. I think that was achieved!” – T3
