"The 'Cut The Record' series was made solely for this release and was part of my most recent exhibition Remix. This was a very personal series for me, as I selected 10 of my favorite musicians to portray and Remix. All of the 10 musicians I selected to make for this series are personal favorites of mine. Music I actually listen to on a day to day basis. For my exhibition I kinda tweaked the meaning of Remix to fit the swapping and sampling of different, but similar pieces of wood cuts I had made on the pieces. With the 10 musicians I selected for the 'Cut The Record' series each has either had their music remixed, and or remix music themselves.
To kick things off Jay-Z was a no-brainer. He combines both the wordplay and flow of a dynamic lyricist, and his beats are (remixed) from earlier classics." - Above
