NOV-003: ANKHLEJOHN - MAHAMUDRA
This record is dedicated to my grandfather, B. Hinton. Though he didn’t care for hip-hop, he wanted to know what it was like to create a record. He believed in me and what I was doing, and knew we could make something great. He was crafty without the means. I got him on board to help me create this record. He was so excited for when it was finally done. Sadly, he passed away on August 27, the day after the record was pressed. He never got to see it finished. This one is for him. I think it came out perfect. I know he would too. I hope you’re proud. Until we meet again.

THE FIRST SET OF TEST PRESSES WERE REJECTED DUE TO A HALF-SECOND BLIP AT THE BEGINNING OF TRACKS TWO, THREE, AND FOUR. IN THE RUNOUT OF THE REJECTED TEST PRESSES IT SAYS, "MAY THE PITH INSTRUCTION IN MAHAMUDRA REMAIN IN THE HEARTS OF THE FORTUNATE BEINGS."
ONCE THE TEST PRESSES WERE RE-CUT, THE BLIPS WERE FIXED AND THE RUNOUT ETCHING WAS CHANGED TO, "MIND WITH NO OBJECTIVE IS MAHAMUDRA."
