This is one of the simplest, yet most bizarre stories behind a project being released that I've ever heard. Essentially, 88-Keys needed space on his hard drive but didn't have a disc to backup old shit on. So, in a charitable move, he decided to just throw it all up on the internet, delete it off his computer, and be done with it.
Here it is in his own words:
“I needed a disk today + I didn’t want to drag my lil’ ‘Looki’ outside this early = OPERATION: DELETE BEATS was now in full effect… So here they go for your amusement. By no means am I saying these are the freshest batch of beats you’ve ever heard or anything but these were all unfinished ‘ideas’ I laid down 7+ years ago & never went back to....I guess this means we can expect some new shit from 88 in the near future. It's also nice to get a unique insight into the evolution of his skills. 7 years is a long ass time.
Old-ass beats I've recently come across which are now being ERASED!!! Farewell old beats... It was nice creating you. RIP”
