If this is all a big hustle i never feel cheated by having a copy of this album if anything i think the quality of the performances along side the dedication to the reproduction of the Afro sound makes this album an underground classic

"This album is respectfully dedicated to the memory of Fela Ransome Kuti, the Godfather of Afro-Beat."

"Musicawa Silt" is a cover of "Muziqawi Silt" by the Wallias Band which is incorrectly referred to as "Wallais band" on the cover.

Musician's Credits on the cover are all fake names for members of Antibalas as well as The Soul Providers and The Mighty Imperials respectively, which later became The Dap-Kings.

The track "Eltsuhg Ibal Lasiti" spells "It Is All A Big Hustle" backwards. This is a reference to the fact that the album is not "Produced in Nigeria" as the cover states, but produced in New York by New York based musicians.
