He didn’t like our records. I mean, he liked the records after they started selling. But Public Enemy didn’t sell right out the box. It probably wasn’t his taste, and that’s OK. But nowadays there’s so much pressure to sell on the first record. You gotta sell 100,000 in the first week, otherwise you’re wack. I don’t think that’s true. I think that music is still a taste issue. Sometimes you got to hear something two or three times in order to like it.
