"The illusion of friendship that comes with being in the 'industry' of indy [sic] music has gotten beyond pretend. What I needed for this project is something I don't believe I could get from any label. At one point during the promotion of Patterns I felt abandoned by my team. Ninja [Tune] is great. Just feel that there were some bad components honestly. Here with this new record to restore a since [sic] of balance. The Dedekind Cut."
"Many thing [sic] have led me to doing this self release and starting this new duo "Dedekind Cut." But many the facts I stated in my last letter...feeling like as a black [artist], I have statements to make that [are] the furthest things from...R&B and hip-hop, witch [sic] I think has become part of why there is a 'shock value' to my music. Because [it's outside of the typical 'race lines'] when it comes to creating music." - Lee Bannon
