    Man, I visualized Billy Brooks looking like a badass motherfucker listening to 40 days on Dusty Fingers, but that profile picture takes the cake. RESPECT. The trumpet solo on that track is bitchin.

    Forty Days is a great song... you may recognize it from A Tribe Called Quest's Luck of Lucien from their first album, People's Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm.
