Muggs having the following to say in a statement about how the album came about, “I had just finished the ‘KAOS’ album, and wanted to work with someone new, and relatively unknown. I was talking to Mayhem Lauren one day and asked him if he knew any dope MCs. And he said he knows this kid from Rochester, New York named Eto and he’s dope. So I sent him a track for the ‘Dia Del Asesinato’ album and he destroyed it,’ remembers DJ Muggs. “So after that we started a new song here and there. I asked Eto if he had an idea for an album title and he said ‘Hell’s Roof’, which is a name they call his home turf. When he said that I immediately knew that’s it.”
Eto adding, “Hell’s Roof is a name we call Rochester, because it’s our stomping ground and the dark sound that Muggs provides is the perfect backdrop.”
