Fuse TV's Crate Diggers series is back, this time with legendary Roc-A-Fella/Def Jam recording engineer and producer Young Guru. Sitting in his home studio, Guru talks about his evolution as a crate digger, starting with going through his parent's records as a kid to adventures in dark alleys in Amsterdam looking for rare vinyl.

His approach to his collection isn't the over-obsessed musical nerd who pours over his crates, he appreciates the music for what it is. He's not about bragging, because as he states, "nobody has everything and nobody knows everything." For Guru, it's not all about finding that ultra-exclusive funk joint from 1972 that only 10 other people might have, "You forget that Joshua Tree (U2's epic early LP) has drums."

Best line? "I have four kids, I don't have time to count how many records I have."
