It’s hard to believe it’s been nearly 14 years since Pete Rock released Petestrumentals. Following Jay Dee’s (p/k/a J Dilla) Welcome To Detroit, Soul Brother Pete laced BBE (Barely Breaking Even) Records’ Beat Generation series (Marley Marl and will.i.am were among those who would follow).

Pete struck the Hip-Hop/R&B charts simply through speaking with his hands, and the effort—an instrumental follow-up to 1998’s Soul Survivor was a testament to veterans coming back to the booming underground Hip-Hop movement.

In 2015, Mello Music Group replaced the void that labels like BBE and others left in the space. Fresh off of some session work on Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp A Butterfly, today, Pete Rock announced that on June 23 Petestrumentals 2 is happening, via Mello. The Mount Vernon, New York DJ/producer/MC/radio personality will include music new and archival in the collection. To make the announcement, P.R. shared “One, Two, A Few More.” This song is from 1995, unheard until now…

The joint references some classics (for sample Heads and Slow Jams Heads), and sounds like it could have been made yesterday, or 1-9-9-5. Hopefully this is only the tip of the iceberg…

Pete Rock Heads know that back in ’95, he was a busy man. Coming off of Main Ingredient with Pete Rock & CL Smooth, the Elektra Records star was hard at work with his off-shoots I.N.I. (on Center Of Attention) and Deda’s The Original Baby Pa. Both shelved (with promo leaks), BBE would release both LPs on a double-disc in ’03.

Pete Rock’s last studio full-length work was 2011’s Monumental, alongside Smif-N-Wessun. In ’04, he notably followed-up Soul Survivor with a sequel of its own.

Can't wait for this to drop.  The track sounds pretty damn good.  I hope he throws a gang of beats from his SP1200 era on this one because I miss the grittiness of those beats.  A lot of his new shit sounds too clean to me.

Yah, once Pete stepped away from the raw sampling of his work in the early 90s I found it less satisfying.

I always go back to the documentary that was taped while recording his first Soul Survivor album when I feel nostalgic for that old grit.

Damn, this made my day! Dope ass beat, too, can't wait.

I wonder if there's gonna be features like on the first one, would be dope if he gets Bumpy back on there. And even those cats from The UN (not Cam'ron), I liked most of their stuff on the first album and never heard anything else from them.

Single Tear of Joy sounds like the next hot summer boy band -- with their smash hit #1 single, "I Wanna Get Meme'd By You".

I can't understand how you people find Pete Rock's MPC beats 'less satisfying'.smh

 

Anyway, don't know if y'all heard this, still fresh, dropped a few weeks ago:
