Skyzoo x Pete Rock – “Eastern Conference All​-​Stars” feat. Westside Gunn x Conway x Benny The Butcher x eLZhi

I mean. It wasn’t like “Retropolitan” wasn’t fair already. Just Skyzoo & Pete Rock is enough of a team to make the fans AND the haters scream (joy and PAIN)!

Now we get this lineup on a single. Wow! “Eastern Conference All​-​Stars” is definitely an appropriate title.

Skyzoo x Pete Rock – “It’s All Good” (Video)

A collaboration between Skyzoo and Pete Rock is gonna result in some dope music. You know that. In fact, you know… such a result should bear a title like “It’s All Good!” So there you have it.

A love letter and a wake-up call to New York.

Skyzoo x Pete Rock – “It’s All Good”

New collabo LP on the way from emcee Skyzoo, “Retropolitan,” with all 12 tracks produced by THE Pete Rock, with features from Styles P, Benny The Butcher, Conway, Westside Gunn, Elzhi, and Raheem DeVaughn. Plus, you get a FREE single AND you pre-order…

“It’s All Good” finds Skyzoo skating over a beat from Pete’s secret “SP-1200 stash,” and this one in particular was produced in 1994 around the same time as Pete’s Illmatic sessions with Nas.

Nas – “Queensbridge Politics” (Prod. By Pete Rock)

Queensbridge just ain’t any other hood…

Nas lets us know that it’s Queensbridge over everybody else! Spitting some history, shouting out his homies (including the dearly departed), this is that good grade of N-A-S that you wanted to blow some C-B-D to. Ha!

This Pete Rock-produced jawn is off “The Lost Tapes 2” album (out now). Did you know Nas had Al Jarreau on there as one of the features?

Roc Marciano – “The Specialist” (Prod. By Pete Rock)

Been a minute since we heard from Roc Marci, right? Well, “The Specialist” was worth the wait. Hearing barz by Marciano should be enough to get you amped. But just in case someone’s ear needs more temptation, we have dude spitting over a beat by Pete Rock (complete with the classic chatter and overdubs on the track from the Golden Era Soul Brother).

Presenting Pete Rock, One Of The Architects of “Illmatic” (Video)

We all prayed that this would do well for him… We didn’t know… until it just hit people.

Pete Rock HAD to be part of “Illmatic” (because Hip-Hop history could NOT have unfolded any other way)! And fascinating to learn that Nas had to PUSH Pete to get vocals out of him for the project. Whose world is this? OURS! A Wonderfule Wide World Of Hip-Hop.

…paying homage to “The Architects of Illmatic” with exclusive interviews featuring photographers, producers, writers and members of Nas’ inner circle, including Pete Rock, the subject of today’s clip and the producer of one of the LP’s “signature” songs, “The World Is Yours.” The legendary producer remembers back to when he first heard the lyrics of the classic record. “Your heart just… you just feel it for him. This guy is ahead of his time.” Welcome to #IllmaticXXV Week.

The Rap Music Generation Gap Debate (Teaser Trailer)

Interesting convo here… Maybe enough room for everyone to get their views appreciated and get mad during the course of it. Great look to have Scarface in there as a student of the game AND an O.G.

Rappers from 90’s go head to head with new rappers to talk about the state of music. The panel discusses whether current artists should be students of “the game” and study the older generation and respect what came before them. They also talk about how to stay financially-secure because not all artists stay “hot” their whole career. Find out their thoughts on the state of Hip-Hop.

Smoke DZA x Pete Rock – “Limitless” feat. Dave East

Smoke DZA and Pete Rock promise to finish the year with a start-of-Christmas-season gift, “Don’t Smoke Rock,” on December 2, 2016. The lead leak from that is this “Limitless” single (featuring Dave East). Here’s what the coming album’s architects have to say about it.

It’s a vibe, it’s a painting, it’s a moment. Something that comes around once in a while. I come from old Harlem, before it was a Chase Bank & Starbucks on every corner. Before gentrification.
Smoke DZA

As diehard New Yorkers, It was important for us to make a record that embraces what New York truly feels like. We wanted to bring the listener into our world.
