The Chocolate Boy Wonder spoke to VIBE and revealed that his collaborative album with DJ Premier is actually coming. I think I just shit myself…

“This is really happening,” Pete exclusively tells VIBE. “I got a good side of people with me [laughs]. I’m going to keep the artists I have under wraps.”

According to Pete, the project, which is slated for this year, was sparked by a joint tour with the iconic Gang Starr producer. “That project came together from being on tour with Premier in Japan,” continues Pete. “We would do a show called Pete Rock vs. DJ Premier where we went back and forth with our music onstage and people would just go crazy. They loved the show. We sat in our hotel rooms and ate dinner and talked about doing an album together for hours. It was definitely something I wanted to do. Me and Premier can round up the best rappers and go crazy with this album.”
