The legendary Pete Rock released the follow-up to his 2001 album Petestrumentals album two weeks ago, and without even having time to digest the album myself (because, apparently, I’ve been sleeping for two weeks straight), J. Rocc of Beat Junkies created a soulful mix of sounds from the project.
Rocc starts the mix and scatters throughout vocal samples of Danny Ray, James Brown’s hypeman, to introduce Rock’s instrumentals. At just over 20 minutes, Rocc also adds snippets of classic Pete Rock beats (“The World Is Yours,” “T.R.O.Y.”) to the mix of the second string of Petestrumentals, adding his own flavor and paying homage to one of the best beatmakers of all time.
Thanks to Mello Music Group, you can listen to the mix and download it for free below. Make sure to cop Pete Rock’s Petestrumentals 2 on iTunes.
