Apparently this joint is a take on the Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth classic T.R.O.Y.. While I’m only hearing certain elements of the original in this, it’s safe to say this is a ridiculously dope instrumental either way. Mr. Chop, who Stones Throw says is DOOM’s go-to-guy for instrumentals, clearly knows what he’s doing here. In fact, Mr. Chop co-wrote and co-produced several tracks off Born Like This. And now, the beatsmith is tackling Pete Rock classics on For Pete’s Sake.
Stones Throw fans will go nuts over this. You can buy the entire album here.
