Pete Rock - Petestrumentals 2

This is the latest chapter—an even 20 slaps and rhythmic levitations. It’s Pete Rock at his best, accelerating and kicking cosmic slop, extending wishes, hope, love, gritty drums and eternal wonder.

UMC's - One to grow on

Hey ya’ll!

Today we have, one could say, a slept on early 90’s Staten Island group called The UMC’s, with a “press rewind” type of track called One To Grow On.
The group was composed of Haas G and Kool Kim, who released the critically acclaimed, endlessly imaginative album, witty, effervescent by disposition and lyrical flow and always intelligent and fresh, full-length album Fruits of Nature, on Wild Pitch Records in 1991.

When it came to the music, co-producers Hass G and RNS decked it out in vintage soul and old Blue Note-styled tracks, with reams of obscure, idiosyncratic vocal samples tossed in as hooks, breaks, and bridges. Their debut album garnered chart success with the duo’s #1 Billboard Hot Rap Single Blue Cheese and #2 Hot Rap Single One To Grow On (which contains a sample from “Ursalena” by Bill Cosby). In 1994, the duo released its second album, Unleashed, but split up soon after.

Since the group’s break-up, Haas G (under the names Hassan and Fantom of the Beat) has focused on producing music while Kool Kim reinvented himself as the controversial underground emcee NYOIL.

Produced by Hass Gee and RNS.




The Bronx native Buckwild, a member of Diggin’ in the Crates Crew and a producer of many classic hip hop tracks with artists like O.C., Organized Konfusion, Brand Nubian, Big L, AZ, Mic Geronimo, Kool G Rap, Mad Skillz, Sadat X and others, made a mixtape in ’92.

Long Beach rapper Vince Staples dropped his debut double album Summertime ’06. A study in artful juxtaposition—an hour-long examination of the contradictions that make the man. His hood nihilism is tempered by astute observations about society and an underlying longing for a better way of life.

He came to prominence with his appearances on albums by Odd Future members and his collaborative mixtape titled Stolen Youth, with fellow American rapper Mac Miller, who produced the entire project. In October 2014, he released his debut EP Hell Can Wait, which included the singles Hands Up and Blue Suede. His debut album, Summertime ’06, is scheduled to be released on June 30 this year.

Produced by No I.D., DJ Dahi, Clams Casino and Christian Rich.

Soul Brother #1 aka Pete Rock is back with Petestrumentals 2, the sequel to the 2001 classic that helped define the hip-hip instrumental record. It marks the legend’s first album on Mello Music Group, a fitting union between the author of the boom-bap blueprint and the label that’s expanded upon his legacy. Petestrumentals 2 conjures memories of BBQ cookouts and 70’s Blaxploitation scores, rattling summer jeep cruises and blunted Jamaican vacations.

The single, Dilla Bounce (R.I.P.) is a gorgeous requiem to Dilla, where the originator pays tribute to the prodigy. You see the full range of Pete’s gifts on display: the meticulously chopped horns, unquantized drums, and air raid sirens. It contains the emotion of a thousand eulogies. This is the latest chapter–an even 20 slaps and rhythmic levitations. It’s Pete Rock at his best, accelerating and kicking cosmic slop, extending wishes, hope, love, gritty drums and eternal wonder.
