East Coast legend Pete Rock has dropped off his fifth instrumental album Return of the SP1200. Filled with the veteran producer’s distinct jazz rap sound, the 15-track album is comprised of unused compositions he created between 1990 and 1998. Adding to the nostalgic concept of ’90s hip-hop is Beat Junkies founder and turntablist J. Rocc, who jumped on the project to deliver his scratches.
On top of the album, the beatsmith confirmed Don’t Smoke Rock 2 with Smoke DZA, a collaboration with Skyzoo and a third installment in his PeteStrumentals album series via Instagram earlier this January. His last release dates back to 2017 with Lost Sessions.
