Pete Rock is of course among the top three guys to ever touch an SP or MPC, and Camp Lo is undoubtedly a very competent duo of New York veterans. A collaboration between these two forces should be enough to get anyone crazily hyped to see what these trio of legends are cooking up for us to fill that disturbing silence with. So back in 2011, they released "80 Blocks From Tiffany's", a mixtape that to me was actually pretty disapointing as it basically consisted of a lot of blends and freestyles of Camp Lo verses over classic Pete Rock joints we already have had on rewind for a good minute.
Although not the promised album, the follow-up mixtape that dropped yesterday (sorry about my lazy posting) is without a question the next best thing. As is stated on one of the introductory songs on the tape, this is where the heads really get the real deal; brand new vocals from Sony Cheeba and Geechi Suede, smashing new beats from The Soul Brother #1, and guest spots from Talib Kweli, M.O.P. (how many of us haven't been fiending to hear Slap and Danze tear up a Pete banger?), AB-Soul, Uncle Murda, and Mac Miller. I took this baby for a spin yesterday, and if this is just the mixtape, the album gonna be MURDER! Download below!
