Pete Rock On Kendrick Lamar’s good kid, m.A.A.d city Follow-Up? Yep
Pete Rock is an esteemed source of inspiration within Black Hippy. After all, Ab-Soul (who worked on 80 Blocks From Tiffany’s) has a tattoo of the Mount Vernon, New York artist known for making some seminal 1990s songs alongside then-partner CL Smooth.
However, Kendrick Lamar is also up on things.
Pete Rock told XXL this week that his contributions are included on K-Dot’s second major label album, an LP still sans title to the fans. “I did some scratching and I’m on the hook on one of his songs on his album,” said Pete, who worked with MC Eiht—Kendrick’s most veteran guest on 2012’s good kid, m.A.A.d city. “I’m really excited about that. It’s just a regular hook. I can’t really sing it to you, you’re just going to have to hear it.”
Outside of his own celebrated discography, Pete Rock has worked on some classic albums including Nas’ Illmatic, Main Source’s Breaking Atoms, and Rakim’s The 18th Letter. Pete Rock, who is planning a collaborative album with DJ Premier, is said to join Premo in producing De La Soul’s upcoming mixtape project.
