Legendary producer, rapper, and DJ Pete Rock helped cement a culture of Instrumental Hip-Hop releases. Since the first volume of Petestrumentals, the Mount Vernon, New Yorker helped shine a light on cohesive album-making without MCs on the track.

The first Petestrumentals, released in 2001, followed the 1990s where Pete Rock made some of his most iconic beats. This period includes work with Nas, Heavy D & The Boyz, Run-D.M.C., and Public Enemy, in addition to his group, Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth.

This week, Pete revealed that some of the beats from that very era are part of an upcoming instrumental release. P.R. revealed that the tracks are from between 1990 and 1998, and are all compositions that went unused. Additionally, Beat Junkies and JayLib member J. Rocc will provide scratches on the 2019 compilation. It will be dedicated to Pete’s longtime sampler, Return Of The SP1200.
