It is about two years now since talk started about a “battle” album between Pete rock and Dj Premiere. Up until now there hasn’t been any solid word on completion of the project. In an interview with The Examiner Pete Rock said he was about four songs into the project. It hits us as some sort of déjà vu where hip hop legends hit us with talk of a collaborative effort and nothing comes out of it. Some have even released singles from their forthcoming ‘phantom’ albums. Pete Rock also mentioned that he had a lot on his plate including his solo album Petestrumentals II and a live re recording of Mecca and the Soul Brother. Pete recently produced Camp Lo’s 80 Blocks from Tiffany’s II which dropped on 30July and is available on datpiff.
