Pete Rock

Hip hop legend Pete Rock, known among other things for his classic 1992 collaboration with CL Smooth, Mecca and the Soul Brother, put out a new instrumental album this week. It's called Petestrumentals 2, and it's the long-awaited sequel to 2001's Petestrumentals. You can stream the whole thing below.

Pete is celebrating the album with a release show at Brooklyn Bowl TONIGHT (6/24), and he's promising a ton of exciting special guest appearances from Smoke DZA, Slum Village, Termanology, Camp Lo, Sean Price, Das EFX, Large Professor and Royal Flush. DJ Natasha Diggs is opening the night, and Pharoahe Monch is hosting. Tickets are available.

Pete's next live appearance is a SummerStage show on July 19 in Queensbridge Park, where he'll be performing alongside a screening of Nas documentary Time Is Illmatic. That goes from 7-9 PM and is totally free.
