With an illustrious career spanning three decades, producer Pete Rock can freely decide who he wants to work with. Having already produced for the likes of Jay Z, Kanye West, Nas, Common, Cypress Hill, Method Man, Redman, and Jim Jones, just to name a few, Pete Rock has undoubtedly solidified himself as a contender for ‘the greatest producer of all-time.’
When Harlem’s rising star Smoke DZA landed on Pete’s radar, he knew DZA had something special that could not be ignored. Their 2016 collaborative album, Don't Smoke Rock, was widely regarded as one of the best underground hip-hop albums of that year. - Now for the first time ever, the instrumentals from Don't Smoke Rock are being released alongside a bonus instrumental from a previously unreleased track.
