After appearing together several times in concert for DJ battle showcases. Pete Rock and DJ Premier announced recently that they are working on an album together called Pete Rock vs. DJ Premier. The record will feature 12 tracks, with the producers handling six tracks each with what’s likely to be an impressive guest list. Both Premo and Pete have been reasonably quiet about it all thus far. But hip-hop website Kevin Nottingham is reporting that GZA will be a featured MC on the Premo portion of the album. Considering GZA is widely viewed as one of the Wu-Tang Clan’s finest spitters — hell, some think he’s one of the best, period — this should certainly appease a lot of hip-hop heads.
Pete Rock vs. DJ Premier is likely dropping…next year.
