Pete Rock has been keeping busy. We already knew that he has a full album with Camp Lo, 80 Blocks From Tiffany’s, due out this summer. There’s also his joint album with DJ Premier that will hopefully see the light of day this year. And now, we have learned that the Chocolate Boy Wonder’s collaboration with Smif N Wessun, Monumental, is dropping in June. The entire album is produced by Pete Rock and includes features from the likes of Raekwon, Bun B, Pharoahe Monch, and Styles P. Considering the players involved, I expect nothing but gritty and great boom-bap on this one.
Monumental is due out June 28.
