Yesterday marked a very joyous day for the Speak With Beats crew as the news came out that the Soul Brother # 1 Pete Rock, announced that he would release the long awaited follow up to his landmark instrumental album, Petestrumentals. Along with the news that the album would drop on 06/23/2015, Petestrumentals 2 will be released on Mello Music Group, which makes us even more excited as Mello Music Group has consistently served as a platform to some of the premier producers in the game. Petestrumentals 2 is poised to become one of the most celebrated albums on the prominent label and here is what Mello Music Group had to say about the album...
"Petestrumentals 2 conjures memories of BBQ cookouts and 70s Blaxploitation scores, rattling summer jeep cruises and blunted Jamaican vacations. There’s a gorgeous requiem to Dilla (“Dilla Bounce (R.I.P),” where the originator pays tribute to the prodigy. You see the full range of Rock’s gifts on display: the meticulously chopped horns, unquantized drums, and air raid sirens. It contains the emotion of a thousand eulogies."
To build even more anticipation for the album, Pete Rock released the lead single titled "One, Two, A Few More". The instrumental was birthed in 1995 and the beat God was patiently waiting for the perfect time to unleash the track, which features a funky guitar riff, neck-snapping drums, soulful vocal sample, and the signature Pete Rock bassline.
