This makes so much sense.
Pete Rock says he’ll be on Kendrick Lamar’s highly anticipated sophomore album. The legendary super producer has worked with so many great artists over the years, and Kendrick Lamar has now become one of the lucky ones.
In a recent interview with XXL, Pete Rock revealed he first came in contact with Kendrick Lamar via text messages.
“Kendrick Lamar, I worked with him on his new album…I met Kendrick through texts actually. I got his number and [we] had conversations through texts. Me and Ab-Soul were working together. I was already working with [Kendrick’s] people. I did a song with ScHooolboy Q and Mac Miller where they took a old jazz beat of mine that I was surprised they used. I’ve been slowly working with TDE.”
Surprisingly, Pete didn’t produce the song he’s featured on. Instead, he says he laid down a few vocals for a hook.
“I did some scratching and I’m on the hook on one of his songs on his album. I’m really excited about that. It’s just a regular hook. I can’t really sing it to you, you’re just going to have to hear it.”
We still don’t know when Kendrick will release his long-awaited sophomore album. It will be two years since his debut album, good kid, m.A.A.d. city, was released in October.
