Pete Rock & Camp Lo To Release "80 Blocks From Tiffany's" Sequel

UPDATE: "Luchini" re-meets Soul Brother Pete Rock on a pending sequel to their collaborative mixtape.

Iconic New York producer/deejay/emcee Pete Rock has announced a collaborative project with veteran Bronx duo Camp Lo. The group, called 80 Blocks From Tiffany's, has plans to release a summer album of the same name, in addition to a mixtape planned for March 22.

The trio began working together on Camp Lo's 2009 single "On Smash" , which also featured D-Block's Styles P.

According to sources close to the project, the work is largely influenced by 1970s and 1980s gang life in the Bronx, which was chronicled in a film of the same name. Tracks presently include "Mic Check," "Pot of Butter" and "99 Bottles," and there are 14 in total.

Pete Rock has another collaborative project planned for 2011 in Monumental with Brooklyn duo Smif N' Wessun, as well as a "battle" project with DJ Premier.

    Nice. To me, 80 Blocks from Tiffany's was the dopest project of the last year. I'm 29 and have gotten to a place where it's hard to like new Hip-Hop, even though I want to. I mostly listen to the MCs I was listenin' to 10-15 years ago. I know alot of ya'll go at me on the "times change, move on" tip, but I still don't see any new MCs that are outdoing the ones ya'll see as old. To me, Nas, Raekwon, Jay-Z, Killah Priest, Canibus, Camp Lo, Ghost, Smiff-n-Wesson, Prodigy, ect. Are still puttin' shit thats way iller than these new young dudes. It's not enough to be witty and clever and shit, you gotta be able to make good albums man. It's a lost art.

    wow....Pete is actually cranking out all of these albums he had been promising for years. Color me impressed, hopefully we still get that joint with the Dogg Pound then

    • axemurder

      he still aint put out that DJ Premier VS Pete Rock

    • Sensaye252

      I hope they don't go forward with the Pete Rock/DPG collab. I like DPG, but the reason I like 'em is 'cause they're on that west coast shit. When I hear them, I wanna hear G Funk or whatever that style is called. Pete's beats are more for a East Coast MC in my opinion.
