Pete Rock and Camp Lo‘s highly anticipated second installment of 80 Blocks From Tiffany’s is finally here. At this point in his career, Pete Rock is not only a legendary producer, but a curator of lyricists old and new. 80 Blocks From Tiffany’s Pt. 2 unites Pete Rock’s classic hip-hop beat making skills with stripped down wordplay; you won’t find much singing or plug-ins here. “This is true hip hop you’re listening to,” a voice says on “Supa Fly Shit”. Celebrated artists like Camp Lo, Talib Kweli, and M.O.P. rub shoulders with the younger generation’s Ab Soul and Mac Miller for a listening experience sure to appeal to a range of hip-hop fans.
The introduction explains that “what’s fascinating about the setup so far, is that the volume one is really a display of classic Camp Lo a capellas over classic Pete Rock beats. That was pretty much just breaking the seal on the introduction to ’80 Blocks From Tiffany’s’ whereas now we’re moving into the actual motion picture of it with this volume two”. 80 Blocks From Tiffany’s Pt. 2 doesn’t hold anything back. This mixtape is dense with lyrics, and Pete Rock’s instrumentals are saturated with groove. Catch Pete Rock and Camp Lo at the release party at Santos Party House NYC 7/31/13 and stream and download the mixtape below.
