As producer Pete Rock gears up to release his third upcoming instrumental album, titled PeteStrumentals 2, he releases the visuals to one of the album tracks, "Cosmic Slop." The project will be released on June 23rd. PeteStrumentals 2 will be his first instrumental album in 10 years.
The Chocolate Boy Wonder knows how to deliver that classic New York flavor. The string and bass driven beat is reminiscent the NY hip hop sound in the early 2000s. Pete Rock told Rolling Stone:
"Cosmic Slop" is a beat I made that gave me a feeling of cruising down the highway on a nice day or night in the summertime seeing all kinds of people outside enjoying themselves. The video just gives you a lil knowledge on the vibes I was feeling when I was making the track.
The black and white video displays Pete crafting the beat on his AKAI MPC 3000 alone in a dingy, dark room. After sitting at the machine, he leaves and hits the NY streets. It's worth noting that "Cosmic Slop" also happens to be the title of a Funkadelic album and song from 1973.
