Pete Rock Underground Hip-hop Soul Classics
- Words: DJ Anna
- Label: BBE
Don't let the convoluted title fool you-this double LP is the real deal. As part of BBE's new Lost and Found Series, Underground Hip-Hop Soul Classics consists of two never-before-released and long-sought-after albums by INI and Deda, two projects produced by seminal beat maestro Pete Rock in the mid-to-late-'90s. INI (Rob-O and Grap Luva) and Deda-both known for verses on various Pete Rock and CL Smooth joints-come with flavorful rhymes over Rock's classic warm, soulful beats. For classic hip-hop enthusiasts this is a fabulous mini-time warp back to the year 1994.
