From his breakout partnership with CL Smooth to one-off collaborations with Smoke DZA, Smif-N-Wessun and Ed O.G., joint projects are just one of the hallmarks of Pete Rock’s legendary career. As he enters his 40th(!) year as a professional producer, the Soul Brother Number One is teaming up with Skyzoo for his latest full-length collaboration.

The as-yet-untitled project will serve as Skyzoo and Pete Rock’s first collaboration together, although the Brooklyn MC did jump on a classic Pete Rock beat, “Straighten It Out,” back in 2007. No word on a release date just yet, but the project will follow up Skyzoo’s 2018 album In Celebration of Us and Pete Rock’s 2016 effort with Smoke DZA, Don’t Smoke Rock.

A joint project with Skyzoo isn’t all Pete Rock has planned for 2019; the Mount Vernon native is also dropping an instrumental album called The Return of the SP1200, comprised of unreleased beats from ’90-’98 and featuring scratches by J.Rocc.
