Pete Rock Explains Involvement With HRSMN And "Watch the Throne"
The Chocolate Boy Wonder talks about his hand in the HRSMN album and the Jay-Z/Kanye West project, "Watch the Throne," while also saying he'd like to work with Eminem, Nas and Mobb Deep.
Acclaimed producer Pete Rock recently spoke on who he'd like to work with and how he may have a hand in some highly anticipated albums. During an interview with Conspiracy Worldwide Radio, he touched on his involvement with the HRSMN disc and his participation in Watch the Throne, the forthcoming album by Jay-Z and Kanye West.
When asked if he'd be included in the Watch the Throne release, The Chocolate Boy Wonder said he was unsure.
"Well, I did a song called 'The Joy' that didn't make Kanye's album and it actually came out on a mixtape. So, I have no idea if they're going to use that or if they'll use new beats. I have no clue. Once you give someone beats, you just kind of step out of their way," he told Conspiracy Worldwide. "Hopefully I'm on that album. I hope I am on that album. You never know, because people always take beats, use them but don't put them out because they have other records that outweigh...You have to do that when you're making an album. You have to listen to everything you make and pick and choose the best songs for the album. So, sometimes some records don't make it. I thought it was a great song regardless."
Another anticipated release he's been rumored to be involved in is the HRSMN project, one that Ras Kass recently talked about. When Pete Rock was asked about collaborating with them, he seemed optimistic that he would have a beat on the release.
"You've got the best of the best right there, man. What more could you ask for with them four? So, I should be a part of that album," he said of the collaborative effort from Ras Kass, Canibus, Killah Priest and Kurupt. "I'm definitely going to get involved with that album. I'm going to get at RZA and whoever I've got to get at," he added, making a reference to the fact that RZA is expected to executive produce the album.
