Harlem and Mount Vernon are united with today’s announcement that Smoke DZA and Pete Rock are dropping a collaborative projected called Don’t Smoke Rock on December 2 (Babygrande Records).
Although Pete represents the older 90s generation of Hip-Hop, DZA believes his “old soul” nature made their work a perfect fit.
“It’s a vibe, it’s a painting, it’s a moment,” DZA says. “Something that comes around once in a while. I come from old Harlem, before it was a Chase Bank & Starbucks on every corner. Before gentrification.”
“As diehard New Yorkers, It was important for us to make a record that embraces what New York truly feels like,” Rock added. “We wanted to bring the listener into our world.”
