FEATURE: In The Lab with Pete Rock

The Chocolate Boy Wonder needs no introduction. If you’re on this site you already know the resume. If you’re a producer, you probably started making beats because of this guy or somebody he inspired. For our latest installment of In The Lab, Ip traveled up to Pete Rock’s home studio in Rockland County to pick his brain about his approach to production. He gave us a peak at his daily studio routine, spoke on his favorite spots to dig in the Tri-State area, finding samples and much more. He also touches on his new project with Camp Lo, memories of Dilla and Heavy D, and what it was like in Kanye’s Hawaii studio during the My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy sessions.

    excuses 2 why dey like white women

    ^^^

    Named about three white niggas who shamelessly date black women …but a black man touch some white pussy he gotta have an “excuse” to do so.

    Stupid niggers, the white man whipped your ancestors so hard he got YOU flinchin’….

    I’ll never make an excuse for being attracted to PUSSY, black, white, Jewish, Asian.

    Nigga I’m a KING, whoever throwing pussy in my face, if I want it, I’m fuckin’ it.

    Stupid niggas condemning themselves to some weed head bitch with no job and back to Africa posters because the color of her skin…meanwhile she’s droppin’ your BLACK MONEY on Justin Timberlake and Robin Thick iTune downloads.

    I have not and will never make an excuse for FUCKING WOMEN OF ALL SHADES….niggas can check the archives back to 2008.

    Cosign gob about stay schemin…still think Kendrick is better than drake imo.

    @whoever asked- I’d do good…I think I would be more known for my antics. Plus if I kno personals I get disrespectful. A1 ain’t really a battler like that imo and b would get embarrassed cuz I would def tweet all his opponents about his life via his own submission on nah right

    i don’t even think kendrick is that great of a rapper

    he’s rappity rap

    crooked i could murder him

    he just switches his flow a couple times like jr writer said

    and a lot of his shit doesn’t make sense or is dump

    he ended his verse talking about parachuting with a condom

    very eminemesqe

  6. Free J Says:

    Cosign any and all slander against basket case

  7. captain planet Says:

    he had a very cohesive album

    i can’t take that away from him

    but even his most ardent fans have to admit his voice and style get grating after awhile

    some people say he be doing martian voices like nicki minaj lol

  8. A-1 Says:

    Lil bruh I can..I jus dont lol I pray a nigga thank it’s sweet & pull a Kendricc lmfao

  11. b Says:

    and b would get embarrassed cuz I would def tweet all his opponents about his life via his own submission on nah right

    > trailers,skits, songs ,tweets.

    Can you just admit that you wanna b me ? smh free b

  12. Casket Face Says:

    The average black man’s opinion on team work for advancement in America is like having a football team full of quarterbacks. Or a basketball team full of shooting guards…and 90% of them niggas think they the next Jordan.

    …in reality they’re Dion Waiters

  13. S.I.K.H Says:

    IF YOU ARE SO_CALLED PRO BLACK AND YOU FUCK WHITE WOMEN,YOU ARE A HYPOCRITE AND ARE AGAINST THE SO CALLED STRUGGLE.PERIOD

    YOUR BLACKWOMAN IS A CONFUSED SAVAGE BEAST OUT HERE,AND YOU ARE RUNNING FROM HER INSTEAD OF RAISING HER UP.

    YOU ARE DUCKING YOUR DUTY AS A BLACKMAN
    *caps off*

  14. captain planet Says:

  15. A-1 Says:

    Casket I KNO U MARRIED WHITE cuz ure ASHAMED OF YASELF COLOR FAMILY & BACCGROUND! SO since my reason is shorter I win! Lmfao

  16. Free J Says:

    Lol my b a1…I didn’t see that as ur lane. Honestly I see u more in a jay elec/meek mill kinda lane. For the content.

    @cp – na I really like Kendrick diversity with the voices and shit. To each their own tho, I respect ya opinion.

    I see it like this…dr dre or whoever signs these niggas cuz they see the talent. Slaughterhouse all them got bars are in labels but suck at making songs. Kendrick is cohesive and good. Drake is really his only competition

  17. captain planet Says:

    he skr8 skim to scroll thru status.

  24. A-1 Says:

    Uncuhz he ain’t built 2 have a normal convo wit..he built 2 b tormented & ridiculed or ignored completely like da troll dat he is…

    Stay close(nada) lol

  25. captain planet Says:

    anytime a black man says something about being discriminated against in the country that subjugated them for 400 years

    they say he’s pulling the race card

    but the anti defamation league is based in America and attacks anyone who says anything remotely antisemitic

    and no one says nothing, in fact they support it

  26. cOLD Says:

    levels to this trolling shit.

  27. Free J Says:

    Nobody takes u serious b…that’s y I didn’t send u back a verse. I mock u that’s all..if I ever dissed a1 it wouldn’t be wit skits and shit and I’d write some shit longer than 20 minutes lol u a joke, so WAS land.

    Sn: everyone Kendrick called out is considered the leader of their area or has most buzz. Think about it… Canada, DC, bama, Pittsburg, Philly, Cali, va, Detroit etc. hate it or love it it’s the truth

    LOL …silly nigger, you do realize this “confused savage beast” statistically makes more money than you, graduates college at a staggering higher and is less likely to go to jail than you are?

    Again which is why the WHITE MAN marries her and throws his scraps like Kim Kardashian and Joseline Hernandez and you save them hoes proudly.

    Again my nigga you not fit to lead or talk in my direction on black advancement.

    You didnt have anticipation for anything until u started trying to diss me.

    you are actually trying to be a rapper and you remaking songs that a “blog rapper ” made classic.

  50. Free J Says:

    Casket wants to be white sooooo bad. His real gripe is he’s mad he’s not. He hates his skin cuz he’s a little more charbroiled than the average nigga and so they automatically see a NIGGER. He doesn’t want to be one but deep down knows he is…trying to be down wit niggas in the good but goes to the rich society parties? Yea ok

  51. Casket Face Says:

    we fucking way better white women than they are black girls
