Smoke DZA and Pete Rock are Limitless in Exclusive Behind The Scenes Video
Spend the day with the NYC duo as they prep for their NYC show
There’s a reason that Smoke DZA and Pete Rock’s Don’t Smoke Rock made it into our Top 50 Albums of 2016 list. They were able to capture a special moment in time–Blaxploitation films–but flip it to sound like it belonged in 2016. It succeeded where many hip hop albums failed: bridging a gap between the old guard and today’s youth.
A few days before the release of the album, we spent the day with Smoke and Pete as they rehearsed for the show that night at Highline Ballroom in NYC. Smoke explained a little background history between him and Pete Rock and how special it was to work on an entire album with him. We also headed uptown with Smoke DZA to get his outfit for the night in order. Then it was showtime for DZA and Rock.
