    Who here has Pete Rock -- "Soul Survivor 2"?

    What is your impression of it?

    I feel it is a solid album, but not nearly as good as the first. Also, I bought "Soul Classics -- the unreleased masters of INI and Deda" these were recorded in 1995-1996 and feature some of the best Pete Rock production I ever heard. I got that double album last year and have not stopped listening to it. I was excited for this new Pete Rock and found out about it same time as a concert with CL in Toronto I ended up going to. I was happy with the concert and the cd is growing on me, but it still aint like the first "Soul Survivor".

    What are your feelings on it?
    What do you feel was Pete Rock's greatest musical achievement?

    the album is solid...but as you said, the first was better...pete rock used to come on the radio with pirate radio, i think that he showd his dj'n skillz, which are awesome, while doing this...but his greatest achievement was the pete rock and cl smooth albums...too many classic cuts to name...he actually inspired a fellow producer, 9th wonder, with these albums and to me, 9th is one of the dopest out there now, if you have not heard him.....check him out, his frst album was the listening by little brother

    Yo, if you like 9ths production, cop Murs "3:16 the 9th Edition". It is a collabo between Murs of living legends and 9th wonder. I just got it the other day, it just dropped and it is HOT!!!!!

    Little Brother "the listening" is amaizing.

    Which Pete Rock and CL do you like best?? I go back and forth between "mecca and the soul brotha" and "the main ingredient" and cannot decide at all. They are both classics.

    9th Wonder is off the chain. I heard his remix of NAS album and a few Jay Z tracks and I was speechless.

    Thanks for the welcome!!

    Pete Rock's Soul Survivor (1998) is a classic. It is better than Soul Survivor 2 (2004).....however, part 2 is still a VERY solid album. The both would be good additions to your music collection. :hot:
