Together Nas and Pete Rock orchestrated some of the most meaningful, prolific music to in the 90’s when they collaborated on Nas’ seminal album Illmatic, which was released 15 years ago this year.
“The World Is Yours” was an inspirational beacon to Hip-Hop fans during the period. Pete explained how things came to fruition. “I got a call from [Nas] one day. I was very excited when I saw that he called. I called him back and we conversed a bit, through the text, got him on the phone and we kicked it,” Pete Rock told AllHipHop.com. “I sent music to him. And I’ll just continue to send him music, you know? Whatever he likes, he’ll probably put to the side. But, I’m real excited about working with him.”
The pair haven’t work together since Illmatic, even though they had great success as a team.
Let’s hope that this relationship doesn’t break-up like Nas & Kelis. Check the gallery below:
