The homage to Pete Rock is my favorite this week, the pay homage project by Focus came out a little over a year ago, but I revisit it often. It was supposed to be a tribute album to legendary hiphop producers, but was never finished or released. It’s pretty easy to find all the songs online, and I’m glad I read about it back then because Focus does an incredible job of reconstructing the sounds of producers like Premier, Dr Dre, J Dilla, Pete Rock, and RZA.
