Harlem and the Bronx connect for this new body of work, which boasts DZA's unique rapping skills over Pete Rock's legendary production. In addition to the aforementioned guest verses, artists including Dave East, Styles P, Jadakiss, BJ the Chicago Kid and Royce 5'9" also show up on the album.
Smoke DZA recently spoke about the new album. “It’s a vibe, it’s a painting, it’s a moment,” the 32-year-old said of their collaboration. “Something that comes around once in a while. I come from old Harlem, before it was a Chase Bank and Starbucks on every corner. Before gentrification.”
Pete Rock echoed DZA's statement. “As diehard New Yorkers, it was important for us to make a record that embraces what New York truly feels like,” Pete Rock said. “We wanted to bring the listener into our world. Smoke’s youthfulness and energy was contagious, it brought out the best in me, this classic gritty soulful sounding project is the result of our collaboration.”
