Smif-N-Wessun & Pete Rock Have Full-Length Project In The Works

XXL has learned that Brooklyn rap duo Smif-N-Wessun are currently in the process of collaborating on a entire album with MPC maestro Pete Rock.

Buckshot, Boot Camp Clik leader and Duck Down Records’ label head – with whom the project will most likely be released on – hit up XXLmag.com to talk about the upcoming disc.

“Our connection and respect for Pete Rock goes back to our early days in the game,” he shared. “I’ve been a fan of his production (and his MC flow for that matter) from the jump. Pete’s contributed on several Boot Camp albums, but I know we just always scratched the surface on those tracks.”

“Teaming him with Smif-N-Wessun for an entire project will create a consistency that we think will be yet another dream team match for our fans,” he continued. “Much the same with me working with 9th Wonder for two albums (and another one underway) Tek-N-Steele will benefit from Pete’s vision and experience. I know from talking to him, he’s a big fan of Smif-N-Wessun…. It’s going to be crazy to see where they take this.”

The untitled record will be the Brooklyn rapper’s follow up to 2007′s The Album. – Jesse Gissen with additional reporting by Rob Markman

    I hate to do this. but seriously for a sucker to name himself G_UNOT Killer, which reads “fake ass nigga, with no imagination,who rides nuts”
    Its amazing how quick we are to call people dusty. U HAVE G UNOT in your name my dude. which is a rip off of game who ripped it off of fifty. Pete is timeless and still makes mad tracks for people who do more than mix tapes, which im sure is a majority of your collection and Smif and Wes & Buckshot just tore NY apart with an ill show. Dusty my ass and change your name son. GEE-U-R-NOT-SMART
