    uh…DJ PREMIER vs. PETE ROCK?!??!?!?!?!

    can’t believe that one, was missed.

  • Paul T says:

    The CritIQ, do you mean that John Smith that just dropped on Marathon of Dope or does he have a full length coming on P&C?

  • Phil Watts, Jr. says:

    Let’s not forget the FINAL Gangstarr album which Premier announced last month (with no Solar, of course…although it’s a safe bet he’ll come out of hiding to try to block it, because you know how those types are.)

  • Isaac says:

    Pusha-T’s solo album…if it ever comes out

  • WuBrotha#1 says:

    How about the NaS album (that might include the Lost tapes 2 as a bonus cd?). Inspectah Deck (with RZA finally coming back to produce some beats for the wu brethren) and I co-sign the grand unknown 200%. the pete rock and premier album. But let’s face it, as dreamy as that list seems, we’ll be lucky to see half if not less of those titles. Groan…I wonder what RZA is thinking about production wise right now for his movie….
