Good review Beez – don’t forget Little Johnny from the Hospitul predates Petestrumentals by a couple of years. That man El-P’s always ahead of the curve.

john montalvo says:

Beats werent drawn out, actually this volume is shorter than the first. The avg song time was 4:30-5:20 here it barely cracks under 3 minutes.

Mello Music Group says:

Dope review, appreciated!

djwarzone1 says:

I was hoping you did this beezy and glad you did the collabo with Anthony. I appreciated the feel of that nostalgic Pete Rock sound and he had me quite entertained the way he snuck in some old familiar drum patterns then switched up to the more experimental. I agree about a couple of tracks being drawn out but overall mostly enjoyable. I want to know what you guys think about Alchemist and Oh No , Los Santos

Lungile Mabumbulu says:

Great review guys. I don’t think Pete was the first for instrumental project s though, DJ Shadow did it back in ’96 too

Karen Blommer says:

beat at the beginning?

David Luiz says:

Great review! what rating would you two give this project?

Ian Sayres says:

+beezy430 Hey, love what you and the rest of the DEHH crew are doing with your opinions on Hip-Hop music. Lately I’ve been listening to a lot of Black Milk and Apollo Brown instrumentals and was wondering what else you would recommend that has that same sound?

RicardoMF SuperVillan says:

Good review. You should keep doing more videos.

Marco Herrera Chico says:

Madz Midz says:

Any other good instrumental albums out?

SandersRobin24 says:

For me the first Petestrumentals is one of my favorite albums, I still listen to it now so I was pumped for Petestrumentals 2.  After sitting with it for over 2 weeks I just don’t think it compares at all to the first one.  I’m not saying he had to top it because I don’t think anyone ever could.  This one has a totally different sound but it was still effective.  The first one was like the ultimate stress reliever with such smooth and jazzy beats.  I would say this one was more diverse but it doesn’t have the gems that blew me away like Smooth Sailing, For The People, Pete’s Jazz.  Overall this was still great, I loved the first 3 songs he released with Cosmic Slop being the best joint on the album.  Adrenaline and On and On really showed the diversity on the album but a few tracks on the second half just don’t seem like they can grow but we’ll see how this ages.  Hopefully he has more to offer down the road, he’s definitely the best producer the game has ever scene in my opinion.
