Mr. Chop – For Pete’s Sake

January 01, 1970

(5 Day Weekend/Now-Again/Stones


For DOOM, one of the most
imaginative MCs/producers of the last 20 years, to hail you as “The illest to
grace the boards,” you know you got something to bring to the table. And
multi-instrumentalist beat maker Mr. Chop (aka Coz Littler) lives up to DOOM’s
hype, following up his uncanny boardwork for the metal faced one’s acclaimed
2009 album Born Like This with this unique
tribute to legendary hip-hop producer Pete Rock.


For Pete’s Sake finds
the UK-based Chop, with the assistance of members of DJ Shadow’s former backing
band The Heliocentrics, taking some of Rock’s most well-known beats, including
“T.R.O.Y.”, “Mecca and the Soul Brother” and Nas’ “The World Is Yours” among
several others, and transforming them into vintage psych-jazz jams that sound
like they could have been recorded on the old Flying Dutchman label. For Pete’s Sake succeeds in helping to
turn Pete Rock’s beat science into the kind of dusty, impossible-to-find
LPs from the late ‘60s/early ‘70s Frock traveled to old
record shops, flea markets, swap meets and garage sales across the globe to dig


Every fan of beats should check this
thoroughly unique and innovative tribute to one of hip-hop’s true masters.


Standout Tracks:  “T.R.O.Y.”, “The Main Ingredient”, “Intermezzo
3”, “Shut ‘Em Down”, “The World Is Yours” RON HART
