Sitting down with XXL, Pete dropped the news that he will contribute to Kendrick’s highly-anticipated album. Check out what he had to say below.

“I did some scratching and I’m on the hook on one of his songs on his album,” said the New York native. “I’m really excited about that. It’s just a regular hook. I can’t really sing it to you, you’re just going to have to hear it.”

How did Kendrick Lamar and Pete Rock even meet? The superproducer says it was through text messages. “I met Kendrick through texts actually,” he said. ”I got his number and [we] had conversations through texts. Me and Ab-Soul were working together. I was already working with [Kendrick’s] people. I did a song with ScHooolboy Q and Mac Miller where they took a old jazz beat of mine that I was surprised they used. I’ve been slowly working with TDE.
