Pete Rock, AMXXR - 21 Grams: Worth It's Weight In Soul

“It’s like a marriage with his lyrics and my beats; it is very impressive,” says Pete Rock of AMXXR. The Hip-Hop legend compares first impressions to his incredible 1990s union with C.L. Smooth. For years, Mount Vernon, New York MC AMXXR has been rhyming to tailor-made beats from the Chocolate Boy Wonder. However, the first artist signed to Pete’s Tru Soul Records developed his best material in 2021, beginning with 21 Grams: Worth Its Weight In Soul mixtape and follow-up album Dope Boy Soul—both produced entirely by Pete Rock. “I feel like Pete has something to prove. It’s so scary that it’s goose-bumping,” the MC says of his mentor and longtime friend. Within those grooves, AMXXR offers a keen perspective that’s rather unique.
