This album may not save hip-hop, but it should give Pete fans what they’ve been missing-particularly those who want to hear him get back with CL Smooth, who pops up on a couple tracks. Similarly, Pete makes a terrific team with Pharoahe Monch (“Just Do It”) and Skillz (“One MC and One DJ”), but other collaborations, such as the forced “Warzone” featuring Dead Prez, don’t fare as well. A few missteps aside, the chocolate Boy Wonder’s still got it, and hip-hop heads everywhere should be glad.
