K-Solo “Letterman” (1992)

Album: Time’s Up

Label: Atlantic

Pete Rock: “Once I met [the EPMD click] I started working with everybody, from EPMD down. I’m very grateful for that too. The way K-Solo delivered, the way he would spell out the words and rhyme it, nobody was really doing that as a rapper. He was original, he didn’t sound like anybody. And that’s what attracted me to him.

“I was having fun, just doing what I do best. Taking it to the next level and doing it. I would have stacks of beats, and that was just something that I picked from my stash, and we laid it down.”
