WAVYPACK TOP PICK

When I think of the last project that took me into the world of another and brought me to tears. I think of Mustafa the Poet’s When Smoke Rises. Those types of LP’s are few and far in between. For Peets Sake “Keep Doing What You Doing, Don’t Worry” is a letter of homage to his late father. The project brings you into the warm universe his father created for him and his family.

Consider this quite a feat as the project moves quickly throughout this blissful timeline of memories. Yet reality is apparent for Peets as he shares his coping mechanisms and the stark truth that his closest friend and role model is no longer with him in this life. It’s clearly a journey through the legacy and times of a man who left a lasting impression on all those he came in contact with. A celebration of life if you will.

Our most joyful moments come after the night, as Peets finds peace within God, his family and his art. The project features production exclusively from Sum Total. His production provide incredible depth to the album. Giving the LP a truly genuine hip hop soundscape while prodviding a glorious blank canvas for Peets to truly paint the ideal portrait of how he sees his father and best friend.

“The last thing you said to me was Keep Doing What You Doing, Don’t Worry” and coincidentally I was working on some music when you said that. So I know that doing this was the right thing to do”

As the project takes shape you quickly realize the meticulous nature of Peets verses and cadence selection. Every lyric holds weight, it’s lean, pure, theres no excess. Each word earned its place on the album. Which makes the project flow seamlessly but also brings it into a space where any listener can relate. We grow and we change, all we can hope is this growth is for the better, For Peets sake, his growth as a man is profound. There isn’t a moment where we aren’t proud of what he’s accomplished.

Life is beatiful because it ends, and what you leave behind echos throughout life until He comes for us again. How will we remember you?
