After leaking the 9th Wonder and Phonte remix of “Afro Blue”, Robert Glasper’s Black Radio remix EP continues its promotional path with the exposure of Pete Rock’s take on the title track. Working with such a wholesome jazz track, I thought Rock would have excelled a bit more with the task at hand. But it doesn’t seem like he brought too much to the table, besides a bass line and some percussion. I do like the remix, though, I just expected a bit more of a transformation from such a jazz-influenced hip-hop legend.
