On July 30th, pioneering hip-hop producer/DJ Pete Rock and seminal Bronx duo Camp Lo will release their second collaborative effort, 80 Blocks From Tiffany's Pt. II, the follow-up to their 2011 mixtape of the same name. The tape will feature a handful of guests, including Talib Kweli, Ab-Soul and Uncle Murda.

Random Notes: Hottest Rock Pictures

Now you can take an exclusive first listen to their Mac Miller-featuring cut "Megan Good." Over a simple bass groove, click-clack drums and scattered vocal cues from Rock (who has some experimental fun during the track's last two minutes or so), Camp Lo's Sonny Cheeba and Geechi Suede spin boast-tacular yarns while Miller lets his salacious, lackadaisical rhymes flow.

“Nightshift”

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
