PeteRock

Just in time for Record Store Day tomorrow, FuseTV is celebrating with a special RSD episode of Crate Diggers where their guests talk about the rarest vinyl they’ve ever come across. Here, musicians and DJs such as Cut Chemist, Z-Trip, Hank Williams III, Just Blaze, Pete Rock and more pick out meaningful items in their collection. For some, these are albums with a heavy sentimental attachment; for others, they’re rare test pressings that were only meant for the artist and producers’ ears.
