Tha Silent Partner - Platters, Act 8: A Beat Plate For Pete Rock
In 2017, Tha Silent Partner kicked off the ten year celebration of his Platters series with the release of and addition to it… A Platters Intermission: BLUNTEDSESH. Well, it’s only fitting that today he closes out the celebration with an incredible addition.
As a project that was so special to Gregory ‘TSP’ Davis’, Platters, Act 8: A Beat Plate For Pete Rock was something that had to be just right if he was going to release it. As such, it took years for it to come to fruition. Not only is it a tribute to one of his favorite producers, it’s also dedicated to his father Lloyd Davis, who instilled in TSP his love of music at an early age.
With this one TSP explores the reggae sounds of Jamaica and it’s incredibly good! So why a Reggae vibe? TSP and Pete Rock share a common Jamaican background and much of the music that his father introduced to him was reggae.
