However, the first artist signed to Pete’s Tru Soul Records developed his best material in 2021. Beginning with May 15’s 21 Grams: Worth Its Weight In Soul mixtape and follow-up album Dope Boy Soul—both produced entirely by Pete Rock.

The pair debuted their chemistry on 2016’s Superstar. The single appeared on Peace Beloved, a project that Pete presented as a gesture of support. In 2020, Pete Rock invited AMXXR to his Tru Soul Records label and gave him hand-selected beats for Dope Boy Soul. “Each artist that I work with I want to sound different from the next,” the legendary producer explains.

Before AMXXR’s proper-debut, Dope Boy Soul, is released in August, fans will receive 21 Grams: Worth Its Weight In Soul—a mixtape combining sharp lyricism with engaging beatsLike the upcoming LP it promotes, the tape’s title is significant.
