This stream of J Rocc's Some Cold Rock Stuf is actually only half of the album. Each double CD/triple LP contains a "mystery disc" of unlabeled, untitled hullabaloo. And there are three of them, randomly assorted throughout the physical copies. Which is ridiculous! J Rocc, of the World Famous Beat Junkies, clearly has a sense of humor and the below standard half of Rock Stuf reflects that. A record of instrumental hip hop, borne of samples, scratches and lots of drums, the kind of music that is a smoker's delight. It's released, appropriately, on Stones Throw, America's most blunted label and is out today.
