Without question, Soul Brother #1 Pete Rock is one of the most prolific, influential, and respected hip-hop producers of all time. His song catalog is extremely revered thanks to '90s classics such as Pete Rock & CL Smooth's "They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.)," Redman's "How To Roll A Blunt," Run DMC's "Down With The King," and Nas' "The World Is Yours," as well as modern day gems like last year's breath of fresh air, "The Joy," with Kanye West and Jay-Z.
And let's not forget the masterful remixes he created (and at times added dope lyrics to) with iconic artists like Public Enemy, House of Pain, and Jeru the Damaja, plus, his highly regarded Soul Survivor solo projects. Yes, twenty years deep, and Mount Vernon's finest remains among the top beat makers and most heavily sought after DJs in the industry.
