As a golden age staple, Pete Rock is often remembered for his soulful productions and bass lines. A cousin to the great Heavy D, it was an earlier loss that defined Pete’s career. Dedicated to the memory of Trouble T. Roy, “They Reminisce Over You” made instant sensations out of Pete Rock and his partner in crime CL Smooth. Another one of Pete’s specialties was his remixes, as his rendition of Public Enemy’s “Shut Em Down” brought more life to the track. Another Pete Rock gem, “Down With The King,” resurrected Run-DMC at a time when they were nearly obsolete.
