Catch up with Pete Rock
Pete Rock was part of the Hip hop duo Pete Rock and CL Smooth and is known as one of the best Hip hop producers. He climbed the Hip hop ranks, getting his start in the early 90’s.
Pete Rock is a Hip hop pioneer, being one of the first Hip hop producers to successfully integrate Jazz and Rap. Petestrumentals is a funky, jazz mix that you should definitely check out!
With CL Smooth, Pete Rock made dope ass beats that you could really get down to. The beats were dancy and the vibe was East Coast 90’s meets 70’s funk.
What’s up with Pete Rock now?
This is one Hip hop Icon that will not quietly fade away. He is still very active in the Hip hop community and making music.
