Perhaps Hip Hop’s most respected producers, the New York based DJ Premier and Pete Rock have been releasing classic material for 20+ years. Premier’s Gangstarr releases, with partner Guru, were instrumental to the culture, not to mention his collaborations with Jay-Z, Notorious BIG, Nas, Rakim, Big L and KRS-ONE to name just a few. Pete Rock’s release with partner CL Smooth, Mecca and The Soul brother, is critically acclaimed and birthed classic tracks such as “They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.)” and “Straighten it out”. Pete Rock has collaborated with a slew of Hip Hop’s elite including Nas, Slum Village, A Tribe Called Quest, Slick Rick, Talib Kweli and Run DMC, and the list goes on and on.
