He made remixes matter more than the original songs. He introduced dramatic, forceful horns to rap’s sonic discussion. It almost goes without saying that Pete Rock is one of the greatest hip-hop producers of all time. His latest album features a roster of cult hip hop artists that includes Wu-Tang’s Raekwon and Masta Killa, Dipset’s Jim Jones, Papoose, D-Block and Redman amongst others. Check the classic singles “We Roll,” “914,” and “The PJs” for proof that Soul Brother No. 1 is still crafting timeless music.
