Pete Rock Speaks on His Hits

Pete Rock

Pete Rock recently spoke with Complex about some of his biggest hits such as Jump Around, T.R.O.Y., and Down With The Kings.

Here he speaks on the impact of Straighten It Out:

Pete Rock: The CL joint is like one of my favorites because it touched on bootlegging, which still goes on today. I thought it would be a positive message to the people. Even in the video, we were walking down 125th St., and we see the Africans and we just start looking through our shit, and we start tearing up the whole motherfucking table, letting them know, “Y’all taking food out our mouths.” And doing that video in Harlem, in the town of black people, it was just beautiful. When you see stuff like that happening in the game you want to put a stop to it.

In related news, Pete’s album put up some dismal first week numbers.

    “R & G” was an amazing album. Real Talk.

    ^^ Yup but Blue Carpet Treatment was better, for real though.

    ^^^^^

    Yeah, I agree.

    I just said “R&G” cos that was a real music / vibe orientated album that was iller than most “lyrical” LPs released around the same time. People slept on how nice that album was.

    Blue Carpet Treatment was ill aswell though.
