Legendary New York hip-hop producer, DJ, and MC famed for his unique vintage soul and jazz samples. Considered one of the greatest contributors to, and most influential names in East-Coast hip-hop.

First emerging in the early 1990s in partnership with rapper C.L. Smooth, Rock has since become a must-have producer for East-Coast hip-hop artists, as well as producing his own highly influential and critically acclaimed solo albums.

His collaborators include Nas, Jeru The Damaja, Talib Kweli, and Ghostface Killah to name just a few.

Rock’s latest solo album NY’s Finest, released through indie label Nature Sounds, 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.

Biog

Born in the Bronx, NY by Jamaican parents, a teenage Pete Rock first hit the scene in the late 80's when he joined legendary DJ/producer Marley Marl on NY station WBLS' show "In Control With Marley Marl." The popularity of the radio show soon led Pete Rock to experiment with production. In 1991, he was joined by up-and-coming rapper CL Smooth and released the debut EP, All Souled Out. In 1992, the duo dropped Mecca And The Soul Brother, one of the most critically acclaimed hip-hop albums of all time. Pete and CL eventually released The Main Ingredient in 1994. Although the album was very well received by critics and fans alike, the project marked the last effort for the duo.

Since then, Pete Rock has lent his production skills to some of the greatest MC's. He crafted and remixed hits for Nas, Biggie, Jeru The Damaja, and, more recently, Jim Jones, Talib Kweli’s Ear Drum, Redman’s Red’s Gone Wild and Ghostface, for whom he produced tracks for Fishscale, one of music critics’ favorite hip hop albums of 2006.


Pete Rock is considered by most to be one of the greatest hip-hop producers. Following the split with CL Smooth, Pete has released a number of solo projects. In 1998, Loud Records released Soul Survivor; that was followed in 2001 by a collection of instrumental tracks aptly titled PeteStrumentals. In 2004, he released Soul Survivor II on his own imprint Soul Brother Recordings.

Nature Sounds is quickly becoming the indie home for classic hip-hop. During the last couple of years the label has released critically acclaimed projects by artists that include MF DOOM, Wu-Tang’s Masta Killa (Made In Brooklyn), and most recently, Mobb Deep’s Havoc (The Kush).

Was alright, not amazing. Standard issue dj set really. Pete looked like he was using Serato for the first time and couldnt quite get the hang of it. He sounded like a dickhead too afterwards when he was trying to sell cds
"Buy my mixtape.... Buy my mixtape... I aint signing no sweaty T Shirts, buy my cd and ill sign it"
