Blast From The Past: PETE ROCK – OCT 11, 1988 [DJ Set]
Bronx born and Money Earnin Mount Vernon raised Pete Rock is an DJ, a Rapper, and a Producer. Pete rose to fame and gained his first audience in the World of Rap by working with DJ Marley Marl at WBLS in NYC doing the “In Control…” show and the “Future Flavas” show……at the tender age of 17. He was regarded as the man “puttin in work” because of his use of double copies of each record on each song he spun, a rarity at a time when most DJ’s might have done it every third or fourth…….probably his Jamaican heritage at work.
He was half of the critically acclaimed group Pete Rock & CL Smooth.
He began producing in the early 1990s working with such groups as Run DMC, Public Enemy, Biggie and Nas.
