Pete Rock, NY's Finest

Perhaps if Kanye, Just Blaze, Mos Def and Swizz Beats say the kids ought to check out Uncle Pete Rock, then the kids will be duly schooled. Certainly, the sight of Kanye putting aside his ego to shower praise on this archetypal New York producer should shock a few people into paying attention - although his contention that Pete Rock invented the remix is a little spurious.

The really worrying thing here is the prevalence of R&B acts in the studio clips, let’s hope Pete hasn’t made an album’s worth of the weak half of "Soul Survivor" without any “Tru Master” business.
