At the DJ Hero 2 launch party it was only right that legendary producer Pete Rock was a topic of discussion.
The game’s unofficial brand ambassador J Period was excited to talk about his recent success in reuniting Pete Rock and CL Smooth on the remix to “Our Generation” from John Legend’s forthcoming album, Wake up!
“I’m doing a mixtape for the Wake Up! album and the first single is a remix to “Our Generation” an Ernie Hines song that Pete and CL used for ‘Straighten It Out,'” he explains. “So I had to go back and reunite Pete and CL for this. I worked with CL a few years ago on the “Man On Fire” mixtape and when I asked Pete he said yes.”
While Pete and CL have been spotted performing overseas this was the first time they’ve been on a song together since 2004.
“It’s important because it’s bringing back the classic record they did originally and number two it’s a positive hip-hop record, there’s a scarcity of those,” J. Period said. “I think that was a great moment for them to come back together.”
