Pete Rock & CL Smooth - They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.) (Video)

by kennylavish • 5,085,648 views

FROM THE ALBUM "MECCA AND THE SOUL BROTHER" (1992).

At the end of the day, after all of my years diving deep into hip hop in all its forms, being one of the biggest pieces of my life, this is still to me the greatest hip hop song of all time.

+frogblunt def one of the best if not the best. keep studying this joint and you'll discover new things every time. Try to duplicate the drum beat and you realize that the drummer played from the heart with almost no repeating pattern - just whatever felt right

All these kids on here saying "I was born in 98" or whatever and "I wish I lived in this era", it's up to y'all to keep this shit here alive, the more you buy that new shit, that fake shit, the more you support that, then the more blessings like this right here die, you gotta grab that brass ring and pass this torch, real hip hop is on serious life support, look around, something's gotta give quick

I'm not perfect but my good outweighs my bad. I don't judge anyone because you gotta mirror yourself and reflect on your actions to become a better you. You always got to be honest with yourself. I don't judge no one because my life and I'm not perfect!! Everything you go through makes you the person you are today. I don't have no regrets in life, everything was supposed to happen this way no matter the outcome. I own everything I do down this mother fucker, I'm gonna always be real wit me. King that's your experience no matter the outcome, you gotta go thru things to know the difference for later!!! At least you didn't cheat yourself out of any enjoyments in life. Hatap King!!! You are truly A King in your own right!!!!

I love how they sampled some happy hippy song and then slowed down the tempo to give the track that dark feel to it
Report spam or abuse
word sampling and chopping and screwing breaks is an art form unto itself...dudes spend years trying to perfect that shit... but honestly the lyrics are what i love most about this track... my childhood experience and family are highly similar is many respects... just one of those relatable joints that almost anyone from the other side of the tracks can relate to

This was way back when rap music used to be real. Real rap like this song. I used to love rap music. Now rap music of today is completely 100% nothing & worthless to me now & I love rap music. Rap today is worthless ! I can reemphasize that enough !

All I fuck with is old school and a lil bit of new school, you old ass dudes need to get your head out your asses, don't generalize all the 94+ kids with that bullshit young thug and what not.

All you young people need to stop dissing your own generation because you have a great opportunity to take it further. All of us older people need to realize that hip hop has done its job for the purpose it was intended. Let's move on to create the next level of music now. There is a generational change in music every 10 years. It seems like it's always easier for the present generation to appreciate preceding generations of music than it is for the older generations to appreciate the current generations' style of music and feel in it what the present generation feels in it.
