Pete Rock

10 p.m. Friday, March 30. Lola, 500 North 14th Street.

Pete Rock is a living legend of hip-hop — often mentioned alongside J Dilla, the RZA and DJ Premier as a pioneer of the '90s East Coast sound. Rock also played a substantial part in incorporating elements of jazz into hip-hop, especially early in his career when he would add horn samples to accentuate his beats — in this way, Rock can also list A Tribe Called Quest, The Roots and Gang Starr as peers. He's worked with Marley Marl, Wu-Tang Clan, Kanye West, Nas, Public Enemy...get the picture?? Legend. Rock even contends that the production credit for Notorious B.I.G.'s super-hit "Juicy" should technically go to him; the funny thing is he's not too worried about it. Considering his confirmed credentials, it's easy for one to understand his position.
