Listen: Pete Rock in three records with Benji B

For those like us who are being tortured right now by the nice weather outside, here’s a bit of old school hip-hop, dropped by none other than Pete Rock, to get you going. Depicting himself in three tracks—They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.), The World Is Yours and Blue Funk—he shares some intimate stories and nostalgic musical moments, as we reminisce with him on Benji B’s BBC Radio 1Xtra’s series “In 3 Records”.

“T.R.O.Y. is a record close to my heart because a friend of mine had passed away at that time, a real close friend of the community. It was a hurtful scene for everyone, and [it] came out of that. I made the song to dedicate it to him, and I put a lot into the beat, it was very emotional for me making that song.”—Pete Rock
