Pete Rock Knows Dusty Loops, Hot Bars… & PLENTY About Comics (Video)
Pete Rock is “The Creator.” However, the Mount Vernon, New York Hip-Hop legend is also a reader. In preparation for this month’s Petestrumentals 2 project, Mello Music Group went shopping with the Chocolate Boy Wonder.
The same master crate-digger that put Heads onto Tom Scott & The California Dreamers’ “Today,” George Duke’s “North Street,” and Brian Auger’s cover of “Light My Fire,” hits NYC’s Forbidden Planet to raid the stacks. P.R. talks The Incredible Hulk, The Avengers, and why “Batman is gangsta!” Pete knows the figures, the artists, and the essence behind the animated superheroes.
