Via SNAV: DJ Premier vs. Pete Rock at Lyricist Lounge
I recently headed over to the Lyricist Lounge show on the LES of Manhattan. It was a beautiful day outside to hear some good music.
To start the show off DJ Enuff was keeping the crowd hyped as the main acts were getting ready for the show. Enuff got on the mic and said, “ I'm not going to play anything that you hear on the radio. I'm only playing break beats and classics.”
Backstage, DJ Premier and Pete Rock were hanging out with the fans. It's not too many times you get to see both of these legends at the same time. Watching these two pioneers of hip hop just chill out with the fans and just kick it was cool. There was a lot of media there doing interviews.
They both took the stage and was going back and forth on records. They started their set with a tribute to Heavy D. Heavy D was Pete Rock's older cousin. The crowd gave a super roar when Pete gave Heavy D a shout out. This was one performance that I will never forget.
