[Extra] Pete Rock and C. L. Smooth About To Hit London

I got news for you!!! Pete Rock and C.L. Smooth will reunite in London to celebrate their albums 20th anniversary, Mecca and the Soul Brother.

Yeah, I know they reunited before in London, but it’s always good to see these two legends get on stage. The first time was in December 2011 at the HMV Forum. They announced a studio album was coming shortly.

When you think of legends, you think about how long someone has been doing something, whatever it is. Pete Rock and C.L. Smooth are planning to drop their first album in 18 years. Most kids that listen to music aren’t that old. The last album was the main ingredient.

Pete Rock and C.L.Smooth will perform on the 28th, 29th and 30th of October at London’s Jazz Cafe.

For those who don’t know, the duo dropped All Sold Out in 1991 and dropped two more albums. The team broke up in 1995 and drop jewels on each others solo projects when they can. These two have collaborated with many, many artists and probably will for a long time to come.
