For the longest time I have been listening to “They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.)” and I had no idea that the song was by Pete Rock and CL Smooth. The song came to my attention when I heard it in a basketball video game. I believe it was NBA Street. The horns from that song is instantly recognizable.
There are so many arguments nowadays about how better hip hop from the 90’s is better in comparison to today’s music. I have become neutral on that argument because I believe there is some good hip hop artists today that are making great music. But I do have to say “T.R.O.Y.” definitely qualifies as one of hip hop’s stellar tracks that will be timeless.
