90’s Nostalgia: Pete Rock & CL Smooth- In the House

For the past week I have been listening to nothing but Pete Rock & CL Smooth. I am actually astonished that I never listened to them before. Their music was exactly what I was looking for; positive and laid-back. For the longest time I thought that A Tribe Called Quest was the only rap group that was really considered jazz rap. Little did I know that this duo actually surpasses them in that genre.

CL Smooth has become a favorite rapper of mine due to his positive and non-profanity lyrics. His flow mixes perfectly with Pete Rock’s jazz beats. One of their best songs is ‘In The House’ which is found on their second album “The Main Ingredient”.  The beat is very chill and CL Smooth’s vocals blends completely with it. Check it out.
