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”. ┬áThe beat is very chill and CL Smooth’s vocals blends completely with it. Check it out.
