Pete Rock

Iconic beatmaker and MC, Pete Rock had already produced classics for Heavy D, Public Enemy and his go-to MC CL Smooth when he collab'ed with Nas. But the result, "The World Is Yours," is undoubtedly one of his greatest works, and arguably one of Nas's best songs as well. PR has recorded, DJ'ed and toured extensively since then, dropping several solo albums and producing for various rappers and singers. He recently thrust his name back in the spotlight by producing "The Joy" from Jay Z's and Kanye West's Watch the Throne.
