Pete Rock Tells All: The Stories Behind His Classic Records

Jeru The Damaja “Can’t Stop The Prophet (Pete Rock Remix)” (1994)

Album: "You Can’t Stop the Prophet" Single

Label: Payday

Pete Rock: “I just asked for the tempo, and built my own beat around that tempo. I did [remixes that way] a lot. I grabbed a couple exciting sounds, put them together, mixed them up, saw what I could use, and what I couldn’t. If I felt something was too much, I took it out, left the rest, and put something intriguing on top.

“I had a relationship with [Jeru and DJ Premier] at that time. I had a relationship with everybody, but I wasn’t hanging with those guys. Payday [Records] asked me to do [the remix]. [When Premier heard the remix] he loved it.”
