Today marks the 20th anniversary of Pete Rock & CL Smooth's classic debut LP Mecca & The Soul Brother, and to celebrate, we dug into the 'Plex archives to share Pete Rock's story behind the making of its first single and most notable hit "They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.)," taken from last year's Pete Rock Tells All: The Stories Behind His Classic Records interview feature. The beat for the song was recently re-made for Lupe Fiasco's latest single, which Pete Rock was not very happy about. In reading the touching tale behind "T.R.O.Y.," it's no wonder that Pete is so protective of the song. Link to the story below.
