Friday, Nov. 1: Pete Rock and CL Smooth

The Crocodile

By Jose Gutierrez Jr., M.Ed. on October 31, 2013

We do our best to keep these events and parties within few minutes distance from Tacoma/Olympia (The 25360), but sometimes an event supersedes home. For those who claim to love, like or just listen to hip-hop, this is that show. The legendary DJ/producer Pete Rock and his trusted friend on the microphone CL Smooth will be performing their universally acclaimed classic Friday at The Crocodile in Seattle. The reuniting of such a significant duo - lyrically, sound and style - is major.  Wherein N.W.A. brought a gangsta attitude, De La Soul delivered a daisy-age attitude, Pete Rock and CL Smooth brought a sound and message delivered by the soul, for the soul. Should be a fun one. {JOSE GUITERREZ JR.}
