PR saves my Soul...

I ran across this on youtube after doing a search for Pete Rock:

I had never purchased any of his solo material because, well, I don't know why. But PR is the most amazing hip hop producer. I would say that he could easily produce across genres if he so desired. He is a true artist.

No other producer comes close, there was Dilla (R.I.P.), 9th Wonder, and of course, Premo, but Pete still reigns supreme.

His work is complex and subtle. I have been inspired to develop some sort of tarte in his honor. Don't know what I will call it, but I'm envisioning chocolate, textures, a hint of salt, caramel, maybe the kitchen. With PR playing in the background, of course.

i *love pete rock! been a fan since the '90's. he is so talented and of course as a lot of talented artist go...slept on by many.

by looking in your album quilt (i love me a quilt) i see we have a lot of the same taste in music. i'm loving me some ledisi right now...she's all i can play!

i would love to see and maybe even try the tart you make...well if i can make a vegan version. and of course when i can find some time.

thanks for your wonderful comment, and for coming over to my neck of the woods. i'm happy you came out from lurking...cause now i've found your blog...and it looks like a good read!

I will let you know of my progress on Pete's tarte. I have an idea based on something I tasted while living in France.

I hope you return for more visits!
