20th Anniversary Mecca And The Soul Brother Tour Ft. Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth
Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth have officially announced the dates for their “20th Anniversary Mecca And The Soul Brother Tour.” Frequent collaborators Camp Lo will be opening for the classic duo. Set to begin October 15 at the Howard Theater in Washington, D.C. and run through November 15 at Middle East in Boston, Massachusetts.
Named after the New York duo’s debut album, 1992’s Mecca And The Soul Brother, this will be the first time the pair has toured North America in nearly 2 decades. This is an event long overdue for many Hip Hop fans.
“It means a lot because music is the foundation of the world,” C.L. Smooth said in a press release. “It gives you an opportunity to know what we contributed and how inspired we were as very young men to get the opportunity to make good music.”
“People will finally get to hear good music and see a good show,” Pete Rock added. “They get to come out, have a good time and enjoy the music they loved for years.”
The Mecca And The Soul Brother album included the timeless “They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.),” which was named one of “The 50 Greatest Hip-Hop Songs Of All Time” by Rolling Stone magazine. This song is a staple within the hip hop culture which even stirred some minor tensions when Lupe Fiasco recently released a new version of the song.
