Of his next broadcast, host Jimmy Solis writes, “In the first installment of a series of shows dedicated to hip-hop’s greatest beat-makers, The Dope Show (Sun. 10pm-midnight) brings you the chocolate boy wonder, the legendary PETE ROCK! The New York producer began as half of the acclaimed duo Pete Rock & CL Smooth, who released two classic albums before parting ways. Pete would go on to produce records for legendary acts including members of the Wu-Tang Clan, Run-D.M.C. & Nas. One of the first to incorporate jazz into hip-hop, he is known for his heavy sampling of jazz, R&B & funk records which create a distinct sound that has influenced generations of later producers. Tune-in to The Dope Show this Sunday night from 10pm-midnight for the greatest track produced by the soul bother #1: Pete Rock!”
“The Dope Show” airs on Sundays in the winter from 10pm-midnight.
