I’ve noticed the phrase “hip hop is dead” has been thrown a lot around these days. I see it in magazines, music, blogs and other forms of mediums in entertainment. To those who like to casually toss that phrase around surely were not at Jugrnaut on Friday night where hip hop was alive as legendary producer Pete Rock was in the building for a meet and greet amongst his loyal fans.
“Wow, shorty‘s know who Pete Rock is. That’s a good look. Seems like hip hop isn’t dead after all.” said Mr. Rogers.
I couldn’t agree any more after hearing that statement. As the night progressed on as the room filled with many diverse faces ,styles, and race but one thing in common was their appreciation for the man of the hour Pete Rock.
The event started at six in the evening and went until eight at night. As Pete Rock took pictures talked to people and even on the cell phones of fans. He pleasently signed autographs from his classic albums to a woman’s pair of sneakers.
