Rappers are usually bad at producing, and producers are bad at rapping. One of the few exceptions to this rule is, of course, Pete Rock, who is one of the greatest producers in the history of hiphop (I rate him only below RZA, DJ Premier, and J Dilla, all of whom can't rap). Bronx-born Pete Rock can hold a mic and turn an MPC out. As for CL Smooth, a NY rapper who in 1992 made hiphop history with Pete Rock with the track "They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.)," he was not lying when he rapped on "Da Two" that he was "the best that ever did it on a Pete Rock track."
