MIXTAPE ALERT: Pete Rock James Brown Tribiute Mix

James Brown; genius
anybody that know me know that i am a James Brown fan. not like i want ur autograph fan, but a real admirer of what the brother stood for and what his music is and meant to so many thru the years. dude revolutionized moden music and was a such a basis for hip hop music that one could almost say he invented the first form of hip hop music... the break. i could go on.... but this is about the great mixtape that Pete Rock has dropped on the world in tribute to this man and his music. the mix is bangin,(even tho i woulda been happy with the strait James Brown songs). but the sound quality leaves a lil  bit to be desired, especially from an industry vet like Pete Rock, whose records always sound GREAT. maybe thats the engineer in me. lol. (the bass is too much for some songs, Rock. shoulda let the records be themselves. the bass boost does not work for every record) either way, you're gonna enjoy this one.

 New Mixtape: Pete Rock Pays Tribute To The Number #1 Soul Brother James Brown With Mixtape


It’s no secret that James Brown, The GodFather of Soul has been a major influence on Pete Rock; arguably the most Soulful hip hop musician of all time.

As James Brown’s highly anticipated Biopic “Get On Up” premieres today, Pete Rock reflects on his meeting with his hero.

“When I met James Brown, I think he passed along something to me when I shook his hand. I look at that today, and I say, “Damn, I think James Brown gave me a piece of his [soul] power.”  He came to Mount Vernon and he did a concert with Bobby Bird and The JBS in my hood at a spot called the Left Bank. And I’m telling you I’ve never seen Mount Vernon so poppin’ in my entire life! It was always poppin’–don’t get it twisted–because we used to do little parties in the hood and stuff like that and everybody would come out. But James Brown — I mean I was seven years old, me and my brother Grap, and we walked in the joint and my mother talked to one of James’ bodyguards or managers or something and was asking him, “Yo, can my kids meet James?” And the next thing you know, he came up behind us and I shook his hand and he was like, “God bless you man, God bless you.” And he shook my mother’s hand and he shook my brother’s hand. And it left something with me. This was before he got on stage. He shook our hands and then we watched the show. And I left that place not the same. So you see how strong black music can be. It had a heavy impact on me in my life.”
