Rock the Mic Sessions: Pete Rock & Rich Kidd Remake ‘They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.)’
As amazing of a producer Pete Rock is, there’s one song that everyone remembers him by; “They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.).” If you’re in a club/show, as soon as you hear the horns in the intro, the crowd goes wild. “T.R.O.Y.” was written after Rock’s close friend “Trouble” T.Roy of Heavy D & the Boyz passed. Till this day, it triggers emotions out of the legendary producer. “Every time I hear the song it brings up memories.… The music itself puts you in a trance to where you just remember what that song really is,” said Rock.
As part one of the CBC Music’s Rock the Mic series, Rich Kidd and Raz Fresco linked up with Pete Rock in New York City to re-create the 90’s classic with a live band.
