DJ Premier and Pete Rock at Cervantes' Masterpiece Ballroom, 9/22/12


DJ PREMIER & PETE ROCK @ CERVANTES' | 9/22/12

At the end of their set last night at Cervantes', DJ Premier's Houston Astro's hat was dripping with sweat, while Pete Rock appeared to have barely broken one. Over the course of their set, though, the two matched wits furiously playing through the genres before going into their signature songs and reminiscing over past artists and even breaking out some TV jingles. But their exchange had less of a battle feel and felt more like a big house party.
