PETE ROCK X CL SMOOTH X ERNIE HINES=STRAIGHTEN IT OUT!
The newest issue of Wax Poetics features an article on singer/composer/arranger Ernie Hines. Hines' may not be a household name, but fans of real Hip Hop will certainly recognize the sample lifted from his song 'Our Generation'. Pete Rock and C.L. Smooth sampled the cut (and lyric!) for their song 'Straighten It Out' on the legendary MECCA AND THE SOUL BROTHER album. Check 'em both out below! The lyrics to the song were actually penned by a Chicago public school teacher... Pick up the magazine and read the rest.
PETE ROCK AND C.L. SMOOTH PERFORM LIVE AT THE SHRINE ON THURSDAY, SEPT. 16
