MediaTakeOut.com just caught wind that 1990s group members Pete Rock and CL Smooth are feuding. In an interview with Yo Raps magazine (www.yoraps.com.) Pete Rock said the following about his former partner:
I know people want to know about me and CL Smooth I am just going to put this out there and hopefully CL will read this and he will want to help himself. If youíre over 30 years old and acting like a teenager and wanting the wrong things; when it comes to hip hop, working for the wrong things instead of the right things.
Iím not anyoneís father and trying to tell them how to live or how to be. But at the same time Iím in this for straight positivity, you know. Feeding my family and do good things in hip hop, teach young kids how to make beats. And heís into the totally opposite of that. Heís totally negative, you know. Negative thoughts, negative sh*t, negative things that he does.
You know, to have a partner like that is very hard, to be with someone that doesnít have genuine love for you. Iím just gonna put it out there like that, weíre just two different people that do not get along.
I donít tolerate any disrespect from no man or woman. You know, it is what it is! Itís like oil and water you know what I mean. When youíre in a group with someone you have to always think about the other person.
But when the other person doesnít think anything about you and you are making the beats and doing all the workÖ There is a time in your life when everyone has to grow up, thatís it!
Sup my MTO peeps...Show called "minute man" coming soon to ChannelLiveTv.com - Promo is now showing and just for my MTO peeps, I'll give you a hint to my contest to win a dvd. Get at ya boy.
They've been beefing for years. They were my favorite rap group in the 90's. I still listen to them. DAM.*** SHAME!!!! But he is right...you do have to grow up especially if your pushing 40. Neither one fo them are hurting though. CL's CD American Me that came out the end of 06' was fire and so is Pete Rock's new one. It would be nice for them to get back together, but they don't need each other.
reminisce and 40 Belows were the ***!
***, I woulda thought they was tight.
THIS IS AS INTERESTING AS BOW WOW AND CHRIS BROWN BEEFING. 40 AND OVERS.LOL
it's 2008...move on..
Why do we need to know the year, toughy?
and WHY are they beefing? they acting like Salt and Pepa...Salt grew up,Pepa didn't...some people still live in the past and thats that
oh well. these 2 has-beens need to get over it & move the hell on. if either of em had *** going on, like a record deal-- they wouldnt still be trippin.
CUT EM' LOOSE PETE! YOU TOO OFFICIAL FOR THE B.S.
I can see this being an issue...especially after meeting both, CL came off kinda "I'm the sh*t" while Pete came off real mellow
R U a dime? Think U have the "look" to be in our mens magazine? Then show *** prove! If U think U can be a Shop *** email us at email@example.com
y are they relevant again...they haven't been on the charts in years...next!
he said a whole bunch of nuttin'......if you really care, tell him to his face and mean it....punk azz...
Wrong CL is hurting. He lives in New Rochelle, NY with a friend of mines sister, who has recently moved to Geogia, so i guess he lives in GA now. If you see him driving a escalade its hers. Pete was right, he needs to grow up and figure out that he is not a ***. CL does have talent, but his attitide sucks. I hope he gets it together, cause I loved them together. He has said thsi to him before, that is why their reunion tour never happened. CL did not want to do the small southern states.
when they reminisce over you!
@ Rawbreed, dont forget about EPMD...They were one of the most consistent groups ever, and at the end they had cats pulling guns on each other...
This is really unfortunate...They were my group back in the day, and both of them still have more talent in their pinkie finger than a lot of these so called ballers out now have in their entire bodies....
Hopefully they can bury the hatchet, CL can get it together, and they can go back to making classic cuts together.
WOW...I LOVED THEM IN THE 90'S
For anyone that has the audacity to say that Pete Rock is irrelevant you need to take a good hard look at your life and ask yourself who you are and what you've accomplished to make your opinion of a LEGEND in hip hop worth sharing.
@theminuteman - Your whole life is irrelevant - abort yourself. Better yet - maybe your wack-*** show wouldn't be coming soon all the time if you spent less time spamming and more time working.
These brothers need to just "Straighten it out"
That was my ish!!!!

to the DUMB AZZ right above this comment:
LISTEN SLAVE, WITHOUT 'EAST COAST' HIP HOP LAYING THE GROUNDWORK AND TAKING THE LUMPS AND BRUISES, YOU POP-TART RING-TONE RAPPERS FROM THE WEST AND SOUTH WOULD HAVE NO STYLE OR SKILL.
THIS IS WHY BLACKS HAVE NOTHING. NO RESPECT FOR WHAT HAS COME BEFORE. NO HOMAGE, NO LOYALTY. JUST CONSTANT ATTEMPTS FOR THE PUPPIES TO LICK THE PARENTS (NEW YORK) IN THE MOUTH.
*** UP AND MAKE 3 GOOD ALBUMS WITH NO RING-TONE SUPPORT!
Pete Rock is one of the G.O.A.T.
i THINK ALOT OF OLD SCHOOL RAPPERS ARE BITTER...BUT I ALSO THINK THEY HAVE EVERY RIGHT TO BE! dURING THE GOLDEN AGE OF HIP HOP (1988-1994), THEY WASN'T EATIN LIKE THE CURRENT AGE OF HIP HOP.....THE DO DO AGE......
dj dyareeyah where you from talking that bs cause the south got a bunch of stupid drop out dope boys and the west lost the game when pac died. The only reason why the south got the game is because yall got a bunch of little kids doin yall dances besides that yall a bunch of choreographers with no flows and one hit wonders so go snap your fingers until the bone showin.
disrespecting vets who still doin it pete rock just dropped a hot cd nobody from the south can do that. Oh I forgot yall dont have any vets to do that. Just a bunch swagger jacking dope boys tryna be like hov.
Not this group they made my favorite song since I was 5 and I still listen 2 the song and instrumental (T.R.O.Y) till this day and they've made lots of good songs what's up with the world 2day
Dang no more friendship these days, I'm starting to think that me and my homeboys might fall out....."You my brother Right"

YALL BEST RAPPER WAS DYLAN FROM MAKIN THE BAND,HE WAS SPITTEN HOT FIRE YO!!!!!!!!!!!! TOO *** WAS AND STILL IS THE G.O.A.T
they still look HOT...
was gonna type the exact same thing! LOL
great minds think alike
You know it's really a shame it's come this with these guys. They were one of my favorite rap groups along with A Tribe Called Quest back when rap music was great to listen to. Back when every other word wasn't *** or hoe or some other vulgar curse word. It's sad that today's rap artists don't have any artistic measure in their way of thinking. Many of them don't think they can sell a record without vulgar, disrespectful, unintelligent, uneducated language all the while engaging in blatant glorifications of drug dealing, weed smoking, guns, violence, etc. So come on Pete Rock & CL Smooth and Tribe, guys get back together and bring back real rap music because the state of rap music today is nothing to be proud of.
pete rock and cl smooth have not been f**kin with each other for YEARS. this aint nothin new. cl has a problem with cocaine, and it makes him lose focus. he sweats more than a fat ladys underarms on a hot summer day.
I was sooooo upset when they split!!! I love their music!!! I miss them.
