Pete Rock and CL Smooth shut down Bar None with the Killawatt crew [Photos]

Vancouver, BC – Hip-hop royalty was in the house this week as the legendary NY duo Pete Rock and CL Smooth shut down Vancouver’s Bar None with a Souled Out show featuring Ill Tone, DJ Marvel, Jay Swing and the mighty Killawatt Crew. Make no mistake, you missed a show of epic proportions if you weren’t in the building for the 20th anniversary of Mecca And The Soul Brother.

Playing their debut album in it’s entirety, PR and CL had fans hanging from the ceilings with hyphy energy, bumping to one of the most influential hip-hop albums of the last two decades. By the time “They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.)” was dropped – closing the evening – literally every person in the venue was screaming out the lyrics in nostalgic bliss. Openers Ill Tone, DJ Marvel, J Swing and of course the Killawatt crew – Red1, HeatWave, Joose, DJ Krec and J. Dennis – held it down proper with that Vancity love.
