“Meet in front of Big Lou’s fighting on the street”…..that line was immortalized on They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.), one of the greatest hip-hop songs ever created by Pete Rock & CL Smooth! For the first time ever, CL Smooth explains how Trouble T-Roy and himself had a very serious beef over a woman’s affection in Mount Vernon, and that Trouble T-Roy wanted to hurt CL Smooth very badly, to the point that he wanted to kill him in the street! This resulted in an all day fist fight between CL Smooth and Trouble T-Roy that went up and down the block by Big Lou’s in Mount Vernon! The fight shook the hood to the point that Heavy D had to scoop both of them up in his truck after the brawl and set them straight, showing Heavy D to be the true Godfather of Mount Vernon! This meeting lead to them becoming brothers and family, resulting in the great tribute song following his death! This is a must listen for any fan of CL Smooth! Never heard before story!
