The Soft, Positive Side of Hip-Hop

Pete Rock and CL Smooth – “Searching”

The legendary duo from Mount Vernon introduced some of hip-hop most memorable ballads such as “Lots of Lovin,” “Take You There,” “I Got A Love,” and “It’s A Love Thing.”  But, perhaps, their most hypnotic and sensual ballad is “Searching,” which utilizes a beautiful sampling of Roy Ayers’ classic song with the same title.

Memorable lyrics from the song:

You’re everything that I dream about, talk about
Walk around and brag about, cause I don’t give a d*** about
What they say, what he say, or she say
I’m addicted like drugs to your loving, but hey
You got me strung like I’m young and it’s crazy
You’re making me nervous, I don’t deserve this, I’m Swayze
I wish I could be but you really got a hold on me (© CL Smooth)
