"They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.)" is a 1992 song by American hip hop duo Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth, inspired by the death of their close friend Trouble T Roy of Heavy D & the Boyz in 1990. The song was the lead single off their debut album, Mecca and the Soul Brother, and later became a staple of classic early 1990s hip hop and is often referred to as one of the greatest hip hop songs of all time. The song peaked at #58 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #1 on the Hot Rap Tracks chart.
