New York record producer/rapper Pete Rock, rap group Smif-N-Wessun, and hundreds of their supporters gathered in New York’s Lower East Side on Tuesday to celebrate the release of their album, “Monumental”.

The night was marred by violence when members of the NYPD used excessive force to quell what they thought was an unruly crowd.

However, eyewitness testimony and cell phone video tell a very different story. Pete Rock’s wife Shara Mchayle, their daughter Jade and several other patrons suffered injuries at hands of the police. Jade was arrested and detained in handcuffs overnight for trying to protect her mother from aggressive officers.

Rock, Mchayle, and their attorney Kenneth Montgomery held a press conference Thursday at Manhattan Criminal Court to shed light on the events of that night and to seek justice for those involved.

NewsOne and its associated site, TheUrbanDaily, collaborated to bring you the exclusive interview with Pete Rock below:
