PETE ROCK & C.L. SMOOTH MECCA & THE SOUL BROTHER Limited Numbered Silver 180gran Audiophile Vinyl 2LP Set

Overview:

Mecca And The Soul Brother from 1992 is considered by fans and critics as one of the finesthip hop albums of the early 90s. Songs like "Lots of Lovin", "They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.)","Anger In The Nation" and "It It Ain't Rough, It Ain't Right" have everything; funky basslines, solid production, convincing lyrics and lots of soul. Producer Pete Rock built his beats from obscure R&B, funk and jazz records and CL Smooth added his sometimes philosophical raps.

Guest rappers on the album include Grand Puba (of Brand Nubian), Heavy D, Rob-O, Grap & Dida, and it reached #7 in the US R&B/Hip-hop charts and #43 in the US album charts.

Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth stopped working together in 1995 after finishing their follow-up album The Main Ingredient [MOVLP1634] Rumor has it that the duo will be reuniting for a brand new album.
