Image: 1601509 Pete Rock And CL Smooth’s Full-Length Debut
Is Presented Here As A Double LP Pressed On
Clear Vinyl!

Get On Down proudly present Mecca And The
Soul Brother, the critically acclaimed 1992
full-length debut from Pete Rock & CL Smooth.
The album is considered as one of the greatest
Hip Hop albums of all time. Boasting tracks such
as the first single, “They Reminisce Over You
(T.R.O.Y.)”, a dedication to their deceased friend,
“Trouble T-Roy”, which went on to become not
only their signature hit, but also one of Hip Hop’s
all-time great songs. The album is propelled
forward by Rock’s quick, soulful interludes,
usually bits of old R&B tunes layered with his
signature trumpet and sax loops. Smooth’s liquid
freestyle delivery pieces together the perfect
vocal match that, together, creates a sprawling,
nearly 80-minute-long album on which not a
single song or interlude is a throwaway or a
superfluous piece.
Mecca And The Soul Brother has stood the test of
time. The release has been named one of the
essential recordings of the 90s by Rolling Stone,
appears on Ego Trips listing of the Top 25 Hip
Hop albums released from 1980-1998, and
appeared on The Source’s 100 Greatest Rap
Albums of all time.
