Smooth is the perfect vocal match for the music. He is maybe one of the few MCs capable of rapping a fairly credible love song, as he does on "Lots of Lovin'.
Album Good Life: The Best Of Pete Rock & . Mecca and the Soul Brother Lyrics. Pete Rock is like salad dressing when I toss another lesson Ready or Not, prime time After 7 I pull women like a wisdom tooth Without any conversation with Doctor Ruth Making island girls wind with the glamity 'When Doves Cry', Apollonia and Vanity Picture the Mary Jane frame on a mantle Consider me a vandal the Virgin can't handle.
Though I've never heard a Pete Rock song I didn't like, almost each of the 16 tracks on "Mecca And The Soul Brother" is simply oustanding.
Smooth and Pete Rock’s debut thumps hard with the bass turned up to 10, as d horn samples blast from one stereo speaker to the other. While Pete crafts jazzy boom-bap beats that reflect the tumult of New York City streets, . rhymes about how to survive them on tracks like Ghettos of the Mind.
Tracklist: 1. Return Of The Mecca, 2. For Pete’s Sake, 3. Ghettos Of The Mind, 4. Lots Of Lovin, 5. Act Like You Know, 6. Straighten It Out, 7. Soul Brother 8. Wig Out, 9. Anger In The Nation, 10. They Reminisce Over You (. 1. Return Of The Mecca. 3. Ghettos Of The Mind. 5. Act Like You Know. 6. Straighten It Out.
Soul Brother gives Pete Rock a chance to shine on the mic and could be the weakest track on the album, weak being a relative term here. The way the album is constructed there is a definite climax in the middle starting with Wig Out, Anger In the Nation, which passes along a strong message. When I first heard Pete Rock and CL Smooth, I heard some tracks from The Main Ingredient.
