Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth - The Main Ingredient (Clear Vinyl)
|Status:||ITEM CAN SHIP IMMEDIATELY|
The Main Ingredient picks up right where Mecca And The Soul Brother left off, continuing classic back to back releases from Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth. The record is full of countless hits like "I Got A Love", "Take You There" and Searching", proving that the duo is unstoppable together.
As Pete puts it "We were in a zone, and when you're in a zone, its fun. It was a great time, and we put the album together with just that in mind. It was like a family thing, and music was a hobby, not a job. We kept it like we were in the basement, creating music just for the fun of it."
Right off the bat "In The House" sets off the album with Pete's trademark hypnotic drums (with a little help from a Q Tip vocal sample) and C.L.'s elegant delivery. The Main Ingredient is full of countless hits; Other album highlights include "Caramel City", "I Get Physical", "Get On The Mic", and "Worldwide". Characterized by sultry soul and jazz samples, The Main Ingredient is a more polished sound than the duo’s debut album, building on the praise that they had already garnered.
