As half of the acclaimed duo that included rapper CL Smooth, Pete Rock's name is synonymous with beats of quality. Together, they damn near conquered the world in the early '90s with bona fide classic Mecca and the Soul Brother which included "T.R.O.Y. (They Reminisce Over You)," a song so poignant that even today it brings hardened b-boys to their knees. When b-boys sit around and think about the early '90s, this album invariably gets mentioned. Other key tracks: "Straighten It Out," "Wig Out"
