Lab Overview

Although there is no "T.R.O.Y." on The Main Ingredient, the album, the last from Pete Rock & CL Smooth, many argue is at LEAST on par with Mecca and the Soul Brother. Featuring a more polished sound, Pete Rock relies on his signature production style - smooth basslines, horns, filtered samples, etc - to provide groove-washed, jazzy backdrops for CL's "intellectual rhymes and narratives." "I Got A Love(1)" was the lead single, with "Take You There(2)," "Searching(3)," "Carmel City(4)," "Sun Won't Come Out(5)," "Check It Out(6)," and more sure to satisfy all the Golden Era fans out there. This is the Deluxe CD Boxset version of the hip-hop classic, featuring a bonus CD with original 12" single versions, 20 page booklet with extended artwork and liner notes by Pete Rock, gatefold-style sleeves for each disc, and quality, heavy-duty packaging. Recommended.
