Not On Label (Pete Rock & . 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.

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 And never.

" a tribute to friend and Heavy D. dancer Trouble T-Roy, who was accidentally killed, packs a poignant emotional weight, but it is Smooth's more direct and conscientious - and frequently autobiographical - side which ultimately carries the album lyrically.
