iTunes Review

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.

Other key tracks: "Straighten It Out," "Wig Out"
