[GOLDEN-AGE HIP-HOP] Producer Pete Rock and rapper C.L. Smooth put out just two albums as a duo, but they needed only one: 1992\'s Mecca and the Soul Brother. Rarely have beats, voice and content meshed so perfectly, with Rock\'s impeccable layering of funky soul-jazz samples providing such an essential backdrop for Smooth\'s thoughtful and unguardedly autobiographical rhymes that it\'s hard to imagine one existing without the other. In truth, after the group split following 1994\'s The Main Ingredient, Rock went on to join hip-hop\'s producer hall of fame, while Smooth largely receded from the spotlight. Attempts to record a new record together fell apart acrimoniously in the ’00s, but the fact the two can put aside differences to perform Mecca in full for its 21st anniversary proves its worth as a masterpiece of hip-hop\'s golden age: If its two feuding creators can agree on it enough to be in the same room together, it must be great.
