Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth - The Main Ingredient

Here's the Ol school joint of the day, the CLASSIC album from Pete & C.L. Many people feel that Tribe Called Quest 'Love Movement' album was the most notable Hip Hop album devoted to Love, but people forget about this album when it comes to the cute n cuddly Hip Hop moments. Most of the songs are about the opposite sex (in a positive light for a change) and the beats are, well...its Pete Rock. It's hard to identify Pete Rock's prime of his career, (although I can DEFINITELY say his prime ain't now) but this is arguably his best work. From samples to scratches, he can never out do this.

I know people always bash his rhymes, I personally don't think they're that bad. I guess compared to nowadays, he'd be Rakim.
