Pete Rock & CL Smooth - Mecca & The Soul Brother (2 CD & 2 LP BUNDLE)

"Get On Down proudly presents Mecca And The Soul Brother, the critically acclaimed 1992 full-length debut from Pete Rock & CL Smooth on both LP and CD. This album is considered one of the greatest Hip Hop albums and is now available on clear vinyl for the time ever. 

 Boasting tracks such as the first single, “They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.)”, a dedication to their deceased friend; “Trouble T-Roy”, which went on to become not only their signature hit, but also one of Hip Hop’s all-time great songs. Other classics such as "Straighten It Out", ""Skinz" (Featuring Grand Puba), "For Pete's Sake", "Soul Brother #1" and the posse cut "The Basement" (Featuring Heavy D, Rob O, Deda & Grap Lover) all showcase the albums amazing versatility. The album is propelled forward by Rock’s quick, soulful interludes; usually bits of old R&B tunes layered with his signature trumpet and sax loops. 

 The Vinyl comes on clear Vinyl, while the CD comes as a 2 CD boxset. The first CD features the original 16 album tracks, remastered from the original masters recordings. The second disc contains 15 remixes, bonus versions and exclusives. Tracks such as "It's Not A Game", "Lots Of Lovin'"(Remix), "Straighten It Out" (Remix), "They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y)" (Remix), "The Basement" (Instrumental), "Ghettos Of The Mind" (Acapella) plus many more! Both discs come housed in individual ‘paste on’ style sleeves with brightly-colored printed dust sleeves along with indepth liner notes with Pete Rock and CL Smooth. All this plus a full sized poster to boot. This reissue of an early 90s classic is a must have for any music collector or fan of good music"

Rob O & Pete Rock - So Many Rappers - 2016

7" - 2016 - Redefinition Records 

Produced by Pete Rock 
Available February 12th 2016

"Its been 2 decades since INI debuted under the guidance of producer Pete Rock. During the mid to late 90’s INI member Rob O and several other Mount Vernon, NY affiliates recorded a string of PR produced tracks that were released in various incarnations (including many promo only, white label & bootleg 12”s) until the early 2000’s when underground hip hop vinyl sales were starting to decline. Today, with the resurgence of vinyl and it’s high demand, Redefinition Records and ST. Nick Ent. have collaborated to reissue for the first time officially Rob O’s “So many Rappers” (produced & recorded during PR’s Soul Survivor era), and Meccalicious’ Meccalicious (recorded during the Center of Attention era). Both Rob O and Meccalicious would gain a lifelong fanbase from their performances on wax. If you’re fan a of Pete Rock and the whole MT. Vernon movement, these 2 selections are essential. Previous versions of these recordings have been long out of print and sought after, so whether you’re a long time fan or if this is your first time hearing these gems, this 45 is a must have"

Mighty Buddha Heads - Speak of the Devil (LP) - 1993

The Speak of the Devil LP was mostly recorded in 1993 by the Trenton, NJ collective, "The Mighty Buddha Heads." The album was led by Shawn Lov, then a young teen, recording under the MC name "Caspa." Also featured as core group members were Neff Starr (Then B-Fine,) and Scrappy Boob (dancer and hype man.) Shawn produces and performs on the majority of the LP along with additional contributions from Fatha Ramzee (Suicide Posse, Royal Family,) Sole Survivors, JaQuest (who later became Masada of Intelligent Muzik,) and DJ Reggie Reg (Producer of the Courageous Chief Warpath EP.) 

The Majority of "Speak of the Devil" was recorded while Shawn was just shy of turning 16, prior to his senior year in high school, during the summer. There were supposed big breaks right around every corner- there is in fact an interesting story about a Newark man masquerading as the "brother of Cool Roc Ski from the FAT BOYS" demanding an opportunity to release the first Mighty Buddha Heads album- a promise that drove the project. Although not as polished as Shawn's official releases, Speak of the Devil tells a story of a group of ambitious, passionate urban/suburban teens testing the limits of their youth, discovering females, and projecting a dedication to "real hip-hop" before the sentiment was commonplace. 

The album never saw a release through the label it was recorded for. It would be another 5 years before Shawn Lov hooked up with Trenton NJ Legend Producer Tony D (Poor Righteous Teachers, YZ) and recorded the sessions that led to the release of the "Respect This" Vinyl and the LP "The G.O.D." in 1999, which many fans consider to be Shawn Lov's first official LP release.
