Both Mecca and the Soul Brother and its hotly hyped follow-up, The Main Ingredient, benefited from a lot of quality material so much, in fact, that a wiser act may have saved some for a third album. Nevertheless, the duo's best singles -- "They Reminisce Over You T.R.O.Y.," "Straighten It Out," "Lots of Lovin" -- were hard but ...

Nevertheless, the duo's best singles -- "They Reminisce Over You T.R.O.Y.," "Straighten It Out," "Lots of Lovin" -- were hard but intelligent, delivered with tight raps from C.L.

Clever compiling makes this disc even more impressive: Included are three tracks from their debut EP, All Souled Out, as well as contributions to the soundtracks for Poetic Justice and Menace II Society.
