Mr. Chop & CL Smooth Resurrect the Classics

Pete Rock & CL Smooth's debut full-length LP, Mecca and the Soul Brother, was released just under eighteen years ago. The album is often considered a classic and the duo's best release to date (read: ever). Mr. Chop has brought CL Smooth back -- literally, with re-recorded vocals -- to resurrect two of the album's top tracks, dropping Chocolate Boy Wonda reinterpretations of "They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.)" and "Straighten It Out" on 7" vinyl. Preview "T.R.O.Y. (The Resurrection)" below:
