Song off the Pete Rock and CL Smooth 1994 Album, The Main Ingredient. The song features the perfect old school beat with Pete Rock providing the vocals. To appreciate the song to the fullest, smoke a blunt with it.
"The name is Pete Rock, I'll take you higher than the ism. I'm on an exodus, Escapism."
