The Main Ingredient is the second album by Pete Rock & CL Smooth, originally released in 1994. Characterized by sultry soul and jazz samples, the album saw a more polished sound than the duo's debut Mecca & The Soul Brother, building on the praise that they had already garnered. The Main Ingredient is notable for its snappy, crispy drums and extensive use of vocal scratches including that Biz & Big Daddy Kane 12-inch. It contains some of the duo's best-known work, in the form of tracks such as the upbeat "In The House", and the catchy "Sun Won't Come Out", which features a lush vocal sample from the song of the same name by Harvey Scales. The production on this album proved to be influential upon a legion of latter-day producers.
