God is my father
He created this world for me
So on earth I’m a God
My wife is a Goddess, God is her father
When I say I am God
Don’t be offended
Embrace it
Know that you too are a God
God is your father
Then maybe God would rule the world

Taking U back to the Mecca And The Soul Brother, the critically acclaimed 1992 debut album from the Mount Vernon duo, Pete Rock & CL Smooth. To date, this album has been widely acclaimed as one of the greatest Hip Hop albums of all time.

Mecca And The Soul Brother followed on the heels of the duo's EP; All Souled Out, released in 1991. Despite being a critical success, it had little commercial success in comparison to other noteworthy releases of 1992, such as Dr. Dre's The Chronic. The first single, "They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.)", a dedication to their deceased friend; "Trouble" T. R.O.Y, has gone on to become not only their signature hit, but also one of hip hop's most highly regarded songs.

Other topics on the album range from life in the ghetto ("Ghettos of the Mind"), the teachings of the Nation of Islam ("Anger in the Nation"), bootlegging ("Straighten It Out"), and the self-explanatory "Lots of Lovin'" (the third single to be released from the album). Mecca And The Soul Brother brought considerable acclaim to the duo.

1.Return Of The Mecca
2.For Pete's Sake
3.Ghettos Of The Mind
4.Lots Of Lovin
5.Act Like You Know
6.Straighten It Out
7.Soul Brother #1
8.Wig Out
9.Anger In The Nation
10.They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.)
11.On And On
12.It's Like That
13.Can't Front On Me
14.The Basement
15.If It Ain't Rough, It Ain't Right

Daddy ran away on your date of birth
So you don’t realize your worth
Love from a father you never felt
First guy who say the right things, like ice you melt
Body has all the right accessories
Mind has nothing mentally
Getting taken of by male figures
Showing you only attractive to their figures
Men don’t respect you cause you don’t respect yourself
Now you have a bad reputation
All because of the wrong representation
.....................Misunderstood Soul, a collection of poems available @

The themes of Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik dealt with the pimping profession and the lifestyle it entailed.

From beginning to end Outkast takes U on a trip throughout Atlanta, making U feel like you are visiting the city without being there. With no features other than Goodie Mob, who are family, the album gave U all of Outkast with its southern appeal.
