Mobb Deep - The Infamous Archives

Link (via), One-sheet

“The Infamous Archives” is a 30 track, double disc walk through the Mobb Deep vaults. With rare exception these cuts have not been heard by Mobb Deep fans. The cuts on “The Infamous Archives” go back to the group’s mid to late 90s hardcore heyday. Start to finish this release is illustrative of Mobb Deep’s dark, dynamic, grimy sound with haunting melodies courtesy of Havoc’s production, that to many represented “street” in a way not done by anyone ever before. Additionally, Prodigy’s penchant for starting off a verse with an attention grabbing line, writing raw rhymes based heavily on the Queensbridge slang they call the dunn language, and a distinct, hen-rock induced delivery appeals to the core fan’s lyrical sensibilities. The double disc boasts collaborations with 50 Cent, Snoop Dogg, Busta Rhymes, Cormega, Tragedy Khadafi, Onyx, Infamous Mobb, Big Noyd, Alchemist and More!
