20th Anniversary of Mobb Deep's "The Infamous"

by Napps Pascal

Today is the 20th Anniversary of Queensbridge's own Mobb Deep classic album "The Infamous". One of the pinnacle albums and possibly in the top 10 hip hop albums of all time, "The Infamous" was emibodiment of what was going on in New York and especially in Queensbridge back in 1994.

The  most notable track off of "The Infamous" was "Shook Ones Pt. II" which is a part of pop culture because of movies like "8 Mile" where Eminem's character "Rabbit", rhymed over the gritty beat produced by Havoc of Mobb Deep, in addition to various video games such as NBA 2K13 and Grand Theft Auto.

Short of half a mic,I'm pretty sure most hip-hop journalist would definitely give the album a full 5 mics at this point, 20 years later. 

Peep this rare video of the Mobb interview with Ed Lover where Nas and Raekwon who were both featured on the album , drop by the interview.
