Overview

Mobb Deep have kept diehards hooked on gritty ghetto reality rhymes since they dropped the hip-hop classic "Shook Ones, Pt. II," back in '95, and their 2001 full-length, Infamy, is sure to keep heads noddin'. Prodigy and Havoc will always represent for the underground, but after '99's hit single, "Quiet Storm," paved their way from the streets into the clubs, Mobb Deep have embraced the urban mainstream. Bad Boy's R&B princes, 112, lace the chorus of "Hey Luv (Anything)," which may be Mobb Deep's biggest hit yet, while Dr. Dre's right-hand man, Scott Storch, supplies the G-funk on the radio-friendly "Live Foul." But don't fret, there are still plenty of street-credible classics, complete with signature Queensbridge slang and hypnotic beats. "The Learning (Burn)" is one of the best, with Havoc dropping cryptic lyrics such as, "On your team I pull the curtain of beautiful hurtin'." Meanwhile, "Crawling" spoofs P. Diddy's "Bad Boy for Life," and Prodigy addresses Mobb's well-publicized beef with Jay-Z, asking, "How you not gonna show face after that stunt at rap's only awards?" in reference to a dispute between MD and Jigga at the 2001 Source Awards. Once again, the Infamous don't disappoint, and if you were already a fan, here's another gem. Ryan Crosby
