IN TOO DEEP
What was hip-hop like without Mobb Deep? It wasn’t nearly as dark, that’s for sure. The world had to survive eight whole years without Prodigy and Havoc’s contributions after the Queens power duo parted ways following a Twitter spat. However, this year the pair released their eighth album together, which was kind of expected, since they reconciled in early 2013 with a tour celebrating the 20th anniversary of their critically acclaimed career. The Infamous Mobb Deep is a perfect ode to the gritty NYC sound that made them such a classic act whose presence we genuinely missed. Let’s hope that their next break is not nearly as long.
