Reseña de álbum

One of the cornerstones of the New York hardcore movement, The Infamous is Mobb Deep's masterpiece, a relentlessly bleak song cycle that's been hailed by hardcore rap fans as one of the most realistic gangsta albums ever recorded. Given Mobb Deep's youthful age and art-school background, it's highly unlikely that The Infamous is drawn strictly from real-life experience, yet it's utterly convincing, because it has all the foreboding atmosphere and thematic sweep of an epic crime drama. That's partly because of the cinematic vision behind the duo's detailed narratives, but it's also a tribute to how well the raw, grimy production evokes the world that Mobb Deep is depicting. The group produced the vast majority of the album itself, with help on a few tracks from the Abstract (better known as Q-Tip), and establishes a spare, throbbing, no-frills style indebted to the Wu-Tang Clan. This is hard, underground hip-hop that demands to be met on its own terms, with few melodic hooks to draw the listener in. Similarly, there's little pleasure or relief offered in the picture of the streets Mobb Deep paints here: They inhabit a war zone where crime and paranoia hang constantly in the air. Gangs are bound together by a code of fierce loyalty, relying wholly on one another for survival in a hopeless environment. Hostile forces — cops, rivals, neighborhood snitches — are potentially everywhere, and one slip around the wrong person can mean prison or death. There's hardly any mention of women, and the violence is grim, serious business, never hedonistic. Pretty much everything on the album contributes to this picture, but standouts among the consistency include "Survival of the Fittest," "Eye for a Eye," "Temperature's Rising," "Cradle to the Grave," and the classic "Shook Ones, Pt. 2." The product of an uncommon artistic vision, The Infamous stands as an all-time gangsta/hardcore classic.

Classic

I was going through my music the other day and decided to listen to some old albums and re-rate them. I gave pretty much every song on this album a 5-rating back then, and after listening to this album again, it only re-affirmed my previous beliefs and made me want to rate this even higher, sadly, on a scale of 1-5 there is no 6, if there was, I'd give this album that rating. This is one of my favorite albums of all time, any genre, doesn't matter. This is also one of the best rap albums of all time. I put it right under Ready to Die, Reasonable Doubt, Sittin' on Chrome, The Chronic and Illmatic. It's somewhere up there, a bonafide classic. Anyone who has listened to this album and doesn't call it NY rap perfection is smoking. 5 out of 5.

This album would steamroll over any new album.

Nuff Said.

a classic

the infamous is one fo the best rap albums of all time. it embodies everything that the hardcore rap genre was. both prodigy and havoc are great emcees. you can tell that when mobb deep describes things going on in the projects, they're for real. they've been there and it makes their songs even more credible plus they are fine lyricists. overall, just an incredible album. HIGHLY recomended for any hip hop fan.

Cuando el rap de la era de oro repentinamente dejó paso al gangsta de la Costa Oeste a principios de los 90, una variedad de hardcore rap de la Costa Este surgió a su vez, con Mobb Deep inicialmente encumbrados como una de las figuras principales del hardcore de Nueva York, sobre la base del álbum The Infamous, que marcó un hito. Las ediciones subsiguientes del dúo fueron igualmente influyentes, especialmente Hell on Earth (1996). Sin embargo, hacia fines de los 90, Mobb Deep ya no marcaba la tendencia,...
