Album Review

Providing a fairly even-handed representation of each album pre-Blood Money, Life of the Infamous: The Best of Mobb Deep is more like a sampler than a proper "best of." Three tracks are taken from The Infamous and Hell on Earth — Mobb Deep's pair of must-have mid-'90s classics — as well as lesser works like Infamy and Amerikaz Nightmare. Other albums, including Prodigy's H.N.I.C., are represented once or twice, and a pair of previously unreleased cuts — middling G-Unit-era productions from Havoc — are added to bait the hardcore fans. Those same fans could argue about the track selection until the end of time (a true best-of might be as much as 70 percent reliant on the first two albums), but the disc is a fine way to get yourself acquainted with one of the most excellent East Coast hardcore duos, and it'll only reinforce the near-compulsory nature of their first two albums.

mobb deep

best of mobb deep--killa street poetry--wicked bomb beats--prodigy and havoc are two of the best...word up!!

I'm a little dissapointed...

I would like to start out by saying that Mobb Deep is probably my second favorite rap(group) after Nas. I have been listening to Mobb Deep for over ten years so I am a longtime diehard fan. That being said, I was a little disappointed, as I'm sure many Mobb Deep aficionados were, about the track listing for this "greatest hits" album. First of all, there was only one track from their highest selling album to date,"Murda Muzik."This happens to be my favorite album of theirs. Grant It, I have not heard much off of "the Infamous"but I truly see this album as a haphazard mix cd thrown together by an A&R douchebag sitting in an office in New York. Where are the "Hell on Earth" gems?(no pun intended)Where is 'Extortion'? Where is Eye for an Eye? Drop a Gem on 'Em? Street's Raised Me? I would have Instead of leaving out all the older, much, much, much better classics from their early work, have left out the Infamy on to Amerikaz Nightmare garbage. Don't get me wrong, I like all of MD's music but compared to the HOE and MM tracks, the G-unit stuff is pure garbage. They should have stayed free agents!!

As golden age rap suddenly gave way to West Coast gangsta in the early '90s, an East Coast variety of hardcore rap arose in turn, with Mobb Deep initially standing tall as one of New York's hardcore figureheads on the basis of their epochal album The Infamous. Released in April 1995, The Infamous was released almost exactly a year after Illmatic and about a half year after Ready to Die — the debut masterpieces of Nas and the Notorious B.I.G., respectively, both albums likewise of momentous...
