The Infamous Mobb Deep is the eighth and final studio album by American hip hop duo Mobb Deep, which is composed of Havoc and Prodigy. The album was released on April 1, 2014, by Prodigy's Infamous Records and Sony's RED Distribution. The Infamous Mobb Deep is a double album that consists of one disc of new original music and another of unreleased tracks from the recording sessions from their second studio album The Infamous (1995)

Mobb Deep’s second studio album, The Infamous, defined the New York hardcore hip-hop sound with tracks like Shook Ones, Pt. II and Survival of the Fittest solidifying its influence for decades to come. Being almost entirely produced by group member Havoc, the album became the soundtrack for the streets with its dark soundscapes and menacing beats: We had to look deep inside our soul and create some shit that stood the test of time. We had to shake the world up-that made us try harder than ever before. Who made an album that didn’t go nowhere? Meanwhile, all these other dudes are being successful and making incredible hip-hop. We needed to get our shit together. The Gold-selling album peaked at on the Billboard 200 and on the R&B/hip-hop album charts in 1995.

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

Mobb Deep was an American hip hop duo from Queensbridge, Queens, New York. The group consisted of Havoc and Prodigy, and were a hardcore East Coast hip hop group. They were known for their dark, hardcore delivery as exemplified in "Shook Ones (Part II. Mobb Deep became one of the most successful rap duos in hip hop, having sold over 3 million records

Mobb Deep takes the stylistic trend of East Coast rap to another level. You feel like you are watching each scene build; it feels real. Every description of murder and incarceration feels genuine. In terms of guest spots, The Infamous does not disappoint. Nas, Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, and Big Noyd fit perfectly with Prodigy and Havoc, each bringing their own distinctive vocal approach to the album. The first three are Mobb Deep’s stylistic forerunners. Q-Tip of A Tribe Called Quest contributes verses to Drink Away the Pain (Situations), which is somewhat of a departure from the rest of The Infamous. The production on the song employs horn samples over an old-school drum loop and jazz influenced bass line, unsurprisingly reminiscent of A Tribe Called Quest

Dripping with gangsta menace, Mobb Deep’s uncompromising second album remains a masterpiece of furious New York hip-hop. While the grimy beats will get your head nodding, the vicious stick-up tales of MC duo Havoc and Prodigy will make your blood run cold on brutal highlights like the hard-hitting Shook Ones Pt. II and the brooding Trife Life. Unflinchingly bleak but undeniably thrilling, The Infamous is loaded with classic underground bangers, along with some of the rawest rhymes in hip-hop history.

Improperly balanced tonearms will cause mistracking. I have this issue and my copy has no skips whatsoever and sounds fantastic. I'm running an AT95E cartridge and needle with tracking force set to 2.5 grams. Tonearm is level with platter. I recommend checking your settings.

Rasmus
Yes , the sound is up to par , in terms of sound it really is the best reissue of this album on today

Mpapa
Pretty good this edition , especially recommended for those who missed the limited edition from " MOV " . I can compare both of these editions as I listened to both editions . Of course, both these books have different sound and certainly they have a different sound than the original edition, 1995 . Specifically in this edition more noticeable sounds "ccc..." . But the beats here are much clearer and seem to be juicier than the publication from " MOV " .Regarding the complaints of the so-called "skipping "in this publication . I was lucky and my copy was the only one "skipping" at the beginning of the first track on side C ( Trife Life ) - but this problem was easily fixed - I just ran a reverse side "antistatic brush" and more I never heard any "skipping" on my copy .

I agree with timmyz1989. I have heavy skipping on numerous tracks. Survival of The Fittest being the heaviest. I thought maybe cleaning the discs would help (which it kinda did), but skipping is still a problem. Such a shame cuz these vinyls look amazing. I guess I can use em for display purposes.

I bought this brand new and played it.I had problems with skipping, it skipped thru most of survival of the fittest. And a short skip on hectic and shook ones. I was really disappointed because the vinyls look beautiful and new.

Wasn't expecting the discs to be coloured when I bought this. Everything seems good except the vocals on Eye for a Eye were hissing a lot on the s sounds. More so then I've ever noticed before, anyway. A lot of hiss and pop between tracks too. This is on the first play straight out of the cellophane wrapper. Once the tracks start it sound very good though. Nice to hear those bass lines in all their glory.

alexvangelderen Would you reccomend this pressing? Is the sound quality really good?Thanks It's okay. Maybe look elsewhere of you're picky. I'm not and it annoys me a bit.

Kazracage
Would you reccomend this pressing? Is the sound quality really good?Thanks

Unh
The only thing that concerned me when I listened to this press is that the end of Eye for a Eye plays for a brief moment before the Just Step Prelude. Other than that the rhymes are clear, the beats are heavy and the vinyls look beautiful, an all around great press.

Loni
How is this pressing? Any info on the sound? .

Jairani
Quite a bit of crackle and pop for a new record. I'll give it a VPI clean and see if it helps.
