barbonient On this day in 1995 Mobb Deep released their second studio album The Infamous. The Infamous is considered one of the cornerstone East Coast albums of the 90's. Havoc & Prodigy captured that gritty New York hip hop sound with their hard beats and street rhymes on this project. The group produced a majority of the album themselves. Survival Of The Fittest & Shook Ones Pt. 2 are two classic singles that came from this album. Both songs are as well received today as they were back when they originally came out. Mobb Deep helped continue the Queensbridge movement and carve out their own niche in rap with this album. The Infamous went on to be certified Gold in sales and considered a hip hop classic! The rest as they say is history.... #MobbDeep #TheInfamous #DJing #DJLife #NYC #90sHipHop #90sMusic #NewYork #NewYorkCity #ShookOnesPt2 #SurvivalOfTheFittest #EyeForAEye #GiveUpTheGoods #TemperturesRising #RightBackAtYou #Queensbridge #QB #HipHop #Rap #Havoc #Prodigy 19min

lawofgravity 20 years ago today.

I don't know what it is about Hip Hop that makes us obsess over lists: top 5 albums, top 5 rappers dead or alive, best albums of the 90's, etc. Not that it's a Hip Hop-specific thing but we love debating stuff like this.

Top 5 anything is a tough thing to narrow down in any category, especially for personal favorite albums ever. I've pretty much narrowed down my top 4 Hip Hop albums ever (the 5th might not ever be filled because I can't pick just one to complete the list) but "The Infamous" has its place cemented. Havoc and Prodigy crafted an LP that perfectly captured a time and place in NY. I've always felt that a classic album is a time capsule, it's capturing lightening in a bottle - the planets have to align, all the pieces of the puzzle have to fall right into place at exactly the right time to create something timeless. While we want all of our favorite artists to drop classics one right after another, it's hard to remember that capturing that vibe ever again is damn near impossible. Hav and P did it again (arguably) twice with "Hell On Earth" and "Murda Muzik". But "The Infamous" to me is still where it's at.

youngjoven 20 years ago today Mobb Deep released one of the greatest albums of all time, The Infamous... No hip hop album I can think of had been so visceral and nihilistic but yet beautiful. Havoc's haunting keys and flinch inducing snares were the perfect backdrop for his and Prodigy's chilling street stories about life and death in the Queensbridge projects in the mid 90s. Take some time out today and listen to this classic as it sounds just as good today as it did when I ran straight to the record store from the school bus to buy it 20 years ago... #TheInfamous #MobbDeep #20thanniversary #classic #hiphop #legendary #album #currentmood #havoc #prodigy #shookones 42min
