This is a defining act of East Coast hip-hop. A real unique take of the gangsta life, really coming into their own with super classy sampling, with properly refined narratives giving a clear insight into the life of these men. This is Mobb at their creative peak and they spin the tragedy and dangers of life so beautifully and tantalisingly, it's so hard not to get caught up in the entire atmosphere of life in these times. I really believe the idea that art (especially music) are expressions of the subconscious of society and culture at certain times, and this record absolutely personifies the hard-hitting, perilous lives people lived - this album is alive! Almost unbelievable, it's like a foreboding of a tragic hero, a man who had a fall from grace despite the incredible stories he told to paint a picture of a legendary scene and seeing men at different points, creating a legacy. I don't love every single track but a select few more than make up by being so damn good. This entire album, so damn good.
Crazy to think I only got started on the good East Coast shit after clicking on the music video for Shook Ones pt.2 by accident. No regrets.
Just when Hip-Hop was producer-heavy (or had P Diddy dancing in videos), Mobb Deep drops this simplistic yet cutting album.
R.I.P Prodigy. One of the best hip-hop albums from the 90s - and that says a lot!
I really wanted to like this because of its status as a classic, but I just don't hear what everyone else hears. The beats are great, very dark and threatening, but there's not enough variety to justify an hour run time. And Prodigy and Havoc have no stage presence whatsoever - I cannot remember a single line from this album. As for the subject matter: this gets a lot of credit for discussing the darker side of gang life, but I don't see what separates it from Illmstic or Ready To Die in terms of how "real" it sounds. In fact, I prefer Ready To Die with its whole "this life isn't great but it's my life and I like it" vibe. Plus Biggie is an interesting rapper...
So yeah, not terrible but too long and not memorable.
I'm not a big fan of gangsta but this is how it should be done. Bleak. Bit too bleak probably as I find this hard going to get through from start to finish as there is no let up in the mood. No chink of light getting in. Though Shook ones is quite probably in the top 20 or even 10 hip hop tracks ever. Stunning track right from the off.
Walking along the streets of New York with all your homies, until the night dims down, that's where all the madness starts to happen.
Straight up gangster. Lyrics are strong but the beats are super repetitive. It just all sounds the same.
A pinnacle of hip hop.
Nothing but the east coast gangsta rap, at its purest most raw form. Melancholic and atmospheric beats and hardcore street lyrics, this is one of those rap records, I'd want anybody to hear, before they judge east coast rap. Simply just way better than anything the west coast has ever come up with.
no one has painted a picture of livin in the projects in the 90s better than mobb deep did on this album, so raw and unforgiving, nothin flashy.
