Throwback Thursday: Mobb Deep – “The Infamous” (1995)
This week’s Throwback Thursday will revisit Mobb Deep‘s sophomore album “The Infamous“.
On Tuesday, Mobb Deep released the artwork for their upcoming collection “The Infamous Mobb Deep“, so we will revisit the original 1995 album.
The first song of our selected five is “The Start of Your Ending (41st Side)“. This track was produced by Mobb Deep and opens up the album.
The second track is “Eye For a Eye (Your Beef Is Mines)“, which was produced by Mobb Deep. Fellow New Yorkers Nas and Wu-Tang Clan member Raekwon both feature in this one. This was positioned as the fourth song on “The Infamous” album.
“Q.U.- Hectic” is the third song of our selection, which was the 10th song of the 1995 album.
Up next in our selection is “Cradle To The Grave“.
Last but not least is “Drink Away the Pain (Situations)“. This was track 14 of the album. Mobb Deep were aided by The Abstract a.K.a Q-Tip who not only featured in the song itself but also co-produced the beat.
Mobb Deep’s upcoming release “The Infamous Mobb Deep” will be a collection of unreleased material produced during the recording of their second album. A re-mastered digital copy of the original album will also be in the collection along with a brand new album.
