Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

With one album--no, one song ("Shook Ones, Pt. 2")--Mobb Deep went from gimmick kiddie rap duo to hip-hop's dark horsemen of the apocalypse. Gritty and nihilistic, Prodigy and Havoc ushered in a post-gangsta era of reality rap that privileged vivid street narratives over mere drive-by posturing. As well, production by themselves and guests like Q-Tip (who did the jazzy "Drink Away the Pain") kept the soundscape moving beyond just the dissonant drone of "Shook Ones." "The Infamous" captured Mobb Deep at the beginning of their rebirth, before their formula became redundant. --Oliver Wang

5.0 out of 5 stars Mobb Deep- The Infamous July 8, 2003
By Done
Format:Audio CD
Mobb Deep's 2nd album "The Infamous" (1995) is excellent. This was the first Mobb Deep album I got and to this day remains my favourite Mobb Deep album, though there next album "Hell on Earth" is not to be missed either. Mobb Deep (Prodigy & Havoc), Matt Life & Schott Free executive produce, with additonal track production coming from Abstract (aka Q-Tip). Guest appearances come from: Nas, Raekwon, Big Noyd, Q-Tip, Crystal Johnson & Ghostface Killer. Thirteen tracks plus three preludes, album starts off with "The Start of your Ending" a track where Mobb Deep represents Queensbridge and the 41st side. The next track is "Survival of the Fittest" a truly banging track with P starting off with "There's a war goin on outside, no man is safe from You could run but you can't hide forever..." and in between verses the addictive chorus of "Yo, yo We livin this til the day that we die Survival of the fit only the strong survive(We still livin it)", track has wicked piano rifts, and P & Hav drop memorable verses. This is followed up by "Eye for an Eye (Your Beef is Mines)" Feat. Raekwon and Nas, everyone comes out well on this one. Mobb Deep comes out hard on "Give up The Goods" Feat. Big Noyd a track about moneymaking and survival. "Temperature's Rising" is a more relaxed track which features R & B chorus from Crystal Johnson, and a story about a man on the run. Next comes "Up North Trip" which is about getting locked up, beat to this song is sick. Followed up by two grimy tracks, "Trife Life" a story of a setup and "Q.U. Hectic" an even darker track about streetlife. "Right Back at You" feat. Big Noyd, and Wu-Tangs Ghostface & Raekwon is another good collabration track. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Cradle to the Grave October 28, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This is a classic album. The beats are true East Coast, mid-90s style at its best and the rhymes are timeless. From beginning to end, this album hits all points and does not disappoint. It remains solid throughout.

The singles off this album were "Survival of the Fittest" and "Shook Ones Part II". These were both great tracks, but each track on this album is equally impressive - each telling a different story.

Havoc does some notable sample-work and arrangement on this album. The beats are as good as it gets and Prodigy and Havoc play off each other very well when it comes to rhyming.

I still feel this is Mobb's best album to date. CLASSIC!

5.0 out of 5 stars Aint No Such Things as Halfway crooks June 29, 2001
Format:Audio CD
THis cd is amazing. THe production is tight. Packs some Street anthems like a champ. Nice diverse sound with Q-tip and Havoc handling most of the production this cd never gets boring. Although they are not the best of rappers( even Prodigy says he aint super n..... he skinny) they know how to flip they stuff and make it work. This album is for deep in the streets. Guest appearances are kept to a minimum but when they do appear they put in classic perfomrances. Artists like Raekwon, Nas, Ghostface, Q-Tip, and Big Noyd make the cd that much more enjoyable. This is their best album to me even better than Murda Music. The standout cuts include Start of Your Ending, Survival of Tthe Fittest, Temp is Risign, Trife Life, Right Back at You, Drink Away the Pain, Shook ones part 2, give up the goods, Up North Trip. An essential if you like Northern Rap, or any kind of rap for that matter. havocs production is on point. Pick it up cus you will definitely be bumping this for a long time.

5.0 out of 5 stars HIP HOP'S DARKEST MASTERPIECE... June 22, 2006
By ?
Format:Audio CD
Similar to Smif - N- Wessun's "Dah Shinin'" and Black Moon's "Enta Da Stage", Mobb Deep's (second album) "The Infamous" reigns supreme as NY's darkest and most eerily "street" album, period. With this release, Prodigy & Havoc really set themselves apart from the rest, and not only furthered QB's position in HipHop, but laid their foundation for what would be a very respected career. It's unfortunate that it would be their second release that got them noticed, as in my opinion, their debut; "Juvenlie Hell" displayed raw talent, but quite clearly, still has nothin' on this. Dropping one year after arguably the greatest hiphop album of all time (Nas': Illmatic), "the infamous" became undoubtedly one of few releases to immediately receive praise, from whoever gave it a try.

Now, try & ask any self-proclaimed Hiphop fans whether they have ever heard "Shook Ones part 2", and what you should encounter is a response that should lead you to think you have, unknowingly, just thrown a direct insult! It's a straight fact; it is one of the most influential and groundbreaking tracks of all time!. It is impossible to count just how many times P & Hav have been sampled on that, timeless classics have sampled that track. It's a STRICT, untainted, masterpiece. Similarly, "Survival of the fittest" and "Give Up The Goods" are regarded as two of the greatest tracks ever to emerge from the Gutters of the East, with bass-heavy & perfectly flipped samples courtesy of Havoc & The abstract. BUT YOU SHOULD ALREADY KNOWWW THAT!

Despite these being the significant highlights of the album, it has to be said that the album is VERY consistent and their are alot of other tracks which are almost on par with such classics.
