Product Description

Perhaps this would have been better named Murda Muzak. With their fourth album, the third since their seminal The Infamous, Mobb Deep recycle themselves to the point of self-parody. How much slower and darker can your grooves get? How many rhymes about cash, crime, and hoes can you write? How many albums can Raekwon and Nas cameo on? There are moments that will shake you out of the soporific slumber: "Adrenaline" with its pounding drum track, and the slick, sliding bass line on "The Realest," featuring a cameo from Kool G Rap. However, during Mobb Deep's hiatus between Hell On Earth and Murda Muzik, artists like DMX, the Ruff Ryders, and Ja Rule filled the vacuum left by the Mobb's crime stories. To keep up, Havoc and Prodigy are going to have to get Deep(er) than the thugged-out "Quiet Storm" they present here. --Oliver Wang

Murda Muzik, clearly the most underrated album put forth by Mobb Deep, commands a degree of respect and admiration that has sadly been overlooked from the very moment its release. From editorials to publication reviews to public forums such as Amazon.com, critics and fans alike have failed to agree on the album's significance in the rap community.

Murda Muzik, to the dismay of a great number of listeners, may readily be perceived as a "dead end" for Mobb Deep. That is to say, the lyrical approach and music production are exactly as expected, judging from their previous albums. The same dark, menacing, repetitive beats lace the majority of tracks. The lyrics focus on portraying a world of underground violence, societal corruption, and lower-class American hopelessness. Flashes of ill-obtained luxury and criminal forte emerge from time to time, but never optimism. It is more or less a style identical to that of Hell on Earth and The Infamous, leading many to believe that Murda Muzik discredits the Mobb's potential for artistic maturity. It is this same resistance to change, however, that others identify as its sacred andinvaluable characteristic.

Prior to the release of Murda Muzik, Mobb Deep had accumulated a fair amount of financial success and an even greater amount of street credit. With The Infamous and Hell on Earth having quickly established themselves as gangster rap classics, with Prodigy and Havoc not yet old enough to drink under U.S. law, and with an ever-expanding mainstream base for hip hop music leading into the late 1990's, the stage could not have been set more perfectly from a cash-making point of view.

Every album that Mobb Deep has made since "The "Infamous" has been a classic. The "Murda Muzik" chapter has began. Sometimes when rappers have a million and one guest apperances on one album it messes with the album's chemistry. Mobb Deep doesn't do it this time. From the always present Big Noyd, Nas and Raekweon, comes Kool G. Rap, Lil Kim, Lil Cease and Eightball, yes Eightball. No one, I repeat no one disappoints, Kool G. Rap sounds like he got a "Symphony Part 1" flashback and delivers like Fed-Ex with his verse on "The Realist". The best track on the album, however is the current single with Nas "It's Mine". The "Scarface" theme is all over this one but it doesn't take away from "Queensbridge's Finest". Havoc always comes with the tight production, and Prodigy always has a story to tell, I'm a liitle upset that the "3 From N.Y.C." song was left of the album, but I'll get over it.

Back in the mid-late 90's, Mobb Deep was dropping heat after heated albums. I remember back in late '99, I first heard of Mobb Deep on "Quiet Storm (Remix)" that featured Lil' Kim. Back then, Mobb Deep was pushing their music towards the mainstream with their street singles, along with the origonal version of "Quiet Storm", and "It's Mine" with features Nas. As you can tell, Mobb Deep was changing with hip hop music back in '99, as an answer to the southern popularity with their QB style that everybody who was on the east at the time enjoyed doing (ie rocking Tims, driving SUV's, etc.).

First and formost, if you're expecting something along the lines of The Infamous, be ready for a dissapointment when it comes to the lyrics. Yes, Havoc and Prodigy rhyme about the same things as they did four years before this album came out, but on this album one would believe that it was starting to be predictable. At the same time, the songs here are so well made, that they still sound good at times. "Streets Raised Me" featuring Big Noyd, would sound like something you heard before, but would work out. "Spread Love" would also fall into this category. The dark sounding "Thug Muzik" would feature The Infamous Mobb and singer Chinky is another, but at the same time they allow their extended family members to get their shine on a track.

The songs that are even better would be the ones when they break away from their gangsta topics. Havoc tells a funny song on "Let A Ho Be A Ho" (that voice mail is hilarious). The editorial reviewer thinks that they colab with Nas and Raekwon too much, but I find that to be a good thing (both artists colabed on the two previous albums as well).
