Life of the Infamous: The Best of Mobb Deep album for sale by Mobb Deep was released Oct 31, 2006 on the Legacy label. One of New York's most commercially underrated and consistent groups to survive the 1990s, Mobb Deep have made a profound impact on the hip-hop world from both lyrical and production standpoints since the duo came on the scene with their aptly titled 1993 debut, JUVENILE HELL. Over the years, Havoc and Prodigy have perfected the "grimey style" introduced on their definitive 1995 LP THE INFAMOUS MOBB DEEP--a style that made crews like Dipset and G-Unit possible, and prompted many veteran groups to make adjustments.

Life of the Infamous: The Best of Mobb Deep songs A black pimp in Oakland decides that it's high time to clean up the streets, so he initiates a campaign of violence.

Mosley) and witty sidekick Slim (legendary comedian Richard Pryor), Mack is armed to clean up the streets. This action-packed crime caper also gives a searing yet fun look into urban street life.

Kiss of Death CD (2004)
Life of the Infamous: The Best of Mobb Deep buy CD music KISS OF DEATH balances street knowledge with humor, and serves up robust beats and guest shots by a legion of hip-hop luminaries. Jadakiss brings together both American coasts, as well as years of history, on the groovy, 1970s-tinged "Shine," with Cali's Snoop Dogg and NYC's DJ Quik packing some of their best rhymes. On the other end of the spectrum is the rock-sampling "Welcome to D-Block," featuring Jadakiss's former Lox bandmates and a relatively subdued Eminem. Of course, Jadakiss can unleash some serious rhymes on his own, especially on the hardcore title track and the melodic "Bring You Down." A dynamic sophomore effort, KISS OF DEATH cements Jadakiss's status as one of the premier forces in East Coast rap.
On his second solo record, KISS OF DEATH, Jadakiss begins the wistful, reflective song "Why" with the question, "Why is Jadakiss as hard as it gets?" Unwavering confidence contrasted by soft introspection is a trademark of the ex-Lox member, and this quality distinguishes the Yonkers, New York rapper from his peers.
Personnel: Jadakiss (rap vocals); Mariah Carey, Anthony Hamilton (vocals); DJ Quik, Eminem, Kanye West, Nate Dogg, Sheek, Snoop Dogg, Styles P (rap vocals).

Life of the Infamous: The Best of Mobb Deep CD music All songs written or co-written by A. Johnson and K. Muchita except "Just Step Prelude" (A. Johnson/T. Perry). Samples include "That's Alright With Me" (Ester Phillips), "Where There Is Love" (as performed by Patrice Rushen), "You Are My Starship" (as performed by Norman Connors) and "I Remember I Made You Cry" (as performed by The Headhunters).
Before their Loud/RCA debut THE INFAMOUS, Mobb Deep's Havoc and Prodigy were introduced to the hip-hop nation on 1993's JUVENILE HELL, portraying their own brand of the "Trife Life." Image and hardships aside, a lot has changed since then, particularly their music which has naturally matured as the pair have grown older, bolder and wiser.
THE INFAMOUS is a rugged ride through the truths and terrors of these two Big Apple outlaws, with cuts like "Right Back At You" and "Cradle To The Grave" stinging the minds of its listeners. This time around Mobb Deep play with the background tracks a little more, having self-produced virtually the entire album. The lead-off single, "Shook Ones Pt. II," blew up tremendously, first in the underground and then on the charts; its killer lyrics and hypnotizing beat pounded a warning into the heads of the masses to stay real. "Survival Of The Fittest" and "Up North Trip" both describe the hectic streets of New York as a war zone where the constant struggle is to stay alive. Mobb Deep join forces with two of rap's most intense lyricists, Nas and the Wu-Tang Clan's Raekwon, on "Eye For A Eye (Your Beef Is Mine)." Adding to the all-star cast, Q-Tip donates an abstract feel to a few tracks and makes his cameo appearance on "Drink Away The Pain (Situations)," a clever track dedicated to an unlikely first love.
Mobb Deep come correct throughout the album, once again proving that while rap may be just a music, hip-hop is a way of life. Score another point for the crews of Queensbridge, as THE INFAMOUS enters that 'hood's Hall Of Fame right next to Nas' ILLMATIC.
Mobb Deep's sophomore effort turned out to be a career-defining moment for the Queensbridge duo. Two years post-JUVENILE HELL, THE INFAMOUS saw Havoc and Prodigy turn considerably harder, spinning aggressive tales of paranoid crime drama and firmly establishing Loud Records as a label to be reckoned with. The Queensbridge housing projects as portrayed from the Mobb's late-teenage point of view is a violent maze populated by stick-up kids and fiends; a place where life is trife, liquor is poured out daily for dead comrades, police are the enemy, and childhood friends turn snitch. Havoc's no-frills East Coast production provides the perfect backdrop for the murky subject matter. Every song is a classic, packed with thug-life quotables which inspired dozens of subsequent street anthems and an array of imitators. Big Noyd, Nas, Q-Tip, Raekwon, and Ghostface Killah make up the guest-list.

Greatest Hits CD (2007) Top Seller
Life of the Infamous: The Best of Mobb Deep album for sale Considered by some to be the greatest MC of all time, the late Christopher Wallace had recorded just two solo LPs at the time of his death. Still, his mark on the genre has been indelible and his influence unending. Released to coincide with the 10th anniversary of his still-unsolved murder, GREATEST HITS mostly makes good on what its title promises.
Included in the 17-song tracklist are all the boom-box bangers that dominated the airwaves, MTV, and BET, and moved serious industry weight. From the infectious bounce of "Juicy" and the smoothed-out funk of "Big Poppa" to the fearsome gunplay of "Warning" and powerful lyrical precision of "Ten Crack Commandments," Big's talents and legacy are well-represented. Eminem, Busta Rhymes, Nelly, Ja Rule, Nate Dogg, and Ralph Tresvant are among the artists who take part in the posthumous studio collaborations rounding out GREATEST HITS.

Port of Miami CD (2006)
Life of the Infamous: The Best of Mobb Deep CD music In the hip-hop world Miami's gotten a bad rep--the city to produce Vanilla Ice and Luke not to mention the "Miami Bass" sound. Rick Ross is out to change that on his debut effort PORT OF MIAMI--a drug dealer's dream, chock full of cocaine-laced street tales that evoke the Miami of SCARFACE more than anything put out by the ex-Geto Boys rapper. With a slew of thumping beats from Jazzy Pha and Cool & Dre, as well as guest appearances from Li'l Wayne, Young Jeezy, and Jay-Z, PORT OF MIAMI makes a strong case for redeeming Ross's hometown.

Game Theory CD (2006) Top Seller
Life of the Infamous: The Best of Mobb Deep buy CD music Fans who were worried about how the crew's style would mesh with the Def Jam formula will be relieved from the gate, as the intro (an eerily ambient reworking of the Jay Dee-produced "Fantastic" intro) gives way to the upbeat, drum-driven "False Media." Equally relieving to longtime Roots fans is the return of Malik B whose aggressive delivery again provides balance to Black Thought's more measured cadence. On the whole, GAME THEORY contains heavier subject matter; the politics of the day pervade virtually every track, while the tone ranges from heated urgency ("Don't Feel Right" and "In The Music") to the uplifting and soulful ("Baby" and "Long Time") to sad introspection ("Atonement" and the bonus track tribute to the late Jay Dee). GAME THEORY is hip-hop with a message and shows us an angrier, more impassioned group of artists eager to tackle the issues confronting their community, yet still doing it with true bounce.
Despite what critics might have said about their two previous efforts, true hip-hop heads know that the Roots never fell off. On their seventh studio album, Philadelphia's favorite sons continue to elevate their signature sound that has for years appealed to rap purists and staggered the more critical listeners who love to lament the lack of musicianship in hip-hop.
The Roots: Black Thought (rap vocals); Captain Kirk Douglas (guitar); Kamal Gray (keyboards); Leonard Hubbard (bass guitar); ?uestlove (drums); Frank "Knuckles" Walker (percussion).
