ESPN and Hip-Hop go together and the relationship don’t stop. Word to Stuart Scott – RIP respect. A while back the sports network played Mobb Deep’s “Survival of the Fittest” as a backing to baseball clips during wildcard games (hit the jump for a sample). Well, turnabouts is part of the game. Here goes the Mobb dropping an ESPN Remix to their “Survival of the Fittest” on us.
“…Smack a high note out a n!gga, till he sounding like Michel’le…”
– Sheek Louch
Baaahahaaa! DAMN! Sheek beasting out some freestyle rhyming – on some silver back gorilla sh!t – over two classic Golden Era Hip-Hop beats – “The Realest” (by Mobb Deep) and “Dwyck” (by GangStarr featuring Nice N Smooth).
When Mobb Deep would say, “There’s a war going on outside, no man is safe from” … sh!t was real? Yes. And they stayed ready for ‘the realness.’ Hear about it from Hav and Prodigy themselves; and the respect they have for those who sampled them (as they considered doing so a compliment).
“The Infamous Mobb Deep” LP is out, off and running. And the promo videos continue to roll. This one is for “Low” (featuring Mack Wilds).
(Watch the whole vid-jo and hold up a ‘L’ … and that ‘L’ is not likely what you start out thinking it is … deep. Mobb Deep!)
It may seem like a dream but it’s real. Mobb Deep & The L.O.X. connect on some Queensbridge-Yonkers type ‘ish for this new video with the Biggie sample from his classic ‘Juicy’ record. It’s crazy to think it took this long for Prodigy, Havoc, Styles P, Sheek Louch, & Jadakiss to collaborate altogether in some way. Maybe it’s a start of good things to come in terms of crew collabos. For now peep the new video & cop the song off the latest Mobb Deep album ‘The Infamous Mobb Deep LP’ that’s out now.
Mack Wilds does the video for the “Henny” remix (featuring Mobb Deep, French Montana and Busta Rhymes) like it’s ’94… Craig Mack “Flava In Ya Ear” remix style. From the Puffy ‘Bad Boy, come out and play’ clink-clink on down. Modernized. Multiplied the eye candy factor by 5000! That part’s an improvement… visually… plus a dope remix!
Remember when the Mobb was on Hot 97 talking about that cut with Ghostface; that didn’t make the cut to get on “The Infamous” (interview here)? Yes. This it the one. Add Ghostface to the original emcee stew and … flavor! Listen to this alternate version of the Mobb classic “Eye For An Eye” (Your Beef Is Mines) that features Havoc and Prodigy rocking with Nas, Raekwon and Ghostface Killah. An “Eye For An Eye”… let’s get in this together, son.
Mobb Deep Stops By Hot 97 To Talk Old Beef, New Business, New Music And More With Peter Rosenberg (Video)
Mobb Deep on Real Late With Peter Rosenberg (show on Hot 97). Today, “The Infamous Mobb Deep” LP drops, commemorating the 20th anniversary of the completion of “The Infamous” – the Havoc’s and Prodigy’s classic LP (actually released Spring 1995). They discuss first things first – the beef between the two, Prodigy getting out of the clink and getting focused… then down to business: discussing the Mobb Deep brand, relations with friend and top tier beatmaker and connection-maker Alchemist, versions of the album they’re selling, unreleased tracks and more.
“The Infamous Mobb Deep” LP will be out before you know it. Actually, the release is set for April 1, 2014. Pre-order now at i-Tunes. Stream this leak now for FREE. This is Mobb Deep’s “Legendary” (featuring Bun B and Juicy J). Track by Boi-1da & The Maven Boys.
Brand new banger from two of my all-time favorite hardcore hip hop groups…. Brooklyn’s M.O.P. and Queensbridge’s finest Mobb Deep. This brand new single ‘Street Certified’ with Havoc & Prodigy will appear on Billy Danze & Lil Fame’s upcoming M.O.P. album, executive produced by DJ Premier, and to be released sometime in the near future. For now just bang this out at high volume! Fiyaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!!!
Havoc popped into the Power 105 NYC studios to pop off with The Breakfast Club morning show crew. Not really. Pretty laid back for the most part as you’d expect. But some wild moments in this interview. Watch! The Mobb Deep‘er spoke on his brief beef with partner Prodigy last year, his 20 years in the game, the upcoming Mobb Deep tour, and much more.
Producer, emcee, & 1/2 of the M.O.B.B. — Havoc drops a brand new video for one of the bangers from his latest album “13” that’s out now. Peep out the new video for “Eyes Open” featuring that Chi-Town lyricist Twista. Great looking visuals directed by Nick Brazinsky.
Prodigy and Alchemist Go ‘Back & Forth’ about ‘NY vs. LA’ While Reminsicing at the ‘Brisk Bodega’ (Video)
“I thought [Alchemist] was a Fed… I thought they sent the Feds to investigate us.” – Prodigy (of Mobb Deep)
…and that’s just how this crazy talk started. Nifty clip of Prodigy and Alchemist talking about New York versus LA living, their beginnings together and more. Brought to you by Brisk Bodega partnering with Noisey, Vice’s music channel.
