On cue today is the new 6-track EP from the Mobb, Survival of the Fittest, which came about after their ESPN NBA Remix of the title track and throwback classic. Now it’s accompanied by some raw beats and rhymes on the handful of original tracks below. I went through it and was noddin’ my head throughout. Give it a listen below:
Bout time we see some visuals from the springtime release of The Infamous… and it is a good choice with the Mack Wilds collab “Low”. Boi-1da, Havoc, and SEVNTHOMAS produce the smooth jam that gets a story to follow up above.
50 enlists Prodigy, Styles P and Kidd Kidd for this new cut “Chase The Paper” off the upcoming album, Animal Ambition. It’s directed by Eif Rivera, with the album dropping June 3rd.
Nas’ Illmatic XX isn’t the only classic rap album commemorating 20 years this month. Mobb Deep changed the game as well in ’95 with The Infamous and their new double album The Infamous Mobb Deep hit stores on April 1st. With the 20th anniversary technically coming up this April 25th, the duo sat down with the homie GY312 to reflect on the 20 years that has past.
Prodigy and Havoc not only talk about the inspiration for the 20th anniversary new album and tour, but also some Snoop and ‘Pac, staying hungry, and how music becomes timeless. Their perspectives were interesting to hear towards the end of this installment of In The Groove, with a quick cameo from 50 Cent closing out the video for good. Stay tuned all the way through to the end, and then tune in for a new Mobb Deep track that hit the web tonight..! “The Outcome”, off DJ Whoo Kid and DJ S.Whit’s upcoming mixtape The Elevation 2 dropping April 19th.
Perhaps a nod to Barney Stinson? Here’s a standout collab off the upcoming The Infamous Mobb Deep LP due out at the top of the month.
