Mobb Deep —
Infamy ... CD Loud/Violator, 2001. Used ...
Temporarily Out Of Stock
Mobb Deep steps into a new millennium with a slightly bigger sound, but without losing the plot! Long-heralded for being gritty and raw in the best kind of way, Prodigy & Havoc had nothing left to prove on that front – so taking a slight left turn with a more introspective lyrical bent and some sweeter soul backing vocals on the hook is anything but a crime against their legacy if you ask us, it actually deepens it –- especially with the rhymes still in their cornerstone style on a lot of the tracks. 16 tracks in all, including "Get Away", "Bounce", "Hey Luv (Anything)", "The Learning (Burn)", "Get At Me", "Clap", "Crawlin", "There I Go Again" wiht Ron Isley, "I Won't Fall" and more. CD
Cool compilation with a motherlode of hard funk and soul tracks, with loads of the kind of stuff that you'd love to find while you're out hunting funky 45's, but which never ever shows up! Cuts include "Shake" by Chet Poison Ivey, "Popcorn (part 2)" by Jimbo Johnson & The Violators, "Biscuits & Buttermilk" by Freddie & Henchie, "Mashed Potato Popcorn" by Freddie & The Kinfolk, "Yak-A-Poo" by Latimore Brown, "Humpin, Bumpin, & Thumpin" by Andre Williams, "Pop Popcorn Children" by Eldridge Holmes, "Kick Back" by Willie Tell and The Overtures – and lots lots more. 22 tracks in all – and the kind of stuff that we carry on the Sound Of Funk or Soul Patrol comps, and it doesn't ever lose its groove!
