When you talk about Hip Hop, it is extremely crucial that you discuss the pioneers of this shit: the people who were there when it became popular. Hip Hop began back in the late 70’s & 80’s, but didn’t see worldwide attention until the 90’s. This is the time when I grew up and I remember vividly all the music I used to listen to and how I would receive it. You see, it’s so much different now; today we stream everything and big albums are leaked intentionally because “that’s just how it goes.”
Back when I was coming up in the 90’s I remember Mobb Deep‘s music getting a lot of play by my father and I. There’s this one song that my friends and I used to kick it on the block and listen to blasting from boomboxes. At that time we were the youngings trying to get in cool with our older brothers and cousins who put us on most of the music.
Mobb Deep is back, and they’ve dropped a new album. The duo from Queensbridge have taken to Pandora to stream their latest album The Infamous Mobb Deep. Their previous release you ask? It came out 19 years ago! Some would say “This is real Hip Hop!” but honestly I’m not expecting it to sound the same. We live in a different time and I’m going to find it interesting to see what the duo brings to the current rap world. The beats are different, the way people attack the beat is different, and it’s just a new era of rap. Prodigy and Havoc grab a few guests for the project which include Snoop Dogg, Busta Rhymes, Juicy J, Bun B, Nas, and more.
Join me as we stream Mobb Deep’s new album The Infamous Mobb Deep via Pandora. The album is set to release on April 1.
