DJ Cruze Reviews: Mobb Deep “The Infamous Mobb Deep”

April 9th, 2014 | By

The INfamous Mobb Deep

One week after it’s release, Mobb Deep’s eighth studio album “The Infamous Mobb Deep” only received a little over 7,000 units sold and a ton of criticism.  Said to be “just business; no fun and games here,” by HipHopDX, the first thing DJ Cruze noticed is that the album was quite lengthy.  DJ Cruze investigates whether Mobb Deep got right to the point with their latest releases or simply produced a ton of fluff in their eight-year hiatus.


First and foremost, granted it’s been almost 20 years since their last album release, DJ Cruze suggests this is the album to cop, especially if you’re big on New York Hip Hop!  Given Prodigy’s arrest may have led to the stall in music production, Mobb Deep seems to have certainly returned with a vengeance.  DJ Cruze says, “Mobb Deep is giving their fans ‘The Best of Mobb Deep’ on this album.  The 46 tracks feature collaborations with legendary industry artists such as Snoop Lion, Bun B and Juicy J.


What DJ Cruze enjoyed:

“These guys still have it,” says DJ Cruze!  From their rhymes, to their beats, to their story telling, DJ Cruze believes this album is “on point.”  He continues, “listening to The Infamous Mobb Deep makes me feel as if Mobb Deep never left the music scene.  Prodigy and Havoc rap as if they are young artists in the game; obviously being older now with more experience, they simply give us a fresh perspective towards their artistry.”  Their maturity and perfected style blends with the modern beats to give a current feel to the seasoned artist’s.


What DJ Cruze didn’t enjoy:

Not only are there a ton of tracks on this release, many are songs that you may have already heard.  To DJ Cruze, some of these tracks didn’t belong on the album and some simply sounded similar to earlier recordings.  “We see why some of the tracks were unreleased prior,” says DJ Cruze after learning some of the songs on the new album were developed years before.  This begs us to question why Mobb Deep decided to release the tracks as of late rather than in their earlier years… were they not good enough to make the cut or were they just plain old horrible representations of the artist’s range.


Overall:

DJ Cruze believes that this was a great opportunity for Mobb Deep to take a step back into the music industry and remind us all of the lyricists they once were and still continue to be.  Perhaps, there is another project looming and this release was to fund it.


Cop it because the album is going to give you a mix of “everything;” from new songs with current artists to classic songs that we all enjoy (Shook Ones, Part 2).

Gear up for the tour; Mobb Deep began performing these songs across the U.S. back in January, and will continue through May 2014.  Prepare yourself for an overtake; this rap duo is on the course to remain relevant and competing with older, notorious groups releasing new material such as The Wu Tang Clan; however, the difference is (according to DJ Cruze) as a small group, Mobb Deep will experience less politics surrounding this album compared to Wu Tang.  Mobb Deep will, guaranteed, get radio play, and although this CD isn’t the best, DJ Cruze says “it does have a few tunes that will stay around for a while.”

Although, the original Illmatic was birthed on April 19th, this release hits the shelves just days before Nas’ anniversary and official introduction to the music scene.  Planning to expand on this triumph, Nas has announced that he will also release a full-length documentary to accompany the album, titled “Time is Illmatic.”

On April 15th, we’ll have the full review by DJ Cruze, but until then enjoy “I’m a Villian,” released by Nas this morning from the upcoming Illmatic XX.


The two-disk release will feature remastered projects from Illmatic in addition to Demos, remixes, freestyles and more from the artist.

Preorders of Illmatic XX are now live on iTunes!
