In the Groove with GY312: Mobb Deep

20 years of anything fresh is an astonishing accomplishment. 'Throw a TV at you crazy,' if you can say you dropped a critical, seminal LP that would help change the music landscape for your borough and the rest of the rap game for that matter. Don't front, of course you can't, dun!

Queensbridge scribes Prodigy and Havoc of Mobb Deep released The Infamous…Mobb Deep on April 25th, 1995 via Loud Records. To commemorate their classic release, they re-released The Infamous as a double LP last week, which finds itself at #10 this week on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip Hop Album list after an 8-year hiatus. The project that finds them re-working original gems with new music from a marquee line-up of usual suspects (Nas, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, Snoop Dogg, Busta Rhymes, The Alchemist, Lox, Juicy J, ) and new blood (Mack Wilds, French Montana, Illm!nd, Boi-1da and more).

The Shadow League music bro GY312 linked up with M-O-B-B for an exclusive interview at Red Bull Studios to discuss The Infamous, staying hungry, Snoop and Pac, and what goes into making a timeless record. 50 Cent also makes a great cameo at the end sharing words on his Queens brethren.
