22 Years Of… The Infamous (1995)
22 years ago a duo from Queensbridges House, New York made a iconic sophomore album that would take the game by storm, single by single. Mobb Deep originally debuted in 1993 with their studio debut album, Juvenile Hell. The album met some minor success as the duo of Prodigy and Havoc came out in 1995 with something much harder. Produced by Mobb Deep, Q-Tip, Matt Life and Schott Free, the duo from Queensbridge signed with Loud Records in 1993, hoping to follow the success the label found in the Wu-Tang Clans studio debut album, “Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) they put heavy focus in recording the album from 1994 to 1995. Q-Tip along with Matt Life and Schott Free created beats with Mobb Deep that generated a more raw, gritty and grimy sound, similar to that of “Enter The Wu-Tang.” The album’s biggest song had to be “Shook Ones Pt II” which became the duo’s most iconic single to date. The album was certified gold by the RIAA in 1995, the very same year of it;s infamous release. Salute to Mobb Deep for their impact in Rap and Hip-Hop.
