Mobb Deep - Infamous (Music On Vinyl)
|Availability:||OUT OF STOCK|
|Status:||SIGN UP FOR RESTOCK NOTICE|
The Infamous is the sophomore album by hip-hop icons Mobb Deep, originally released in 1995. The album features guest appearances from Nas and Wu-Tang Clan members, Reakwon and Ghostface Killah. It marked Mobb Deep's transition from a relatively unknown Rap duo to an influential and commercially successful one.
One of the cornerstones of the New York hardcore movement, The Infamous is Mobb Deep's masterpiece, a relentlessly bleak song cycle that's been hailed by hardcore rap fans as one of the most realistic gangsta albums ever recorded.
This is hard, underground hip-hop that demands to be met on its own terms, with few melodic hooks to draw the listener in. Similarly, there's little pleasure or relief offered in the picture of the streets Mobb Deep paint here. They inhabit a war zone where crime and paranoia hang constantly in the air.
Heavyweight audiophile double vinyl produced by Music On Vinyl in 2015. This edition not only features the original album artwork, it also includes the bonus track "Up North Trip". UK Import.
