Sprite Uncontainable is just around the conner, 3 sleeps away to be exact. Meaning that in no time fans will be able to watch Mobb Deep live on stage for the first time in South Africa, but until then lets refresh your memory on why these Queens Bridge natives are one of the most thorough rap duos in Hip Hop history.
The following track was featured on the duo’s much acclaimed debut LP ‘The Infamous’ and featured rapper Big Noyd. It was definitely one of the stand out joints on the album and the lyrics rapped by both emcees detail how to rob people of their belongings.
Q-Tip had a whole bunch of impressive production credits on ‘The Infamous’, but he definitely outdid himself on the production of this joint. It contains a smooth and soulful sample of Esther Phillips — That’s Alright With Me. If it sounds familiar to all you J. Cole fans that’s because he used the very same sample on his latest album 2014 Forest Hills Drive on the track St. Tropez.
