Best Mobb Deep Songs of All Time!

#10. Right Back at You ft. Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, and Big Noyd – One of my favorite “unorthodox instrumental’s” of all time! It sounds like some type of “organ grinder”, its a  very hard sound to describe. Ghostface and Raekwon are also featured on this track, and more “Wu associated” track’s” are always a good thing…

#9. Give Up the Goods (Just Step) ft. Big Noyd – The “beat” on this track is super smooth. It reminds me why I enjoy 80’s/90’s “minimalist” hip hop beats so much. 20 years ago rappers would pick “simple” beats to rap over to really showcase their lyrical mic skill. In comparison… Most “rappers” nowadays tend to pick more complex beats to “hide” their lyrical inadequacies from today’s gullible rap audience…

#8. Eye for a Eye (Your Beef is Mines) ft. Nas, and Raekwon – I’m not sure how a hip hop duo who had such “close” connections with Nas and the Wu-Tang Clan (Example: peep the title of this track…) would get “sh*tted” on so heavily by “rival” rappers with zero repercussions. How does that happen? Wu-Tang Clan and Nas are like “lyrical hitman’s”, so why did these Mobb Deep brotha’s get “played out” so much? The sh*t is baffling to me…

#7. Got it Twisted – Mobb Deep “purest” might dislike some of their later “commercial” work, but I don’t necessarily agree with that thought process. Mobb Deep in the 2000’s definitely weren’t their same “N.Y. Grimy” selves, but I never felt like they “sold out” or anything to that effect…

#6. Outta Control (Remix) ft. 50 Cent – Not sure if this song is technically a Mobb Deep or 50 Cent track. It appears on each of their albums so I felt like it was okay to place it this on this list… This song “possesses” a “classic” 2000’s instrumental that will forever be synonyms with the Mobb Deep catalog…

#5. Drop a Gem On ‘Em – This song was written back “in the days” when rappers would aspire to “flow fatal” on each and every track they would appear on. In 2017, the only “fatal flows” going on are in these  “rap boys” panties…SMH…

#4. Hell On Earth (Front Lines) – Grimy as hell! That’s really the only description you could give Mobb Deep’s third studio album. It wasn’t as “memorable” the second Mobb Deep album (The Infamous), but this album was still dope as hell (no pun intended)…

#3. Survival of the Fittest –  Mobb Deep’s “The Infamous” album was really a “defining” moment for the New York hip hop scene. Correct me if  I’m wrong (which I never am), but wasn’t Mobb Deep the ones that really got “gangsta rap music” popping in New York? Think about it, after “The Infamous” album  groups like M.O.P, Capone-N-Noreaga, The Lox’s, Ruff Ryders, started coming out of the “wood works”. It was either that or Snoop Dogg “crushing the buildings” that really made every rapper from New York “start carrying” in 95′...

#2. Quiet Storm (Remix) ft. Lil’ Kim – I go “back and forth” on whether I like the “original” version of this track or the “remix” version more. This time I decided to play it “safe”, and choose the “Lil’ Kim remix” version. I haven’t always been a “fan” of Lil’ Kim, but she helps aide this track with some “memorable bars” as well as offering a better sung “hook” in comparison to the “OG” version…

#1. Shook Ones, Pt. II – I want to make one thing very clear. There are “classic hip hop songs”, and then there are “CLASSIC HIP HOP SONGS!!!”. “Shook Ones, Pt. II” fits in that latter category. Arguably a “Top 10 all time” hip hop track. What else is there to say? It’s one of the most “essential” hip hop songs ever made!…
