The 50 Greatest Hip-Hop Skits

6. Mobb Deep "[The Grave Prelude]" (1995)

Producer: N/A
Album: The Infamous
Label: Loud


Things get real bad in Queensbridge when Big Noyd gets "shot" one shitty, stormy night. The tension is heavy in this "prelude" with the urgent pleas of "don't fuckin' fall asleep" resonating loudly, suggesting that the Mobb might have been through this scenario before. All this commotion carries over to the song that follows, giving the already gloomy track a deeper sense of sadness.
