Mobb Deep, The Infamous (1995)
Label: Loud, RCA, BMG Records
The Infamous craved out a unique and unmistakable sound. Dark, moody, brooding, and sinister, the music was apocalyptic and Havoc and Prodigy's unyielding and unremorseful lyrics painted a very bleak picture of what life was like growing up in Queensbridge. What made it even crazier was that either one for old enough to drink at the time.
