26. Big Noyd on Mobb Deep's "Give Up the Goods (Just Step)" (1995)
Album: The Infamous
Producer: Q-Tip, Mobb Deep
Rapper Noyd carried on his tradition of playing his position as the ultimate wild-card goon within the Mobb Deep crew, a position he'd previously established on Juvenile Hell, only this time he upped the ante to match the quality of the new and improved beats.
Offsetting the nonchalant delivery of Hav and P, Noyd's energetic outbursts are as exhilarating as they are unnerving, hinting at a volatile individual just waiting for some herb to try to test him. These two bars sum up his M.O. rather succinctly: "Composer of hardcore, a lyrical destructor/Don't make me buck ya, I'm a wild motherfucker!" Nuff said, thun.
