This classic joint from one of the most consistent rap duos of all-time Mobb Deep, from their 3rd album Hell On Earth (1996) titled G.O.D. Part III, which showcased Prodigy’s lyrical gymnastics along with Havoc’s trademark dark production style.
This was one of many classic albums that came out in 1996, during hip-hop’s most popular era. Not many albums age too well after 20+ years but this song as well as the album does just that.
The track sample comes from the very ending of the movie Scarface, just in case you’re wondering. Dark and gritty and also a lyrical duo, Prodigy and Havoc dropped a hood classic on us with this one.
