Mobb Deep: Give Up The Goods

Prodigy, one half of the legendary hip hop duo Mobb Deep, passed away today at just 42 years old. Known for their brooding, sometimes eerie sound, Mobb Deep is widely considered one of New York’s most influential hardcore rap groups. Their second album, the cinematic The Infamous (1995) delivered some of the group’s best-known tracks—perhaps most famously “Shook Ones II.” We’ve chosen to share “Give Up The Goods,” which was co-produced by Q-Tip and carries both grit and soul, as well as a crisp snare that radiates.
