What's up The Reason, I'm back again with another Anniversary Thread. After "Life After Death, The Blueprint, Food and Liquor, STILLmatic and Hard Core" I bring another Hip Hop Classic. 17 years ago On 4/25/95, Mobb Deep followed up their lackluster debut album "Juvenile Hell" with a follow up for all ages. "The Infamous" was released on the heels of Classic New York albums like "36 Chambers, Ready To Die and ILLmatic" and a few others that help spearhead the East Coast Renaissance. The album actually sold very well for a hardcore east coast rap album at the time going Gold in 2 short months which was better than any East coast album during that time outside of "Ready To Die". The album was produced mostly by Havoc and Q-tip but additional production came from Scott Free and Matt Life. With Havoc's haunting production and Prodigy amazing flow and rhyme schemes. "The Infamous" is clearly one of the greatest rap albums of all time.
