Listen to the samples used in Mobb Deep’s seminal LP ‘The Infamous’

“I got you stuck off the realness, we be the infamous… You heard of us, official Queensbridge murderers…”

 

Hip hop fans the world over are still reeling from the news that one half of one of the toughest and most raw duos in rap history passed away yesterday.

Prodigy died at just 42 years of age. He was a life-long sufferer of sickle cell anemia, but the exact causes of death have yet to be determined.

Like us, you’re probably listening to Mobb Deep’s legendary album ‘The Infamous’, along with the rest of their discography, on repeat since the news broke.

We’ve dug up a video from 2016 that shows some of the samples used on the record that featured one of the greatest hip hop tracks ever, ‘Shook Ones Part II’. Watch it below.
