Genre:Hip Hop
When it comes to authentic, ride-or-die hip-hop, few crews have as much resonance as Mobb Deep. Featuring two double-threat MCs who alsoproduced – Havoc and the sadly-departed Prodigy – the crew changed the hardcore rap game in 1995 with their sophomore classic The Infamous,and went on to rule the dark corners of hip-hop for the second half of the 90s and well into the 2000s.After multiple Mobb Deep platters in the ‘90s, Prodigy entered the 2000s as a solo artist with force, rolling over a stomping, piano-freaked backdroplaced by producer The Alchemist, with “Keep It Thoro.” It has held up over time, proving itself as an anthemic classic that the streets and clubs still respect.Flaunting a smooth-but-menacing flow, Prodigy’s no-nonsense lyricism on “Keep It Thoro” is prototypical modern age brag rap. Countless MCshave followed his flow, from Fabolous to Joey Bada$$. The song is short and sweet, clocking in at just over 3 minutes. There are no wasted verses,just hardcore rhymes that stay with you.But “Thoro” was the tip of the iceberg on what proved to be one of themore coveted rap full-lengths of the era. The album boasted othercharting singles, including “Rock Dat Shit” and “Y.B.E.” (featuring B.G.),but it can be argued that the album’s real gems are buried deeper.“Genesis,” “What U Rep” (featuring Noreaga) and “Three” are all sinisteryet pensive. “Wanna Be Thugs” and “Delt With The Bullshit” are strongand evocative Mobb Deep cuts, featuring production and vocals by Havoc.And alongside other standouts, perhaps the deepest cut of all – especiallyin light of Prodigy’s recent and way-too-soon passing due to complicationsfrom Sickle Cell Anemia – is “You Can Never Feel My Pain,” whichdetails the health issues and challenges this talented MC and producer hadbeen facing his whole life.H.N.I.C. was Prodigy’s first solo album, but it is perhaps his best. Amongfans he will never be forgotten, for his skills, his storytelling and hisno-B.S. approach to the art of MCing.

I break bread, ribs / Hundred dollar bills / Peel on Ducatis / And other four wheels Those first four lines, backed by that ridiculously ill beat, slugged you in the sternum when you heard them, fifteen years ago. And they still cause involuntary, heavy head-nodding episodes to this day. When it comes to authentic, ride-or-die hip-hop from the latter days of rap’s Golden Age, few crews have as much modern resonance as Mobb Deep. Featuring two double-threat MCs who also produced – Havoc and Prodigy – the crew changed the hardcore rap game in 1995 with their sophomore classic The Infamous, and went on to rule the dark corners of hip-hop’s over- and underground for the second half of the 90s and well into the 2000s. With a stomping, piano-freaked backdrop laced by producer The Alchemist, Prodigy entered the 2000s with force as he debuted solo on “Keep It Thoro.” It was the first single off his H.N.I.C. album, and it proved to be an anthemic classic that the streets and clubs respect to this day. Flaunting a smooth-but-menacing flow, Prodigy’s no nonsense lyricism on “Keep It Thoro” is prototypical modern age brag rap. Countless MCs have followed his flow, from Fabolous to Joey Bada$$. And beyond the influence he knew would follow in the song’s wake, he even astutely brags about his flaunting of conventional song structure: Bang this / Cause I guarantee you bought it / Heavy airplay, all day / With no chorus “Keep It Thoro” is short and sweet, clocking in at just over 3 minutes. There are no wasted verses, there is no wasted time. Just hardcore rhymes that stay with you, all these years later.
