2Deep: Mobb Deep – Get Away (Video)

blame it on JES7 April 6, 2014

Technically speaking, this usually wouldn’t find itself under “2Deep” as it’s past the age threshold I’ve set, but it’s close enough. This track off the M-O-B-B’s 2001 Infamy is one of only a few tracks that were actually good (IMHO). As a matter of fact, I’d rate this one as my favorite off the LP, with “The Learning (Burn)” coming in a close second. Too bad Vita raps on the latter though.

Also, Hav? On the lyrical tip, he was way better than P during this time period. Actually, you could say the same for all of their newer material as well. Not to say that P didn’t get it in, but Hav seemed more focused, while P seemed too comfortable and nonchalant. Thoughts? Opinions?

    If you cut Infamy down to 12 tracks, it ain’t so bad. Not on the level of the first 3 albums, but still a solid 4 out of 5.

    gotta say tho – Nothing Like Home the best song on Infamy IMO… never could recognize P after Murda Muzik, Hav on the other hand definetley really stepped his game up..

    This track was nutz!!! Classic. That album was Weaksauce!

    Career wise, Prodigy flow and delivery stay waaayyy more impactful, seems more unique, artsy street shit like on some “Ill box cutter fight, where no one backs down” (P All day!!!). Hav always seem like he has to try to hard to be effective. In my opinion, the new album is cool. P definitely was taking the Lazy route but, he still got that grimy straight forward art shit. I always felt like Hav was a nice sidekick type and his beats created the sound for them. Prodigy went waaayyy harder on P=Mc2. He must be bored wit the M-O-B-B
