It's great to hear that one of New York's illest vets is back home after finishing his three year bid. Hopefully this will result in new music from the man, both with Havoc and whatever solo projects he's interested in doing. In honor of the ocassion I put together a gang of my favorite Mobb Deep non-album tracks from 1993-1998, featuring both collaborations with other artists, soundtrack cuts and white label joints. The majority of these bangers are Havoc productions which of course guarantees quality stuff as far as the sonics goes and this tape is filled to the limits with incredible Prodigy verses. There's been a real lack of updates on this blog lately I know, but hold your eyes on this spot and I'll try put some more time into it.
