Summary: Another Banger
Comment: Another Alchemist banger with Mobb Deep spit. Prodigy is not as sharp as he used to be, but he still keeps it ‘Thoro'.

Summary: Fly Zone
Comment: Al is dope with that bass snare pattern he frequently rocks. Sample is tight - you don't always need mad variation in it - especially in this case. The 2 2-bar samples do their job to make you zone in a fly state of mind. As far a mobb, what up dun-dun!?

Summary: Bangin' Beat, Clean And Simple
Comment: 'Stamp, I can't front on your analysis, but I gotta say that Al hooked up a winner musically. Yes, the context/application is a little confused, but I just think it's the Infamous, dun-dun slanguage that's interfering with the beat. The Lyrics might as well have been for a "Keep It Thorough, pt.2" because that's all words add up to, but the beat is nice. Al ought to chop more, but he's got the straight jack style. That and the wet reverb a la Ensoniq. Buy this for the beat. It would have been better for a summer release.

Summary: Mobb Classic
Comment: I'm feelin' the different kinda beat. Not so depressing like their other beats but I'm surprised they could make an uptempo banger.

Summary: Hardcore
Comment: I can't believe some of the reviews for this track. Lyrics are hardcore, beat is sick, absolutely nothing soft about it. "Fallen off"? Mobb Deep crew has been putting out the dopest sh*t on the low...check all those mixtape style albums....1st Infantry, etc.

Summary: Dope....
Comment: Man, ya'll are some picky mofo's. This song dope no matter how you look at it. They haven't "fallen off" because they choose to do somehing different. Alchemist shows his versatility with this beat. And don't give me that "it's just a loop". Some things aren't meant to be chopped. If it sounds dope, leave it as is.

Summary: Alchemist
Comment: That damn beat is hot, I mean Alchemist is the new generation for the producers, but I'm not feeling Mobb Deep's lyrics at all, I like Lloyd Banks (G-Unit)version better when he jacked the beat.

Summary: Something Alittle Different From The Mobb
Comment: Yo I was feelin' this but I must admit the Mobb has been comin off a little soft lately.

Name: HIPHOPEXPERT (Posted: 10/25/2003 9:11:00 PM)
Summary: Black Soul Music
Comment: Havoc is better lyrically on this track than I've ever heard him. This beat could be considered "2 legit 2 quit" in some rap circles, with the great cheesy 80's soul music vibe perfected by Doom now being used by ghetto professionals like the Alchemist and Fatboy Slim. Prodigy again shows his ability to rap on beat and stay on topic which is something most emcee's have trouble doing. Great track!

Summary: Like The Beat, Not For Mobb Deep
Comment: Just like the title of the track, Mobb Deep went backwards in trying to make this work. I guess it'll take time to get used to it. They've been doing some weird tracks lately, maybe this is something we should start to expect from them- that's just me though. Love the BEAT!

Summary: Dope Beat, Wrong Artists
Comment: I love Mobb Deep, but this beat is not for them. The beat is dope, I just wish alc should have sold it to an artist who would've done it justice.

Comment: Hmm, well I don't quite know what to say about this track. I guess I'm so indoctrinated in their old style a la "Shook Ones Pt. 2" that this surprises me like a last call shot of tequila. It seems like the Mobb have lost that dirty dark steez on the mic that made them so likeable. Damn, we all know that Al forgets to chop his samples sometimes but this is getting retarded. I know that the combination (Al and Mobb) has been mildly successful in the past but sh*t is too happy-go-lucky for me. This crew is definitely moving “Backwards."

Summary: Nice Feel Good Track
Comment: Heard this in a club early one night. The DJ played the instrumental for a few mixing some R&B acapella tracks over it then played the song. This is a definite head nodder, get a drink, feel good type of tune. The lyrics don't stand out, but the beat cruises along and doesn't get boring. It is what it is.

Summary: Its Cool
Comment: Nice tune but doesn't sound like a Mobb track, then again, I don't know what to expect from them these days.

Summary: Nothing Too Exciting About This One
Comment: The sample is definitely not something that I would expect from Mobb Deep. The beat and lyrics were not exciting and fail to keep you interested. This will not be one of Mobb Deep's blow-up joints, that's for sure.

Summary: Allright
Comment: Plods along and doesn't really cause great offence, but have Mobb deep fell off or what?
