Product Details


Amongst Mobb Deep's younger fans, many probably wonder who Big Noyd is and why when Prodigy and Havoc are around, he's never far behind. They likely weren't around in the mid-1990s, when Noyd had electrified audiences with his scene-stealing performance on Mobb Deep's single "Give Up the Goods" from their landmark The Infamous LP. That helped build the buzz for his debut album Episodes of a Hustla. Released on Tommy Boy Records in 1996, the album is produced exclusively by Havoc and features four guest appearances by Prodigy. Considered one of the classic examples of the Queensbridge style epitomized by artists like Tragedy, Cormega and Mobb Deep themselves, Episodes of a Hustla features dark, haunting beats and vivid lyrical depictions of life in the projects of New York City during the Guiliani Era. Stand-out tracks include "Recognize & Realize (Part I)," "It's on You" and "Usual Suspect." Traffic Entertainment is proud to present Big Noyd's Episodes of a Hustla in a new digipak edition.

Comment: not true a$; 2 are skits, one is a musical intro. Episodes of a Hustla, while short, is such a classic. the Stretch remix of Usual Suspect and All Pro are two of the greatest QB jams ever. wish they added extras to this reissue but regardless, a classic

Comment: This was dope and slept on back in the day , just not my style these days . But for the new kids maybe something to bring you back to the grimy 90's era that you young kids need to catch up on and do your research .

Comment: Man, I remember this album droppin', I was a senior in High School. Havoc's shit was just so raw compared to everything else out, it's hard for me to describe. It's eerie, but not like RZA's shit around that time. If I had to describe it to someone I guess I would say RZA with a 40 cal stainless.

Comment: Lack of bonus tracks. I love Traffic but for me, if there's no bonus tracks then there's no point buying if you have the original.

Comment: The only quality album noyd ever put out. This was when havoc was on fire. With a mere 9 tracks, (2 re-mixed) it breaks down to seven. However it's still worth the purchase.
