This show was 2nd in the global classics chart, 4th in the global underground hip hop chart, 5th in the global rap chart and 20th in the global hip hop chart.
So this is TAPE 2 of the Mobb Deep series. I might have a Tape 3 lined up soon. But this episode includes some HOT exclusives before the classic "Infamous" album was released during spring of 1995. Before known as Mobb Deep, Prodigy & Havoc were known as the Poetical Prophets until 1992/1993 ish. They released their first album Juvenile Hell during 1993. Around this time the Pre-Infamous demo's were created which you have heard in
Tape 1. Those who know during the early to mid 90s there was only 1 major Hip Hop outlet that would promote unsigned rappers and groups. The iconic DJ Stretch Armstrong & Bobbito Garcia weekly radio show on 98.9 FM WKCR New York paved the way for many Hip Hop stars incl. Mobb Deep. Stretch was always the first to put his hands on DEMO TAPES and so some early exclusives of "Shook Ones Part 1 & 2" can be heard way before it was released to the public. Enjoy, listen and share.
