Looks like Fat Beats got it first.

Four LP vinyl set contains 10 unreleased songs from the recording sessions of group's classic platinum album The Infamous PLUS 4 additional tracks that did not appear on the CD version of the release!

The Infamous Mobb Deep is a double album that will consist of one disc of new, original music and another of unreleased tracks from the recording sessions from their second studio album, The Infamous (1995). The album has been in development since 2011, but after the duo toured to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their debut studio album during 2013 the recording process kicked into high gear. The album's production is handled by Havoc, Boi-1da, Illmind and The Alchemist among others.

One of the most prolific and original groups in hip hop, the infamous Mobb Deep are still a very active force in today’s music industry with twenty years of experience. The group has appeared on records that have sold over 40 million copies. Aiming from the Queensbridge neighborhood of NYC, the duo has been responsible for delivering some of the most popular and forever current anthems in rap music. Tracks like “Survival Of The Fittest’” “Shook Ones Part II” and “Quiet Storm RMX” have remained significant and still move crowds from NY to Tokyo. Mobb Deep’s ability to perfectly describe their gritty surroundings and lifestyle always made them a first choice for music writers and critics across the board. Mobb Deep have graduated to the role of cult group; today, they are followed by a new wave of cutting edge music listeners, as well as their original core foundation of hip hop aficionados.

I probably won't grab this (I'm not typically one to stop $ on boxed sets unless they're the opera & Springsteen boxed sets that I've picked up at thrift shops.), but I'd love to hear what's on here. I'm pretty much a sucker for anything prodigy and hav put out.


Not to be confused with Havoc and Prodeje


Also, if you haven't listened to the audiobook of Prodigy's memoir (My Infamous Life) yet, then you need to get on it. SO GOOD. Just listen to a podcast, get a code for a free audible book and cop that shiiiiiiit





I'm on that 16 loop, down in that Houston, baby
I'm on Atlantic Ave, Hip Hop Police hate me!

I bought the cd when it came out. Didn't think they were gonna drop it on vinyl. It is well worth the money. A couple of real gems among the unreleased ones. Don't think I'll be paying $40.00 on the vinyl though.
