Mobb Deep can comfortably boast their Hip-Hop royalty status. That said, MCs in their position rarely freestyle in the way young, hungry rappers often do, but that spirit was evoked last night on Hot 97’s The Funkmaster Flex Show.
The renowned DJ spun the instrumental version of Tyler, The Creator’s grizzly Goblin single, “Yonkers.” Within seconds, Prodigy began kicking verses that detail the grimy street action Mobb Deep fans love to hear.
The legendary M-O-B-B appeared on the show to promote The Infamous Mobb Deep LP, due in stores April 1. With songs like “Say Something” and “Taking You Off Here” comfortably embedded into the tracklist, it’s safe to say that the New York duo are bringing that raw, uncut rap back.
