Mobb Deep’s honorary classic debut, The Infamous, turned 20-years-old last month and while the bone-chilling “Shook Ones Pt. II” has hogged all the credit these past two decades, there are plenty of other unforgettable records on the album.

NBA Countdown–co-hosted by unflinching Hip-Hop fan Jalen Rose–recognizes this and they have recruited The Mobb to remix song #3 in “Survival of the Fittest” for the upcoming 2015 NBA Western Conference Finals.

Reports ESPN:

Legendary hip-hop group Mobb Deep and ESPN have teamed up to create a special production open for NBA Countdown – ESPN’s NBA pre-game studio show – to debut during pre-game coverage of the 2015 NBA Western Conference Finals, exclusively on ESPN. Mobb Deep will lend a customized NBA remix of their classic track Survival Of The Fittest (1995) to NBA Countdown.

Mobb Deep:

“It is absolutely incredible that, on the 20th Anniversary of the recording of Survival Of The Fittest, the meaning of the song is as relevant as ever” says Prodigy. “We would like to thank ESPN for choosing our record and for making it the anthem of one of the most important U.S. sports events of the year” adds Havoc. “We were absolutely excited to deliver a remix version of this classic and a visual to accompany the opening of NBA Countdown.”

“When worst come to worst, my people’s come first.” Truer words have never been spoken Havoc. Get a dose of nostalgia with the “Survival of the Fittest” video down below and keep an eye out for that remix.
