Just wondering your thoughts on this one,they've transformed from one of the most grimy hip hop acts to glistening commercial g u not bullshit.
What the fuck happened? How did prodigy's rhymes become so poor and where are Havoc's grimy Mobb beats? I understand that groups change up their style to suit the times but from Infamy to Blood Money its bin horrible from the Mobb,
what yall reckon

Havoc's rapping is still good, but Prodigy has really fallen off; pretty much after Jay-Z destroyed him on Takeover

Robert

I think its 2 reasons, they arent hungry no more and they are too cocky. They arent hungry to be the best and show that the mobb deep fam is the best and they always say their albums are great and if u dont agree u either arent a true fan, arent real or are hating. If they still had quality they wud sell more. thats the fact. Since Murda Muzik its all been downhill, i just hope they put more heart in their work after this flop.

Why did Mobb Deep Fall off?

Because they wanted to put a nice expansion on their homes and slap some big fuckin rims on their benzs. Apparently the quickest way they could do this was to hop on the g-unit mobile, aka 50cents cock, and now they're riding it till their asses get sore, which will be a long fucking time seeing as how mobb deep has taken to fudge packing so well. Not very easy to make good music with 50cents dick up your ass, just ask the boys in mobb deep, they know.

SELL OUTS

ay look, mobb deep is money right now. do you seriously think anything other than that means anyrthing to them right now? i still love old grimey mobb deep, but fuck new mobb deep (no homo). but that doesn't mean anything to mean, as long as old mobb still exist than what is there to bitch about. the most difficult aspect of mobbs transformation to absorb is the fact that it's so easy to understand, end of discussion. They wanted money.

About covers my view of them. Shame - 'The Infamous' is one of my favourite albums of all time.

yo i feel ya'll....i've lost interest in mobb deep. I dont like their new stuff and i still haven't heard Blood Money but a few tracks i've heard off it dont sound impressive at all. I mean i was just listening to Mobb Misses Mixtape hosted by J-love and the music on their is sickening. Its so sickening that compared to their new shit, they fell the fuck off. I mean they fell off harder than wu-tang did with their music. I mean i understand they wanna get their dues but damn, they stopped being MC's for a while now and P hasn't been the same since Jay-Z exposed his ass. Americaz Nightmare had me thinkin they was getting back in the grind. But ever since their move to GUnit, i knew they was gonna suck 50's dick. You can tell by their music. Nothing they put out of that GUnit camp sounds impressive save a couple tracks from mixtapes. But these niggaz dont sound the same at all. Even their lead single Put Em IN They Place dont sound impressive. The beat is kinda grimy but i know they get guttier than that. I dunno...i've just lost interest in them, but i will always continue to listen to their older stuff.

"Sellout" gets tossed around all the time, but there are two groups who truly fit the term, Black Eyed Peas and Mobb Deep. Sold the fuck out to commercialism.

Prodigy is a phenomenon. It's a great mystery how he fell so hard. and this was way befor G-unit. His last respectable verse was on QB's Finest. I can only think of 2 possible explanations for his extreme wackness now

1) He sniffed so much coke and took whatever other drugs that his brain is literally fried, so he cant come up with the energetic rhymes and crisp flow he had in the 90's

2)He had a ghostwriter back then

About P,i dont think it was a ghostwriter i think it got something to do wit his other problems such as the beef wit NaS and Jigga and that fact he got sickle cell,dont no about the drug thing..

It aint the sickle cell. I remember Cormega talkin about P and said back in the day he would come right out the hospital and still go the studio and make bangers. He said he dont even know why he fell off so hard

You know raw hip hop don sell no mo.I guess ice and booty blinded them cats.I agree they sold out big time ,hell on earth to rhymin wit 50 in a club fuc the mobb.

Da Dishonourable Don
06-27-2006, 03:32 AM
the mobb wasn't making proper ends, so Prodigy started rappin more lazy with his fast food raps, maybe sickle cell has something to do with it, maybe not, but Havoc and Noyd still be rippin shit, truth be told, they fell off 'cause Havoc doesn't produce full albums, just like Rza don't produce full albums no more, the vintage styles fall off when you don't stick to the same formula.

CharlesJones

^^^^^

I agree with everything you said. When a rapper changes their style and don't stick to the same style, that's when they fall off. Mobb Deep fell off when they signed with G Unit. Only album i didn't like by them is Infamy. I'm not gonna even bother to listen to their new album.
