OK So im in generous mode, I thought i'd share some of deeze jewels ive gathered up. Some of this stuff is rarer than the songs on J Love's "Mobb Misses" series, I havent included any songs availible on "Mobb Misses1-4", as you can get hold of the Mobb misses mixtapes alot easier.
These first tracks are after Juvenile Hell, but before The Infamous. They are bascially Mobb going into that new sound transistion away from Juvenile Hell. I have never heard these come up before not even on mobb misses or in the big Rare mobb thread that used to be on sohh.com, but a cool nigga just re found them for me (credit tutti) I think this was the Demo Mobb used with Q Tip to shop their new style to Loud after the failure of Juvenile Hell. I know aswell Bobitto from th radio show used this demo to push onto A&R's to get Mobb going again.
Mobb Deep - Keepin It Real
"I open my eyes to the streets where i was raised as a man/and learned to use my hands for protection in scuffles/throw all my blows in doubles/im coming from queens MF carrying guns in doubles" - first time he used this verse
Mobb Deep - Lifestyles of The Infamous
hard shit. It was probably an off cut from The Infamous, or just a practise track to get that rugged sound "im a classic/approach my level and get ya ass kicked/have you floatin in the river with your body wrapped in plastic"
Mobb Deep - Light Em Up
nice old school NY beat, i dont think Mobb produced this though, its more like Juvenile Hell style beat, but Infamous style rap
Mobb Deep - Survival of The Fittest (Original)
Mobb Deep f Big Noyd - If It's Alright
Mobb Deep ft Big Noyd - The Bridge 94
Mobb Deep ft General Germ - Up North Trip (Original)
Mobb Deep ft Twin Gambino - Hectic

Temperatures Rising (original version, and much better, even though LP version was also dope)
Give Up The Goods (OG version, from a demo)
This next one is a REAL early song from Mobb, even before Juevile Hell came out, its so old you cant even tell its their voices if you didnt know it was them first of all. Is called Flavor For The Non Believers.
Another alternate version of Temperatures Rising, again, real fuckin nice! All 3 versions of this song are classic to me.
Saga. I figured the Wu headz would feel this track , its not as rare as the rest, but its hot, so fuckit. Sounds like a Wu producer did this, and P really goes in.
