The legendary Queens duo of Mobb Deep have gone through a lot of ups and downs the past few years. While Prodigy and Havoc have not seen eye-to-eye about certain things, they have since reconciled their differences as they are coming together to a release a new album titled The Infamous Mobb Deep. The project is being highly anticipated as it will be a follow-up of sorts to Mobb Deep’s classic debut album The Infamous, and luckily enough it will include unreleased songs/verses that were recorded in the mid-1990’s. This is amazing news for Mobb Deep diehards and the group has released this single “Taking You Off Here” to get things started. While it has been inevitable for Havoc and Prodigy to show their age on the mic, the song is hard-hitting compromising of that signature raw, gully sound that Mobb Deep has been known for the past 20 years. 

“Taking You Off Here” showcases Mobb Deep as threatening enforcers on the mic consisting of classic NY lyrical trash-talking. The guitar and organ featured on the song’s production creates a psych-rock sounding backdrop for Havoc and Prodigy to welcome themselves back as Mobb Deep. Nevertheless, this is certainly a thoroughbred hip-hip record and should be a strong representation of the upcoming The Infamous Mobb Deep album. And although it is hard not to merely focus on the unreleased gems from the “golden era” that will be unveiled on the project, “Taking You Off Here” proves that Mobb Deep are still capable of kicking street rhymes over gritty production.
