The legendary NY duo M.O.P. are back at it with the release of this new track “Street Certified” featuring Mobb Deep. Lil Fame and Bill Danze have not released an official album for a couple years now, but we now know that a M.O.P. project is in the works with this song being a likely inclusion. “Street Certified” sounds as gritty as you would expect from the likes of these four veteran emcees, and it is safe to say that this record has that classic New York boom-bap feel to it. Being so far along in their respective careers, it’s good to see a collaboration between these groups who are an integral part in the foundation of New York hip-hop.

“Street Certified” showcases a nice contrast of M.O.P’s more forceful/in-your face deliveries and the smooth yet equally vicious flows of Mobb Deep. The organs and syncopated percussion featured in the production of the song allows each emcee to feature their atypical violently street-themed lyrics. So although we did not have a release date or title for M.O.P.’s next project, “Street Certified” should be a solid representation of what the album will sound like.
