From Rap Dictionary
A revered rap duo from the Queensbridge Housing Projects in Queens, New York City. Comprised of Havoc (Kejuan Muchita) and Prodigy (Albert Johnson), Mobb Deep has been influential in molding East Coast gangsta music by popularizing dark, cinematic soundscapes to complement their gritty "reality rap" lyrics. This was the result of their classic sophomore release, The Infamous, produced by Havoc with a little help from Q-Tip from A Tribe Called Quest. They have had beef with 2Pac, Jay-Z, and fellow Queens rapper Nas. Recently, Mobb Deep have been signed to 50 Cent's G-Unit Records and featured on the recent hit single "Outta Control (Remix)".
