Mobb Deep On Being Hip-Hop's Greatest Duo, The Legacy Of Nate Dogg & More
Mobb Deep have long been one of the rap game's most cherished and eccentric teams, cementing their legacy with what is perhaps the strongest three album run in history. 20-plus years later, they're still rocking stages and compelling heads with their brooding deliveries and brilliant boom-bap styles, most recently captured at the Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival just a few weeks back. Today, the good folks at MONTREALITY have revealed a lengthy interview with Prodigy & Havoc, delving into the matters that hit hardest in the mind of the Golden Era enthusiast. Namely, their favorite cartoon characters, how they spent their first checks, the legacy of the late Nate Dogg, but most importantly, where they rank themselves on the lengthy list of hip-hop's two-man teams. Elsewhere in the interview you can hear the Queens-bred bombers chiming in on Eminem's use of "Shook Ones" at the conclusion of 8 Mile, 50 Cent's hold on the industry, what they were in a past life and the greatest lie ever told. You can watch Mobb Deep candidly speak on all these things and more in the clip below.
