Mobb Deep - Pre-Hell EP (1996)


This is a cool little bootleg of unreleased cuts from the Hell On Earth sessions (released in 2007). Of course they aren't mastered and don't have the full Mobb Deep depth to them, but the grittiness still does a lot for the peak-years duo on its own. Pretty lo-fi and kind of like an East coast counterpart to tha Dogg Pound bootleg I posted a few months ago. Worth a listen if you like The Infamous or Hell On Earth as well as other legendary East coast hip hop albums, which is everybody, so listen to this loc.
