Overview

Following the formula of fellow Queensbridge native Nas's 1996 platinum-plus IT WAS WRITTEN, Mobb Deep's fourth album, MURDA MUZIK, aims to be their breakthrough record. Coming off two gold albums (1995's THE INFAMOUS, 1996's HELL ON EARTH), Havoc and Prodigy infuse their latest urban street tales with more commercially accessible backing tracks, as evidenced by the riveting "Quiet Storm" (the remix features Lil' Kim) and the catchy "U.S.A. (Aiight Then)." While not every track works -- like the unfortunate female vocal hooks on "Streets Raised Me" and "Thug Muzik" -- Nas saves the day on the Brandy-and-Monica-inspired "It's Mine" where he belts: "Ya'll need to give it up/ We don't give a f*ck/ What ya'll niggas want?/ Thug life is mine." With MURDA MUZIK, Mobb Deep successfully deliver their brand of musical mayhem to the mainstream.
