Mobb Deep is an American hip hop duo from Queensbridge, Queens, New York, U.S., that consists of Havoc and Prodigy. The duo is “one of the most critically acclaimed hardcore East Coast Hip-Hop groups.” The group is best known for its dark, hardcore delivery as exemplified by the single “Shook Ones Pt. II.” Mobb Deep has become one of the most successful rap duos in hip hop, having sold over three million records.
Two of their albums have been critically acclaimed, The Infamous and Hell on Earth, both of which is considered to be classic among avid Hip-Hop listeners and general fans. They are partially credited for the resurgence of East Coast rap in the early to mid-1990s. The group briefly disbanded in 2012 after a feud broke out between its members, but that has since been resolved and they have reunited for a 20th anniversary tour and new self-titled album.
