Mobb Deep: The Start of Your Ending

I have been real busy lately with work and a much-needed vacation. When I heard that Prodigy from Mobb Deep had passed away, I was as shocked as the rest of the world. For a very long time, Prodigy was my favorite rapper. I had posters of the rapper and Mobb Deep on my wall when I was in high school. I bought every single Mobb Deep album and listened to it on a daily basis.

I bought every single Mobb Deep album and listened to it on a daily basis. “The Infamous” is still one of my favorite hip hop records with its portrayal of 90’s New York life. The album featured some of the most introspective and no-nonsense lyrics that showed that this duo was to be listened to.

Many hip-hop fans say that “Shook Ones Pt. II” is the best record from the album, but for me, it’s the opening track. “The Start of Your Ending” has a laid-back beat that definitely feels like New York. Havoc delivers one of his best verses on the song the Prodigy comes in and wrecks the track. Check it out.
