This is a great testament to the longevity of Mobb Deep as they use a remix of thier classic song for the NBA and to make a great EP around it. Havoc and Prodigy both do good work on here to create a good EP.
The production is excellent and speaks right to the core audiance of Mobb Deep. Each track is individual with a big case for being either a future, and in one case currant, classic. They may want to try something a bit further out of thier wheelhouse so that they dont get stuck in a rutt. However if what they are doing is working, dont change it.
The lyricism is good and helps keep that classic Mobb Deep sheen over the project. While it is not the best lyrical performance in the rap game, the delivery adds impact and they aren’t slouches. It is true that a few more complex rhymes could show that they are still growing as a group but they have lasted a long time doing this and clearly know what they are doing.
Overall, this is a good EP that helps to show that Mobb Deep still have the skills to not only be in Hip Hop, but to be solid and still be able to make songs that everyone can enjoy.
