One of the grimiest rap records of the '90s, The Infamous is an undisputed classic just as crucial as The Chronic and Illmatic. Though not their official debut (that would be 1993's decent if uneven Juvenile Hell), this is the album that really established the Mobb as pioneers of unadulterated New York thug-rap. The cinematic combination of Havoc's plodding, hypnotic beat work and Prodigy's ice-cold, menacing lyricism transports you to the harrowing hallways of Queensbridge Houses — the largest projects in the U.S. — where remorseless murder and blatant narcotics transactions were an everyday occurrence. Absolutely loaded with timeless songs, including standards like "Shook Ones, Pt. II," "Give Up The Goods (Just Step)," and "Trife Life," it also flaunts some great cameos from like-minded emcees such as Wu-Tang's Raekwon the Chef and fellow QB representatives Nas and Big Noyd. Released at a time when mainstream rap was dominated by the watery synths and low-rider imagery of California G-Funk, The Infamous plays like a sinister cousin from the East Coast; that mentally unstable dude who just got out of jail and is quietly plotting his next blood-drenched crime spree.
