Legendary (feat. Bun B and Juicy J)
We’re less than a week away from a Mobb Deep reunion album, as the “Legendary” rap duo prepare to bring things full circle with the release of The Infamous Mobb Deep. After touring together last year to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their debut project, Juvenile Hell, the pair took to the studio to record their first full studio album in nearly a decade. This one pays tribute to another hip-hop classic, The Infamous, and it’s separated into 2 discs: one full of 17 fresh new tunes, and one that includes 14 unreleased songs from their 1994 recording sessions.
“Legendary” happens to be one of those newer tracks, and features contributions from Bun B and Juicy J, legends in their own right respectively. The single is as triumphant as they come, as the two team up with Prodigy and Havoc to look back in retrospect on their careers and reflect on their successes over some supreme production supplied by Havoc, The Maven Boys, and Boi-1da. It’s a relatively simple track overall, but it comes packed with plenty of advice and lessons learned for the younger generation to follow.
Also be sure to check out Mobb Deep’s recent collaboration with TMN favorite Kaytranada below, which proves that the old heads aren’t afraid to give the young guys a chance to shine too. If you’re feeling both tracks, feel free to head over to iTunes to pre-order The Infamous Mobb Deep before it drops on April 1st.
