These are some known and some unknown photos of the rap group “Mobb Deep” from Quennsbridge / New York City. These pictures are from the mid nineties. The group is best known for its dark, hardcore delivery, as exemplified by the single “Shook Ones Pt. II”. In 1986, they began rapping together. Almost 10 years after they came to success. Their music has much influence on the former generation, which is identified today with her life.
For my part, they were both more than just gifted musicians. They were always ahead of their time and groundbreaking for me and my musical horizon. To this day I associate their music with a strong sense of youthful escape from normality.
