Hell on Earth [Explicit Lyrics]

All Music Guide - Steve Huey
Mobb Deep became a street-level sensation with its second album, The Infamous, and the duo saw no reason to tamper with its signature style on the follow-up, Hell on Earth. The first words on the record announce "You know how we did on the Infamous album, right? All right, well, we gon' do it again," and that's exactly what they do. Hell on Earth refines the Mobb Deep formula, amplifying much of what made The Infamous a success. The bleak street narratives are even more violent and extreme, and the production is even grittier and creepier. It's still indebted to -- but more dramatic than -- the RZA's work with the Wu-Tang Clan: eerie strings and bits of piano, underpinned by...

Mobb Deep became a street-level sensation with its second album, The Infamous, and the duo saw no reason to tamper with its signature style on the follow-up, Hell on Earth. The first words on the record announce "You know how we did on the Infamous album, right? All right, well, we gon' do it again," and that's exactly what they do. Hell on Earth refines the Mobb Deep formula, amplifying much of what made The Infamous a success. The bleak street narratives are even more violent and extreme, and the production is even grittier and creepier. It's still indebted to -- but more dramatic than -- the RZA's work with the Wu-Tang Clan: eerie strings and bits of piano, underpinned by deep, echoing beats. Although the overall flavor is pretty much the same as before, it's a bit more sophisticated and cinematic. For those reasons, some Mobb fans actually prefer Hell on Earth over The Infamous, although it's missing some of the thematic unity and clearly emphasized details that made the world of The Infamous so cohesive. Hell on Earth also lacks some of the freshness, but even if Mobb Deep is repeating itself, it's doing so very effectively. The album is superbly moody and haunting, with the swirling horror-film atmospherics of "G.O.D., Pt. III" and the hypnotic "Hell on Earth Front Lines" standing out in particular. "Drop a Gem on 'Em" is another highlight, an answer song in the 2Pac beef that happened to appear not long before the rapper's murder. Special guests Method Man, Raekwon, and fellow Queensbridge native Nas all put in worthy appearances. Even if it isn't quite the landmark that The Infamous was, Hell on Earth is nearly its equal in many other respects.

    YOU KNOW HOW THEY DID IT ON THE INFAMOUS ALBUM,RIGHT? SO THEY DID IT AGAIN,SON

    This is my favorite Mobb Deep album of all time, because after they came out with the Infamous(a classic), they followed up with yet another masterpiece with Hell On Earth. Songs like ''Can't Get Enough of It'' and ''Extortion'' are too cold for words, and ''G.O.D. Pt. III'' has been added to the list of the greatest Mobb tracks ever.

    The Infamous back in the house once again!

    It's hard to decide among Mobb fans what is their best album. ''Hell On Earth'' is the best to date however because depending on how you look at it many people considered this album was the sophmore release(many people still don't know about Juvenile Hell the first album) and there might have been more pressure on this release. It didn't help that the so called East vs. West beef added tension as well. But again they proved not only was there no sophmore jinx, or fear of the heated battle of both coasts but the Mobb was more on the job than ever and showed they only got better. Everything from the venom filled 'Drop A Gem On Them', 'G.O.D. 3'(Bonita Applebum's drum track over Scarface's theme music-WHAT!!!!), to 'Still Shining' and the warning to all fake rappers 'Apostle's Warning' Mobb continued to strive for perfection. The result is an album close to perfection with it's only drawback being that Hav & P are still young and have yet to give us their best effort. We'll take this for the time being. Again realness is hard to find and if you are looking for hip hop rugged and raw look no further.

    The Mobb busts out another blazin album

    The QB duo lay down another blazin album. Hard, tight lyrics and pumpin beats courtesy of the Mobbs own Havoc are displayed on this album better than the past 2. Drop a Gem on 'em!!!!!!
