There ain’t no such things as halfway crooks. The infamous words of Mobb Deep will always be remembered by true fans of hip-hop… A reminder of a purer era of gritty beats and even grittier lyrics. It was my extreme pleasure, then, to come across this incredibly deep remix cut of Mobb Deep’s classic “Shook Ones Pt. II” by Marco Darko. The booty is just as minimalist as the original beat, layering on very deep and thick bass and sprinkling different drums and vocal samples on top, creating a fantastic late night (or any time, really) tune. I have no doubt I will be throwing this on this Saturday in celebration of the holiday.
