Mobb Deep w/Jung Youth & Openmic

When: Thu., May 1, 9 p.m. 2014

While it is an imperfect metric, I’d say the true test of an album’s durability is its ability to maintain steady rotation in my car. And according to that standard, Mobb Deep’s classic sophomore record The Infamous is one of the most enduring records of all time. Where other, lesser albums have succumbed to the floorboards, while others have been chewed up by a sketchy eject button, The Infamous remains unscratched, unbroken and unstoppable. I’ll just assume that almost daily listens to “Shook Ones (Part II)” has my car terrified of messing with that album. The Mobb’s catalog exemplifies the hardest of rap’s hardcore era — that moment when complex beats and complex lyrics combined to scare the shit out of Middle America — and this rare tour is one you should not miss.
