Mobb Deep: Murda Muzik (Loud/Epic)
Stevie Chick, New Musical Express, 11 September 1999
IN QUEENSBRIDGE, NYC, when someone gets shot, they generally don't get up. Your homey isn't out drinking 40s and smoking blunts; he's laying on a slab with a tag on his toe. If Public Enemy are "Black CNN", then Mobb Deep are the bleakest investigative documentary.
