Mobb Deep

Last night's posted set times:
7:00PM-8:00-DJ JEFF CHAIRMAN MAO
8:00-8:30-BLACK THOUGHT & MONEY MAKING JAM BOYS
8:30-9:00-DJ STRETCH ARMSTRONG
9:00-10:00-GHOSTFACE & RAEKWON
10:00-10:15-DJ STRETCH ARMSTRONG
10:15-11:30-MOBB DEEP
The welcome home Mobb Deep show for Prodigy last night at Best Buy Theater (5/12), their first in three years, featured appearances from some of the biggest names of the 90's. Method Man appeared during fellow Wu-Tang Clan members Ghostface & Raekwon's set, and again during a DJ set from one of the crew's biggest supporters in their early years, DJ Stretch Armstrong. Ghost & Rae closed with Ol' Dirty Bastard classic and crowd favorite "Shimmy Shimmy Ya".

Unlike in the days before the release of their classic LP The Infamous, Queensbridge duo Mobb Deep did not freestyle rhymes over Stretch beats, but Black Thought did open the show dropping freestyle verses before The Money Making Jam Boys joined him on stage.

And the 41st side crew had a surprise of their own during their headlining set, bringing out Lil Kim for a rendition of the awesome "Quiet Storm". Video of that, Mobb Deep performing "Burn" and "Right Back At You", and more pictures from the whole show, below...

BBG is one of those mehtal hipsters who pretends to like hiphop.

Well, at least 12:36 knows what's up.

I'm not racist, my fixed gear bike is black and my awful tattoos have mostly black ink. Plus hummus is off white.

There was this killer Mobb Deep and Cormega track that was on the bonus CD that came with the Def Squad's "El Niño". Does anyone know what the track is called or where I may be able to find it?

Hey 12:41, I was actually a working hip-hop DJ for five+ years. But thanks for the vote of confidence ;)

This show looked like alot of fun. Wasnt it originally billed as just Raekwon by himself? Because that would be an automatic skip for me, because he's boring live, but having Ghostface too really makes it alot better.

Does this site ever reject a picture?

This looks incredible. Can't believe I missed it.

Damn! That is a sick lineup. I didn't even know Black Thought was there. NYC lucked out with this one.

12:41 has penis size issues brought on by his dad. plus its rough when he has to jerk off into his grandmas panties while browsing BV and getting jealous of BBG.

mobb deep with a live band sounded really good. rae and ghost sucked, as they usually do live. rae doesn't even have the breath control necessary to perform songs he recorded in his prime. he needs the other guys on stage to finish every sentence.

Mobb Deep is larger then any rappers out there today.
The infamous is probably one of the top 10 greatest hip hop albums of all time.

Meth wasn't there. It was Cappadonna. Can't see how one can mix up the two, c'mon bk vegan, know your Wu!
