Mobb Deep added to Maryland Deathfest (seriously), playing other shows too (including NYC this Sunday)

Mobb Deep

Maryland Deathfest is less than a month away (May 21-24), and the lineup was already stacked with Neurosis, Napalm Death, Yob, Triptykon, Primordial, Inter Arma, Tombs, D.R.I., Conan, Ufomammut, Sodom and so many more. Yet MDF still felt the need to sweeten the deal, so they went ahead and added one more to the lineup: Mobb Deep.

You didn’t read that wrong, and it’s not some foreign metal band with a lawsuit ahead of them. The legendary Queensbridge hip hop duo Mobb Deep are playing at 11:30 PM on the Thursday of MDF (5/21) at Baltimore Soundstage, amongst this otherwise metal, hardcore, and metal-related lineup. It’s not crazy — it’s not like Slayer wasn’t on Def Jam, Anthrax never collaborated with Public Enemy, and metal and hip hop haven’t had a crossover fan base for years — but it should be interesting to see how this goes down. Tickets for just the Mobb Deep show are on sale, and anyone with an MDF 4-day pass or a Thursday Soundstage ticket can get in too.

Mobb Deep also have several other dates including a hometown NYC show this weekend at BB King’s on Sunday (4/26) with Funkmaster Flex, Alchemist and Smif-N-Wessun. Tickets for Sunday’s show are still available.

Meanwhile, their seminal 1995 album, The Infamous, turns 20 tomorrow (4/25). Listen to “Shook Ones Pt. II” from that record, with their tour dates and the updated MDF schedule, below…
