Certain songs are named based on the content. Others get their title from specific lyrics. But, I have a feeling that in the case of Mobb Deep’s latest leak, “Conquer,” the track specifically just took the name of the instrumental file it was built on. Produced by IMD and Havoc, this larger-than-life beat is so epic it could be used in the opening credits of a 300 sequel. The horns are so triumphant, woodwinds across the globe simultaneously shivered, upon it’s release. There is so much authority omitted from this slice of Queensbridge, “Hail To The Chief” has been downgraded to back-up for Presidential ceremonies.
Oh, and if you didn’t know, this audio beast will also be included on The Mobb’s first release in five years, Black Cocaine, which drops on November 21.
