A passing of the torch, maybe? For years Mobb Deep has stood at the forefront as Hip-Hop’s marquee gangsta rap duo, even as the quality of their music declined over the years. While Queensbridge P was doing time in the belly of the beast, Chicago’s L.E.P. Bogus Boys began to make noise for themselves as a twosome to take heed to with ghetto tales of violence, drugs and hustling by any means necessary.
That said, “Gangstaz Only” os exactly what you’d expect when these two factions made magic happen in a studio. The video for this meeting of the minds type of tracks takes it up a notch, however. Someone obviously studied hours upon hours of mafia flicks seeing as it has all the makings of one. Harold’s Chicken? That’s for people living check to check for people like yours truly. Eating entire lobsters while drinking expensive wine? That’s only reserved for people with bodies under their belt and enough money to pay lawyers to make whatever hassles disappear.
Anywho, look for this modern day mob flick to appear on L.E.P.’s upcoming album Now Or Neva set to drop Halloween 2K11.
