I've listened to this record repeatedly since its release and it is one of the most consistent albums 2007 produced.

Marco's been putting it down with some of the most prominent names in underground hip-hop for years now and his ability to attract some of the names on this record that he did is testament to his reputation. Veterans such as Large Professor, Masta Ace and Kool G Rap are accompanied by some of hip-hop's relatively recent emergences including Supastition and the Low Budget crew.

Amazing. It's shocking to believe that Havoc and Prodigy were only 19 when they made this classic CD. Their first album "Juvenile Hell" flew right over the heads of the hip-hop world but after hearing such mindblowing performances such as the ones that Mobb have produced in "The Infamous" & "Hell On Earth" - the rap world will be on a hunt for that album. 1996 was when Havoc used "Hell On Earth" to shine. "The Infamous" however belonged to Prodigy. Assisted with the gritty beats provided to him by Havoc, Prodigy invited the listener to hear him rip every single track. With guest appearances such as Nas, Raekwon & Ghostface Killah (all on the same track) he had some help. Who could deny this… Read more
