After hearing albums like the Infamous and Hell On Earth, I was excited about hearing Infamy, without the thought that M-O-B-B would ever cross over. I was wrong. The beats carry the content of the songs, the rhymes are standard and much like the crap that is being released under the label of hip-hop nowadays. The hooks are what each song is sold on, the pop sounding choruses or meaningless "war" lyrics that just come across as annoying. There are a few bearable tracks but no where near enough for this album to redeem itself. I was deeply disappointed with this album, Murda Muzik was not up to par with infamous and Hell On Earth, but Infamy really was the end for Mobb Deep. (Amerikaz Nightmare confirms that statement)

The album opens with whut is set to be a new thug anthem for 2002 with Pray for Me. Lil Mo adds a lil gangsta sound to the hook, with Prodigy spittin thug literature over a typically street beat from Havoc. Murda Muzik had the Quiet Storm remix, HNIC had YBE, Infamy has Bounce. A track aimed directly at the clubs, with a fittin title becuse it will be impossible not to bounce to this beat. After givin yaself neck-ache, Bounce is followed by, for me, the album's stand-out cut. Clap has Havoc producin another neck-snappin beat, with an addictive chorus n Prodigy spittin witty punchlines n straight thug verses in his immediately recognisble voice, Hav even puts in one of his best verses on the track. The album even finds room for 112 to put a hook in on Hey Luv. P n Hav get real for a minute n tells it how it is with a gyrl rather than actin fake about how many lydeez he's laid in the past week. Slim's high-vocals wail across the track n make it flow like he wuz made for Havoc's production. The result of puttin the hottest act in R'n'B with arguably the hottest act in Hip Hop is a track which will keep both the thug's and their boo alike happy. But don't think the Mobb are startin to go soft, Hey Luv is followed up by one of the hardest cuts on the album thats been burnin up the radio and my top 10 recently, with The Learning (Burn). Havoc lays down a hard-hittin beat with Noyd lendin a verse as always n Vita from Murder Inc puts down the chorus, as Prodigy spits fire at Jay-Z. Shots are also fired at Jigga on Crawlin, tho this time much more direct...and mkes references to the infamous incident of Jay-Z puttin the baby pictures of Prodigy on a screen at Summer Jam. The track is typical grimey Mobb anthem. The head noddin beats carry on throughout the album on one of the albums stand-out cuts, Live Foul, Hurt Niggas, nd on the club joint, Handcuffs. Other stand-out cuts include There I Go Again with Ron Isley croonin the hook in his tell-tale voice like only he can. A nd no classic album would be complete the retrospective cut, in this case, Nothing Like Home, featurin new-comer first heard on the 41st side compiltion, Littles.
From track 1 to the bonus track at the end of the album, Infamy is straight, raw, hard-hittin, grimey hip hop, just like it should be

This album is nothing like Mobb Deep's usual efforts. It is the best out of all their releases. The beats on the tracks are all excellent. A new beat maker who has made beats for the likes of Dr Dre created beats for 8 tracks on the album. Tracks to look out for are, The learning (burn), kill or be killed,Clap, Hey luv (with 112) and Get Away. This album has the talent we saw in Murda Musik.
If you are considering buying the album just because of their current beef with JayZ then re-consider. They only mention him twice and they dont really diss him. Mobb Deep have concentrated on creating a great album and have ignored the taunting and childish behaviour of JayZ.
Prodigy drops some real hot lyrics on this album, check out his solo album HNIC.
I have rated this album 5 stars as it has great beats and lyrics. Its about time somebody gave these MCs some credit! Go buy the album!

I heard this CD when it heat the shelves in 2001, it was fantastic! Pure Magic. Nothing like Home is a personal favourite though Learning (burn) & Hey Love ..Anything also get alot repeats on my player. The music on this CD taps into your moods & should be a must but 4 any rap lover.

More mature, more sadness, still ghetto. even the " cross-over " songs are dark and sad.
Good job.. thank you for delivering some pure and raw Hip hop for the true one and the others...

The learning is the best rap tune I have heard in a while. The beat is original and incredible, and is topped off with some typical mobb deep rhyming exellence. Other tunes on the album are very reminicent of the rugged styles we know mobb produce, with some flavours similar to dre(live foul for example).
Not as good as the other mobb albums however, with some strange experimental tunes, but this is a lot better than most rap albums floating around at the moment, and is better than hnic.
