Memories man, I remember in the early to mid 90's when anything coming out of Queensbridge, Wu, or Boot Camp Clik was a gem.Mobb Deep beats were way advanced compared to a lot of shit in the golden era, Havoc had some of the bests beats in the Nineties, mabie he wasnt Premier or Pete Rock but his beats off the Infamous and Hell on Earth were nasty
