                I still get goosebumps from playing The Infamous. A quarter century and counting now but it stays pure perfection to me. Everyone involved from P and Hav, to Tip, Nas, Rae, Ghost and Noyd absolutely excels here! An album to live with from the cradle to the grave.

                  Anyone know how to differentiate the OG from this repress: https://www.discogs.com/Mobb-Deep-The-Infamous/release/2171554

                  Matrix / labels appear identical. Granted, the OG has the picture cover, but wondering if the wax is the same?
