Mobb Deep "Young Love" (12", 1996)

Mobb Deep recorded ‘Young Love’ for their third album, ‘Hell On Earth,’ but sample clearance issues kept it off the album. It was released on a couple different releases, including a Pre-Hell EP, but most were unofficial pressings. ‘Hell on Earth’ was so hard, I don’t think the track would have even fit on the album regardless. How would this sound next to ‘Drop A Gem On Em”? It’s still a dope track in its own right, perhaps just not on "Hell On Earth." Reminds me more of "Hey Luv" w/ 112.
