J-Love "Mobb Misses" (Mixtape, 1998)

J-Love released the original Mobb Misses mixtape on cassette in 1998, boasting that Mobb Deep was "a group so ill there unreleased songs are bangin!" Facts. A second installment was released in 2001, then I think both mixes were later redone, along with additional mixes reppin' Prodigy and Havoc individually, too. In true Infamous Mobb Deep fashion, the mix tape includes tracks featuring affiliated artists like Big Noyd, Cormega, ACD, Tragedy, Large Professor, Ty Nitty and also Nas, Foxy Brown and Onyx. Some of my favorites are "Cop Hell", "Young Luv", and "Perfect Plot," among others. The loss of Prodigy is still heavy on our minds and hearts, but there's so much incredible music to go back and celebrate year after year. Dig into Mobb Misses below or break out your walkman and a copy of the cassette... I'll update the link as needed if it goes down (again). Rest In Peace, Prodigy.
