Fresh (Big Noyd) is a rapper from the Queensbridge Housing Projects in New York City, who signs a multi-million dollar record deal. With all of his new found wealth and fame, he still seems to find it hard to stay away from the grimy street life he once lived. Desperately trying to keep himself aimed toward the right direction in life, his objectives backfire, leaving a bloodbath of gangsters dead in the streets of New York.
Mobb Deep members Prodigy and Havoc met while both attending the prestigious Graphic Arts High School in Manhattan. Thanks to their mutual residence in Queens, along with their mutual passion for hip-hop, the two joined forces to form Mobb Deep. Still in their late teens, the duo released their debut album in 1993, Juvenile Hell, which served as a fitting platform for the duo to launch their careers. Mobb Deep takes pride in not only producing their own beats, but also crafting their own unique style: a street-smart poetic approach centering on the ghetto lifestyle surrounding them. Their brutally honest reality rapping and complimentary melancholy beats landed the duo major-label record deals, the first being The Infamous (1995), followed by Hell On Earth (1996) and Murda Muzik , which quickly soared to the top of the charts and went platinum. Mobb Deep continues to make an impact on the hip-hop industry with their upcoming, highly anticipated 2004 album release, Amerikaz Nightmare.
