Mobb Deep – Shook Ones (MF Doom Remix)

When I first heard Mobb Deep it was unlike anything I had ever heard before. Their music was full of anger and told tales of thugs and gangsters that were very far removed from my life in a rural town in Northern Ireland and I found them to be fascinating. I have cooled towards them now the novelty has worn off but I like this remix, the contrast between the vitriol and the mellow beat works really well. 

Also, MF Doom is a great DJ name. A friend reminded me of one of his tracks during the week and it led me to revisit his work which I like a lot. It is very mellow.
