Status: Partially Found

Mobb Deep is a hardcore/gangsta rap group based in Queens, New York, who mostly reached their apex from 1995-2000. Mobb Deep during this time was one of the most respected hip-hop groups, releasing classic albums such as The Infamous, Hell on Earth and Murda Muzik.

What's forgotten is that around 1997-98, their fourth album, Murda Muzik, was leaked through Napster, meeting a fate very similar to Lil Kim's The Notorious K.I.M. and Nas' I Am... The Autobiography, in which the album had to be re-recorded, though unlike those albums, much of Murda Muzik's original content was left intact, although some of the lyrics and beats were altered due to re-recording.

Some of these tracks were on a reviewer copy leaked by the well known mp3 scene group RNS. This copy contained voice-overs on the tracks as an anti-piracy measure. A nfo file with more information on this release is available from mp3scene.info.[1]

Current Status

Currently, its unknown who may be in possession of these tracks. Max, owner of the Hip Hop Isn't Dead blog, claims to own a bootleg, but has never uploaded or written about it in detail, and has been on indefinite hiatus. It's unlikely these tracks will be released, though Mobb Deep has previously remastered older unreleased tracks for re-release, though limited.
