We gave it a C+
The best gangsta rappers — Snoop Dogg, the Geto Boys — add healthy dollops of humor to leaven their ghetto fables. By contrast, Mobb Deep are just too damn serious for their own good; even the promisingly titled ”Let a Ho Be a Ho” is as dry as sawdust. Taken individually, a few of the tracks on Murda Muzik have a somber power. But wall-to-wall listening can be murder.
