The Infamous... is the second studio album by the American hip hop duo Mobb Deep. It was released on April 25, 1995, by Loud Records.
The album features guest appearances by Nas, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, and Q-Tip.
The album's dark style, defined by its evocative melodies, rugged beats, and introspective lyrics concerning crime in New York's inner city neighborhoods, received special recognition and critical praise.
Along with albums such as Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), Illmatic and Ready to Die, The Infamous... is widely credited as a major contributor to the East Coast Renaissance.
Furthermore, the album is credited with helping to redefine the sound of hardcore hip hop, using its production style, which incorporated eerie piano loops, distorted synthesizers, eighth-note hi-hats, and sparse filtered basslines.
