Hip-hop heads in Fredericton, New Brunswick on November 15, 2014 were blessed with a rare treat. Rap legends ‘Mobb Deep,’ hailing from the largest public housing projects in North America, Queensbridge, blessed the makeshift stage at Klub Khrome. When Prodigy stepped on the stage he joked, ‘We may have a small stage up here, but we are about to do big things.’ And, they did, banging off hit after hit from the mid 1990s to today. The hip-hop duo consisting of Havoc and Prodigy have sold millions of records in their career, and are known for their hardcore, East-Coast style of rap and lyrical depictions of ‘street-life.’ The group was also involved in the famous ‘East Coast versus West Coast’ rap rivalry, at least on wax.
Of course Gardner Photography was on hand to capture some of the action at this stop along Mobb Deep’s 20th Anniversary Tour, a show made possible by the folks at Jayo Productions & 902 Nonstop Records. Opening that night were several local performers, including S.E., Phakt, City Natives, MDB and more, with music by DJ Slim.
