To most in New York City, Queensbridge is known as a subdivision in the borough of Queens, although it is technically a section inside the subdivision of Long Island City, sitting at the edge of the island where it maintains its stagnant reputation as the worst section of Queens that ever was. According to a source, QB is the largest public housing development in the United States, sheltering some 7,000 people. Out of the dirt and grime of this enormous community came the Infamous duo Mobb Deep.
The days of "Shook Ones," "Quiet Storm" and "Start of Your Ending," to name a few, were the defining bangers of the once prolific rap duo's existence. And while they're still in the flesh, they appeared to have lost their way, their clout, position, record sales, and in some ways, their street cred and respect.
