    They stick to their strengths--menacing songs about breaking peoples noses and such. [Jan 2012, p.70]

    A 20-minute appetizer that's short, sharp, and impressively tart.

    Black Cocaine is still raw in the right ways.

    Black Cocaine comes across as not particularly different than, say, recent records from Saigon or Uncle Murda or M.O.P.

    Judging by this underwhelming return, Prodigy's stint in the correctional facilities merely constituted time lost.

    Was stoked to hear Mobb Deep was going to drop a new album, but then found out that it was only an EP. So this has only 6 or so tracks on it-all of which has classic Mobb Deep Sound-gritty and driving. The title track "Black Cocaine" is pretty catchy for a MD sound but they stay true to their roots, not trying to be anything but what they have been for years in the game-which you could view as good or bad. But if you liked MD in the past, thier is no reason not to have this in your IPod. Expand
