Editorial Review

Only Mobb Deep can take credit for turning a cut-throat, haunting anthem for thieves and killers into a timeless club banger that gets women in stilettos denouncing halfway crooks. “Shook Ones Pt. II” is the crown jewel of a 20-year catalog of monotone threat music that started when Havoc and Prodigy were still in their teens. Mobb Deep is one of the best duos in hip-hop history and they’ll doing a Howard Homecoming show Saturday night at Liv.

General admission is $30 in advance. Hardcore Mobb Deep fans -- are there any other kind? -- can also choose a $50 VIP ticket that allows a meet-and-greet before the show and access to the VIP section, or a $100 VVIP pass that includes a chance to watch the duo at soundcheck, a meet-and-greet, an autographed copy of Prodigy's new book and access to the VIP section.
