QBC – Chance The Rapper’s ingenious #SoGoneChallenge has likely run its course, but not without making as big a cultural impact one can have through social media hashtags.

Sports stars such as Dame Lillard, Dwyane Wade and Rasheed Wallace, as well as other celebrities like Kevin Hart, Keke Palmer and even the song’s originator, R&B songstress Monica all followed the trend that kept us entertained for about week.

But a couple of legendary rappers from the Queensbridge projects are saying it’s time for the realll…Hip Hop, and they have just the instrumental to command a real MC’s attention.

Less than 24 hours ago, The Infamous Mobb Deep sent out the call for the #ShookOnesChallenge, which utilizes their classic 1995 single “Shook Ones (Pt. II)” from their classic “debut,” The Infamous. Although the record isn’t renown for its commercial prowess or award show trophies, it’s widely respected as one of the greatest Hip Hop songs of all-time, even getting a second resurgence for a new generation by appearing in the most important scene of Eminem’s 2002 8 Mile film, as well as its secondary soundtrack, More Music from 8 Mile.

“No disrespect to those doing the #SoGoneChallenge but we want to know where the real spitters at?” the official Mobb Deep Instagram page wrote. Prodigy made the call so it’s on #ShookOnesChallenge let’s go! No whack Ish allowed… #InfamousSociety #IceExports #MobbDeep”

Boi-1da Producing On Mobb Deep's "The Infamous Mobb Deep" Album
 

Drake producer Boi-1da says he is working with Havoc on beats for Mobb Deep’s forthcoming “The Infamous Mobb Deep” set.

Boi-1da is among those who will be producing material with Havoc for Mobb Deep’s forthcoming The Infamous Mobb Deep album.

“It’s new-age with that old Mobb twist to it,” the Toronto producer says during an interview with vibe.com. “I was a big fan of Mobb Deep and Havoc’s production, so I just reached out and me and him have been producing records together, sending stuff back and forth. I can say that I have some records on the new Mobb Deep album that me and Havoc did together. It’s something I knocked off my bucket list.”

Mobb Deep announced its The Infamous Mobb Deep album and tour last month. Havoc and Prodigy are slated to release the double album through Infamous Records/Red in March, according to Prodigy. The collection is scheduled to include unreleased selections from the group’s 1995 sessions while crafting its The Infamous album, according to a press release. The project is slated to include a digitally re-mastered version of The Infamous and a new self-titled album. 

“We’re gonna have special packaging and we’ve got like 10 unreleased songs from The Infamous album,” Prodigy said on Huffington Post. “Verses nobody’s ever heard before from Raekwon, Nas, Ghostface [Killah], our verses. It’s crazy.”
