Vinyl Diggin: Mobb Deep “Reach” (unreleased version)

I remember I originally had this song on a Loud Records sampler cassette but I let my tape rock until it popped. Copped it again on the Pre-Hell EP that had some other joints that didn’t make it on the Hell On Earth album. Mobb fans will recogonize this song as “Rare Species,” same lyrics but they changed the beat. I always prefered the original version though. Beat was dirtier and the off key singing of the unnamed shorty doing her version of New Edition’s Once In A Lifetime Groove, went well with it.
