Rock The Bells has declared Mobb Deep’s iconic 1995 track “Shook Ones Pt. II” as the ultimate Hip Hop beat of all time. In anticipation of the new year, RTB assembled a panel featuring DJ Epps, Cool (of Cool & Dre), DJ Scratch, and Torae to rank the top 50 Hip Hop beats. In a distinguished Top 5 that included Nas‘ “NY State of Mind,” Craig Mack‘s “Flava In Ya Ear,” A Tribe Called Quest‘s “Electric Relaxation,” and Dr. Dre‘s “Still D.R.E.,” Mobb Deep’s hit emerged as the top pick.

Produced by Havoc, one half of the duo, “Shook Ones Pt. II” served as the lead single for their second album, The Infamous.

In response to this accolade, Havoc expressed, “I just want to say how honored I am to have ‘Shook Ones Pt. II’ by Mobb Deep produced by myself, voted the number one Hip Hop beat of all time. I remember being in the projects in Queensbridge, me and Prodigy just being there trying to make something for the world to hear our voice. And here we are this many years later, being saluted and held as the number one beat and Hip Hop greatest of all time.”

He continued, “But I just want to say thank you to all the Hip Hop fans, rest in peace to my brother Prodigy. He would be just excited — as excited as I am, and I just want to thank all y’all fans, man. Salute.”

Last May, Spotify’s RapCaviar also deliberated on the Top 50 Hip Hop beats, ranking Rock The Bells’ No. 2 pick, Dr. Dre’s “Still D.R.E.” featuring Snoop Dogg, as the ultimate beat. Notably, “Shook Ones Pt. II” secured the second position on their list. The discussion celebrated the 50th anniversary of Hip-Hop, emphasizing that these rankings focused on beats rather than complete songs.
