  • There is also some kind of keyboard that plays a simple loop but it's definitely in a higher key than for instance the piano in Shook Ones Pt
  • The only real problem I have with it is the last minute or so of the song, it just sort of draws on longer than it should

      “Temperature’s Rising” is the third single off of Mobb Deeps classic album “The Infamous”. The song is the seventh track on the album. “Temperature’s Rising” features backup vocals from singer Crystal Johnson, who sings the chorus and the outro of the song.

      As far as beats go “Temperature’s Rising” has a surprisingly uplifting beat as far as the rest of the songs on the album goes. There’s a nice little drum loop that plays while a deep rolling bass plays a simple scale. There is also some kind of keyboard that plays a simple loop but it’s definitely in a higher key than for instance the piano in “Shook


      Ones Pt. 2″ or “Survival of the Fittest”. Crystal Johnson’s vocals are pretty good when she sings the chorus. It isn’t until the last minute or so of the song where it get’s kind of obnoxious. The song play’s two separate tracks of her at that time, the first one she keeps says “surprising” and the other track is of her doing falsetto’s and throwing her voice around. There are instances where she is doing similar shenanigans throughout the track, but it seems to be kept under control. The end of the song she just let’s loose and it taints the beauty of her voice.

      Despite the somewhat cheery ...


      • beat of “Temperature’s Rising” it does have a gritty real world feel to it as far as the lyrics and meaning of the song goes. The song happens to be about a friend who just got arrested, and how things are getting heated on the block. The first verse is about the singer (Prodigy) being paranoid about the incident, talking about people snitching/pointing fingers, worrying about the phones being tapped. In Havok’s verse you find out the guy who got arrested Killa Black, is Havok’s brother. Havok raps about that they know who sold out Killa Black and they are going to chop him up and dump him.
        It also reveals that Havok is doing whatever he can to cover up the crime, like tying a gun to a brick and throwing it in a river.

        “Temperature’s Rising” is a well told little story of a song. The only real problem I have with it is the last minute or so of the song, it just sort of draws on longer than it should. It’s a pretty heavy song, fortunately I never went through anything like this, but the way they describe it in full detail is a waiting anxiety attack. For real though, if a story doesn’t move you, then why bother? Give “Temperature’s Rising” a go.
