"Yo.. crack the Henny bottle while I drop this jewel on your dome", un extrait de la chanson "Allustrious", n'est qu'un exemple de la passion toujours renouvelée de Mobb Deep pour Hennessy.
The classic 1995 "The Infamous" album featured the song "Drink Away The Pain (Situations)", showcasing more of Mobb Deep's favourites in addition to Hennessy and E&J. Upon first listening one could assume that Havoc and Prodigy are talking about women, but really it's all about alcohol.
Prodigy starts the song off like this: "I used to be in love with this bitch named E&J, don't fuck with her no more now I fuck with Tanqueray, Tanqueray introduced me to her first cousin Gold, last name was English and the first name Olde, but Gold couldn't take the dick it made me lazy, we split apart and now I met this new trick Dainy, now me and Dainy, we been together ever since..."
In case you're wondering: "Dainy" is dunn language (Queensbridge slang) for St. Ides, while Old Gold is one of many nicknames for Olde Englsh.
The music video of their Nas assisted single "It's Mine" was filmed on a Caribbean island and showed the trio drinking lots of Cristal:
