|Mobb Deep singles chronology|
"Quiet Storm" is the first single from Mobb Deep's fourth album Murda Muzik. It was originally released on the soundtrack for the film In Too Deep. The song features a sample of the bass line from the classic hip-hop song "White Lines (Don't Do It)" by Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five and another sample from Smokey Robinson's "A Quiet Storm". The song is widely thought to be one of Mobb Deep's greatest songs. In 2001, R&B group 112 used an updated version of the "Quiet Storm" beat for their number-one single, It's Over Now.
A remix featuring Lil' Kim was released as the album's second single. The remix also became very popular and is noted to be one of Lil' Kim's most memorable guest appearances. Though many believed Kim was dissing her enemy, Foxy Brown, in her verse, it was actually directed towards up-and-coming artists, Charli Baltimore and then-Black Star member Talib Kweli. Kim's verse also interpolates the line, "Hot damn, ho; Here we go again!", off rap icon MC Lyte's "10% Dis" (1988).
