Hot! Havoc And Prodigy Talk Working Together And Securing Their Mobb Deep Legacy

Havoc and Prodigy are gearing up for the release of their ninth Mobb Deep album and recently spoke about getting back to work after spending several years apart due to Prodigy’s imprisonment. Both artists say that the time apart had no effect on their ability to collaborate and produce tracks for their upcoming, and self-titled, record which is expected to drop sometime this year.

According to Mobb Deep’s Havoc, the two musicians know each other well enough that getting back to the studio and working collaboratively was virtually automatic. “If you haven’t ridden a bike in however long, let’s say three years, when you get back on, you know how to ride. The chemistry’s always going to be there. We know each other inside out, so it’s not like we needed to get to know each other again,” said Havoc.

Prodigy added to his partner’s thoughts saying that the time he spent in prison made him more conscious of the future and more concerned with the legacy of Mobb Deep. “I would say my time away made me focus more, even for the both of us. Maybe just made me think more far ahead, like what can we do best to make sure we’ve got this longevity for good, like it’s not going nowhere,” Prodigy added.

Prodigy also had some words of praise for Maybach Music CEO Rick Ross saying that he’s been listening to the rapper over the past few years and expects that Rozay’s music will last the test of time. “Rick Ross, Rick is one artist that I got to make this very clear. Rick is one artist who really impressed me within the past three years that I was gone. He stepped his game all the way the fuck up. I’m talking about his pen game. That boy is spitting right now. And we respect niggas like that, because we the type of niggas that’s on some longevity shit… That’s how people always look at us, and that’s how we look at our own careers. Like fuck that, we gotta keep doing that, we ain’t no one-hit wonders. So we respect other people when we see that in them, and I’ve seen that in him, recently,” said Prodigy.

Prodigy recently released his ‘H.N.I.C. 3’ mixtape and the project sports a host of feature spots including appearances from French Montana, Cory Gunz, Waka Flocka Flame and, of course, Havoc.
