Back in December, news broke that Prodigy and Havoc would be releasing The Infamous Mobb Deep. A two-disc set that will compose of new music, a remastering of their 1995 classic The Infamous, and 10-previously-unreleased tracks from The Infamous recording sessions. Some of which include unheard verses from Raekwon, Nas, Ghostface Killah and more.
Currently on the accompanying tour, Prodigy jumped on the phone with XXL to reveal more details on the highly-anticipated bonus disc.
“It comes with a bonus ten songs that we made in 1994 when we were creating the Infamous album that never made the album. We recently just found those old songs, and there’s verses on there from Ghostface, Raekwon, from me, N.O.R.E., the whole team, that was never heard before, that was never released. Certain skits.”
He also took some time out to speak on the future of of M-O-B-B music wise and what to expect.
“We got production from Havoc, of course, and Alchemist, we got production from !llmind, Boi-1da, we got some thug shit on there.”
“I would just say, our signature sound is a dark, sinister-type of sound. There’s certain things we’re going through in our lives right now, [and] the lyrics are just up to date. Everything that we’re saying is going on right now. Each album is like that, it’s a time capsule of that time period. So now in 2014, you’re gonna hear what we’re going through in our lyrics, what’s going through our head as grown men.”
