DJ Absolut always seems to have something stashed in the vault. This time, he drops this slapping collaboration with Common, Joell Ortiz, Havoc and Vado titled “World Records.”
Frequent collaborators Streetlife and Method Man have finally decided to drop a full-length album together this spring. To commemorate the announcement, the duo team up with Havoc for “Squad Up.”
Seemingly out of the blue, Cormega drops a new project with MEGA. We plucked this choice joint featuring Havoc titled “Live Your Best Life.” Take a listen and listen to the 5-song project in its entirety on your favorite streaming service.
Infamous Mobb’s Big Twins will finally drop his solo album Grimey Life on November 16th. The raspy-voiced Queensbridge rapper is joined by Havoc on the Knxwledge produced “Memories” where Twins laments over the loss of his fraternal twin, Twin Scarface, who passed in a car accident back in 1995. Havoc also takes the time to shout out the late Prodigy and his older brother Killa Black, who committed suicide the same year Twins lost his brother.
One year after we lost Prodigy, Havoc salutes his fallen friend and shares an unreleased freestyle from the Queensbridge duo over Nas’ “Thief Theme” instrumental.
Lin Manuel Miranda liberates this unreleased gem from the Hamilton vaults almost a year to the day that we lost Prodigy. It’s the Mobb Deep joint “Boom Goes The Canon.”
The passing of Prodigy is still weighing heavy on our hearts. But few are feeling it more than his childhood friend and the other half of Mobb Deep. Havoc sent a video to TMZ to give details on where he was when he found out and how he is feeling.
And now, words from DJ Premier:
THIS SONG WAS PULLED FROM THE “JUVENILE HELL” LP AFTER THE WHOLE ICE-T “COP KILLER” SONG WAS SHOCKING THE WORLD SO MOBB DEEP’s LABEL 4TH & B’WAY REMOVED IT AS WELL…
SOME COPIES LEAKED BUT MOST DJ’s DON’T HAVE IT.
ME, PRODIGY AND HAVOC GOT PULLED OVER BY THE COPS IN 1993 AND THEY WERE ON SOME FOUL SHIT BUT WE WERE ABLE TO GET AWAY WITHOUT THEM FINDING OUT HOW DIRTY THE CAR WAS BACK THEN…
SO WE WROTE THIS SONG ABOUT IT…
HERE IT IS UNCUT…
WE ARE GONNA MISS YOU PRODIGY…(R.I.P.)
CONDOLENCES TO HIS FAMILY…
THA JOINT: COP HELL
THA GROUP: MOBB DEEP
THA PRODUCER: DJ PREMIER
