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
Here’s a quickstrike dosage of bars from half of Mobb Deep.
WatchLoud caught up with Havoc to get him to list the best five beats he ever concocted for other emcees.
The Mobb Deep and Alchemist working relationship has been intact for years. But now Havoc and Alchemist have connected for a full length project for your listening pleasure titled The Silent Partner. Prodigy, Method Man, and Cormega join the grimy rapping festivities.
What happens when Havoc becomes the next contestant on Mass Appeal’s Rhythm Roulette? Dopeness.
Havoc and Alchemist recruit Method Man for the really violent sounding “Buck 50’s & Bullet Wounds” off of The Silent Partner album.
On May 20, Havoc and Alchemist will drop The Silent Partner album and will mark the first time these two have worked on an entire project together. But first comes the official single “Maintain (F*ck How You Feel)” that gives you a taste of what’s to come.
