NEWS: Mobb Deep Back Together Again [KingpinTV.net]

It’s official: Hip-hop duo Mobb Deep’s putting their beef on the back burner … and officially heading out on a 20th anniversary tour later this spring … TMZ has learned.

The duo — a.k.a. Havoc and Prodigy — were entwined in an intense rap feud ever since Havoc tore into Prodigy on Twitter … claiming among other things that Prodigy had engaged in a slew of jailhouse relationships during his 3-year stint in the slammer.

But now, the two rappers have let bygones be bygones … and recently announced they’re headed back on the road together. First stop? The Paid Dues festival in L.A. this March.

Sources close to the group say it’s just the first of many shows — and will act as the unofficial kickoff for their April world tour … where they’ll be celebrating 20 years as a group.

NEWS: Nas’ Life Is Good Album Enters Billboard At No. 1! [TekniqueTheKingpin*com]

Life Is Good for Nas.

After it’s first week in stores, the tenth album from the celebrated rap vet entered the Billboard 200 at No. 1. The release sold 139,000 copies, which was good enough to give the Queens native his fifth No. 1 album. This was his first solo project since 2008′s Untitled, which also entered the charts in the top slot. This time around, Nasty kept the team tight, as Rick Ross was the only rap feature on the album, and the majority of the production was handled by No I.D. and Salaam Remi.

Eager to continue to build momentum for the project, Nas is preparing to shoot new videos for some of the cuts on the album. “I got a record with Mary J. Blige that just gives you that feeling,” he told MTV’s RapFix recently of “Reach Out.” “It just feels like early Mary J. Blige, early Nas. I want to shoot a video to that.” He went on to mention that he plans on working with Chris Robinson on some of the visuals. “He’s a great director,” Nas continued. “I’m looking forward to shooting ‘Bye Baby,’ and making it like a movie. I want to do a lot of videos to this album,” he said. “It’s a video age. I want to do more than I’m known for doing.”

NEWS: Nas Album Set For July Release! [TekniqueTheKingpin*com]

You never know what you’re going to get with Nas, perhaps hip-hop’s most inconsistent genius.

Will he deliver an album filled with trenchant insights into race, struggle and the dehumanizing mechanics of the music industry? Or will he do an album where he grumbles about new rap trends and then brags about his wealth over ill-fitting glossy Diddy beats? But the man made Illmatic, so he gets a million chances to get it right.

 

But regardless of the quality of the actual album, Nas almost always leads with a hot single, and he’s recently had two: “Nasty” and “The Don”, the latter featuring production from the late Heavy D as well as well as Da Internz and Salaam Remi.

 

Both singles found Nas sounding engaged and nimble atop classic-sounding New York boom-bap production. So, here’s hoping his new album Life Is Good, which will officially be out July 17 via Def Jam, lives up to the anticipation. 

The exact tracklist is not yet available, but we do know that the third single, “Daughters,” will drop in early May, and will feature beats from the always-reliable No-I.D. Additionally, a video for “The Don” will premiere this Friday.
