Classic from the “Intelligent Hoodlum” aka “Tragedy Khadafi”
Remember when Prodigy would just rip a track to pieces?
P.A.P.I. aka N.O.R.E reminds us to watch our backs because some people are “Fowl”
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.
Classic Mobb Deep. I may be wrong, but is prodigy high outta his mind in this one? And to the club DJ’s World wide…Why don’t you play Prodigy’s verse? You know who you are
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.
