Mobb Deep's Havoc has released a new song called "Letter to P," which reveals the producer's thoughts about his incarcerated partner Prodigy who has been serving time behind bars since 2008 for illegal gun possession.
In addition to clearing up Mobb break-up rumors, Hav also informs P of his Rock the Bells 2009 performance.
"Yeah, let me holla at my son real quick, my motherf*cking n*gga man, d*mn" Hav says on the song's intro. "What's up, P/Hope all is well, I shoulda wrote you sooner/But since our last visit I've been fighting off them rumors/Like me and you, we not rockin' like we used to/My loyalty is strong and I don't feel I got to prove to you/But that's not why I wrote cha, I'm just checking on you homie -- It's crazy how they only let you n*ggas get cassettes/And do they even make 'em still/That's some real funny sh*t/Other than that/Everything, everything/You know the summers, mad hot, bad b*tches, baggin' numbers/Rae let me rock at Rock the Bells/And Nas was headlining, he ain't even hit my cell/Know you heard him going through it, so it probably get him stressed/So I ain't trippin', I did my thing and left/And hit the studio, I'm trying to get my verses up..." ("Letter to P")
Hav recently spoke on his difficulty being away from P for over a year and a half.
"I could grab a couple of [archived Prodigy] verses," Hav explained in an interview with radio personality Peter Rosenberg. "It ain't the same, though. This is like the longest that we've been away from each other. It's hard but at the same token, we still gotta kinda like keep the Mobb name out there relevant. Just do what I like to do."

50 Cent is reportedly working to get Prodigy out from behind bars before 2010.
"Shout-out to Fif because that's why I love him so much," Mobb Deep associate Nyce said in an interview earlier this summer. "A lot of people think that Fif is such a bad guy, he a bad guy because he hates you. He's a real good dude and right now he's trying to get P out a little bit earlier like December, January. And I'm really thankful for that 'cause P is the chain that keeps the bike moving. So I definitely respect him for that. I grew up with Fif, [Lloyd] Banks and [Tony] Yayo." (Forbez DVD)
P pleaded guilty in October 2007 to a gun possession charge which led to his current incarceration.
Mobb Deep rapper Prodigy has been sentenced to three-and-a-half years behind bars after pleading guilty to a weapons charge dating back to 2006. Authorities say Prodigy was pulled over in downtown Manhattan after he was spotted driving in the opposite direction on a one-way street in an attempt to claim a parking spot. A search of the car turned up an unlicensed .22-caliber pistol. He will begin his sentence January 2008. (Hip Hop Galaxy)
