Mobb Deep's Havoc recently updated fans on the status of his rap group's deal with G-Unit Records and said work would commence on a new album as soon as incarcerated member Prodigy is released from prison.
Despite the loss of past artists including M.O.P and Olivia, Hav said the duo is still a part of the Unit and he was just waiting for his partner to come back home.
"We're definitely gonna work on the next Mobb Deep album, I'm ready for that," Hav said. "'Cause he's [still] a beast, lyrically. And I just miss my partner. That's gonna be one of the first things we work on. I'm not really sure [if we're gonna talk about his time away]. I can't say if that will be reflected in the next project. I do know that it's gonna be crazy. I can guarantee that." (MTV)
He recently released the song "Letter to P" which was dedicated to Prodigy.
"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")
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 over the 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)
