Mobb Deep's Havoc has reached out to fans to send a reminder of incarcerated member Prodigy's forthcoming return and aim to drop another album.
Writing via Twitter, Hav promised to make the next Mobb album a "classic."
"HAD A REAL GOOD VISIT WIT PEE! HE TOLD ME TO TELL ALL U F*GGOTS IN THE INDUSRTY TO FALL THE F*CK BACK!," he wrote on Sunday (January 10). "Its Mobb Deep Forever. Wait till P get back!!!!! Next album will be classic!!" (Havoc's Twitter)
Last summer, Hav released his "Letter to P" dedication record.
"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." (Peter Rosenberg Late Show)
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)
