Just days after Mobb Deep's Prodigy became a free man, the rapper's former G-Unit Records labelmate Lloyd Banks now reveals that a joint album featuring the two rappers is in the works.
Although the "Punch Line King" has yet to speak with P, Banks said he has already reached out to Mobb Deep associate/producer Alchemist.
The self-proclaimed Punch Line King announced a special track he has in mind for his former G-Unit teammate Prodigy. "I haven't spoken to him yet," Banks said. "We gonna get something done." Banks added that he has, however, been in contact with the gruff-voiced rapper's longtime producer and comrade the Alchemist and promised that the pair will work together. He mentioned that he already has a record in mind for the collaboration, which would include another artist. "I had the crazy record, [but] I'm not gonna say the other feature, but hopefully I get a good one," he teased. (MTV)
Once P was released from jail earlier this week, 50 Cent publicly welcomed home the rapper.
"my man Prodigy is free! check out his first pic #WelcomeBackP @PRODIGYMOBBDEEP http://twitpic.com/476ke9," 50 tweetedMonday (March 7). (50 Cent's Twitter)
P's release from a three-year weapons conviction sentence became public record Monday morning.
According to the NYS Department of Correctional Services, prisoner 08A1481 better known as Prodigy, was released from Mid-State Correctional Facility this morning after serving a three year sentence on weapons charges. Welcome back, dun." (Rap Radar)
Earlier this month, Mobb Deep's Havoc spoke on why their G-Unit deal collapsed.
"An album is definitely in the sights," Hav said. Although the disc's home is uncertain as of know. Havoc said, while they are still cool with 50 Cent, the group is no longer on G-Unit Records. "It was a problem for Interscope, where I guess they felt that we didn't sell enough records for them at that time," he explained. "So they let us go off the roster and we was like, the stipulations in contracts was real technical so after that I think the G-unit contracts just expired. [But] we [won't] stay homeless for long," the free agent added. (XXL Mag)
