After recently revealing his feud with Nas was buried, Mobb Deep's Prodigy has hinted at a few stashed away new collaborations fans can look forward to.
Explaining his motivation to patch things up immediately following a three-year jail bid, P said his new "Dog Sh*t" Nas track is the first of many to come.
"We had a real long, interesting conversation about the future and how we want to move forward with our music, just everything like that. But mostly about how we need to put our little bullsh*t aside, and how our music is more important than any of that bullsh*t that we were going through. Right away, we sent him the song 'Dog Sh*t' that we had did, and he got on it, and it's coming out crazy. We did a couple of other songs with him that we haven't put out yet." (Complex)
P also described how vital it was to get back into making music alongside Nasty Nas.
"He was actually on tour with Ky-Mani Marley, so we sent it through the email. We did a couple other joints. Because you know, back when we were coming up, The Infamous and our early albums, that was what we did. We recorded songs with the home team, and Nas was part of the home team. It was only right that we bring that feeling back. You can never go back to a time and try to recreate that sound because that time is done. But you can bring some of the feeling and that nostalgia back by reminding people what n*ggas was about, and how n*ggas is a team. That's what we did, and it's coming out crazy man." (Complex)
Last week, P hinted at his reconciled relationship with the fellow Queens, New York native.
"We've beent talking since I've been home," P told DJ Whoo Kid referring to Nas. "We put that to the side to do this music. This music is crazy right now that we're working on. We did a couple of joints, you know what I'm saying? It's coming out crazy, man. The music is more important than anything, all the little petty bullsh*t, you know what I'm saying? So we good on that...It was all love, because n*ggas came up together. So it's nothing but love when we see each other..." (Radio Planet TV)
Earlier this month, Prodigy and Nas dropped their newest collaboration.
Mobb Deep reunites with frequent collaborator Nas on "Dog Sh*t," produced by The Alchemist and Havoc. The dark, hood-friendly joint, which features piano keys fluttering over ominous bass drones, solidifies Prodigy, Havoc, and Nas' gangster mentality. "Dog sh*t, I sh*t you not/ You bring that larceny, danger, or harm around me?/ Dog sh*t, listen to me good/ We the grand goons, just a lick of nickel dime hood," spits P on the chorus, while Nas welcomes his peer back from prison.
