Mobb Deep’s Prodigy and Havoc have updated fans anxious to see them on their upcoming limited 20-year anniversary tour by revealing what to expect and how far in advance they will prepare.
According to Hav, they will unveil tracks they have never performed before on their 20-year anniversary run.
“It’s definitely gonna be songs performed that we’ve never performed before,” Havoc promised when the group spoke to MTV News. Pee estimates that he and Hav get together about two weeks before a tour to choose which songs they’ll travel with. “We just recently we did a rehearsal together and as soon as I walked in the door, Pee was playing something that we never performed before and I was like ‘Yo, let’s do that!’ ” Hav said anecdotally, though he wouldn’t give up the goods.

Their multi-city tour buzz heated up the Internet in early February.
It’s official: hip-hop duo Mobb Deep’s putting their beef on the back burner … and officially heading out on a 20th anniversary tour later this spring … TMZ has learned. The duo — a.k.a. Havoc and Prodigy — were entwined in an intense rap feud ever since Havoc tore into Prodigy on Twitter … claiming among other things that Prodigy had engaged in a slew of jailhouse relationships during his 3-year stint in the slammer. But now, the two rappers have let bygones be bygones … and recently announced they’re headed back on the road together. First stop? The Paid Dues festival in L.A. this March. Sources close to the group say it’s just the first of many shows — and will act as the unofficial kickoff for their April world tour … where they’ll be celebrating 20 years as a group. (TMZ)
Earlier this year, P refused to lay out Mobb Deep’s deathbed despite their publicized feud.
“Nah, nah, it’s just on standby,” Capital P said when asked if it is time to retire the Mobb Deep brand. “Yeah, I’m sure about that. I love Mobb Deep. Mobb Deep made my life what it is. Havoc feels the same way, so we’ll be right back to work. For right now, he’s doing his thing and I’m doing my thing. I’ve got goals I’m trying to accomplish, and I really can’t let nothing sidestep me or get in the way of that. If that means I gotta put Mobb Deep on standby for the time being, then so be it. That’s what has to happen.” (“Usual Suspects Radio”)
In October, Capital P denied Hav’s claim of possibly having affection toward men and spoke on the dispute.
“Nah, you know Hav don’t deserve that,” Prodigy said in an interview when asked if Havoc deserves to get shot. “[Have I ever participated in any homosexual activity?] H*ll f*cking no! H*ll no. I’ma tell you like this, the only thing I can really say is, you know what I mean, what I’ve been doing since I came home [in spring 2011], putting books out, putting out albums, mixtapes, you know, I started my own lable, I got a distribution deal, running around, setting up these tours, getting merchandising deals, getting endorsement deals, that’s all I really know, dog. [Have I asked him about the disses?] Nah. I just want to work, man — shout-out ot Havoc too, shout-out ot Hav. Word. That’s my dog. [Anything else I want to tell people?] I don’t have anything against gay people, dog. I’ve got some family members that are gay, I know some people that are gay, I got a couple of gay friends.” (This Is 50)
