New York rap veteran Prodigy recently updated fans on the status of Mobb Deep after having engaged in a publicized rift with longtime sidekick Havoc last year.
Despite the feud, Capital P said Mobb Deep is back in full effect and has a group project in the works.
Prodigy also took a moment to share that his relationship with Havoc is back in a good place after reports of the two having issues surfaced last year. The pair reunited to embark on the nationwide Mobb Deep 20th Anniversary Tour this past spring. “Me and Hav, we’re like brothers,” says Prodigy. “We had a little disagreement that spilled out to the public, that was corny. But it what it is. We’re back on the road. We’re working on the next Mobb Deep album right now.” (AHH)
Earlier this year, Hav revealed the upcoming Mobb Deep LP was roughly halfway completed and would primarily feature his beats.
“Me and P been in the studio for the past month, we damn near got half of the next Mobb Deep album knocked out… On this new Mobb Deep album it’s just going to be all me [on the production] and less of somebody coming up with some s**t. I been f**king with Boi-1da a little bit too, he got some hot s**t, kinda meshing both of our sounds together, so that should be interesting.” (Miss Info TV)
Recently, Hav and P talked about hooking back up and performing a slew of lesser known tracks during their nationwide tour last spring.
“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.

Last winter, P refused to lay out Mobb Deep’s deathbed despite being in a publicized feud with Hav.
“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”)
