After recently mending their past issues, Nas and Prodigy will take their renewed relationship to the next level by coming together for a full length collaborative album.
According to Mobb Deep’s Havoc, the album’s wheels have already been placed into motion.
“We’re gonna do a Mobb Deep and Nas album. It hasn’t begun but we tipped the iceberg a little bit with the ‘Dog Sh*t.’ I think as we was working, doing songs back and forth with Nas recently, I think it was just a mutual thought, like, ‘Yo, let’s make a f*cking album.’ Everybody was like, ‘Yeah, that would be dope. F*ck it, what we waiting for? Let’s do it.'” (Hip Hop DX)
Earlier this month, Nas revealed how he got back on speaking terms with Prodigy.
“He called me as soon as he got out of jail; he got in touch with me,” Nas explained in an interview. “We talked about some things. I didn’t know he had a book. He didn’t tell me that. I guess he just wanted to clear the air on some past things that don’t mean anything today…I just jumped on the [‘Dog Sh*t’] record; put that to the past or whatever ill feelings he had towards me. I think he was misinformed about things, like I was a negative guy or like I was trying to harm him in any kind of way. I think maybe he just grew up a little bit.” (MTV)
Last month, P described how he managed to get Nas on their “Dog Sh*t” collaboration despite the rap star being on the road.
“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)
In addition to the Nas record, Mobb Deep are currently preparing their own LP.
“Yeah, we working. Me and Hav in the studio every day going hard,” Prodigy explained in an interview with Gina Torres. “We’re gonna make that crazy [music]. You know, we’re not gonna put anything out there that’s not crazy because right now it’s not a game. We understand the importance of putting something out that’s going to stand the test of time…Right now, the only real feature I can say is Nas. So other than that, we keeping it under the hat.” (All Hip Hop)
