If you could only see my face when this record popped up in my inbox. Being an adamant fan of Mobb Deep and nearly crapping my pants when I met Alchemist at SXSW ‘10, I was virtually waiting at the prison with my “Prodigy is the Roughest” sign when the Queensbridge native was released in early March. Dog Sh*t featuring Nas, Mobb Deep’s first official single since Prodigy‘s emancipation, satisfies that need for rude, crypt-keeper, concrete rap music. Three years down didn’t take the edge off of Prodigy’s delivery as he reinstates his position as one of the East Coast’s original gangsta rappers while Havoc still flows like an infamous lyricist as his sound reflects his 1995 presentation: gutter. Adding hip-hop vet Nas to the Alchemist and Havoc-produced beat is only a plus to the nightmare-on-59th-Street sound that has bodied headphones for the past 15 years. While there is no set album date just yet from the duo, you can trust the Booth to stay connected to new music. In the meantime, fans can check out Love Y’all More, which Mobb Deep dropped a week after Prodigy was released from prison.
