In musical folklore, when musicians are said to have sold their souls to the devil, it’s typically in exchange for supernaturally-enhanced talents on their instrument of choice. Never lacking in microphone skills, Prodigy was more interested in the ability to rain fire and brimstone on his enemies. On the latest single off his forthcoming collaborative set with The Alchemist, the Mobb Deep member warns his competitors of the figurative and literal heatrocks that’ll be coming their way if they threaten his well-being. Alc goes for contrast behind the mixing boards, backing the emcee’s deadpan intimidation with a mellow, ear-pleasing mix of chopped vocal samples and resonant keys. Albert Einstein has yet to receive a solid drop date, but we’ll keep you supplied with release details, as well as the latest song releases.
