Feel like hearing two Great Spitters go in over a dope beat? If you didn’t answer that with a resounding “Yes,” then… uh… I’m not sure how you ended up at The DJBooth. Assuming you are a fan of quality rhymes, however, single number two off Prodigy‘s forthcoming street album should be right up your alley. Premiered today by our friends over at Complex, this joint sees the Big Apple underground mainstay coming together with Young Money signee and reality star Cory Gunz for an exhibition of mic-rocking excellence. Over Mobb Deep colleague Havoc‘s beat, a tuneful yet hard-hitting blend of strings, tension-fraught bell arpeggios and head-noddable percussion, Prodigy dubs himself a “rhymin’ expert” in bars so ill they render the assertion redundant. Gunz takes over on the back end, shouting-out his “n*ggas on lock doin’ time” and resolving to give his little brother a better life in a gymnastically-flowed closing 16. Feeling it? Then stay tuned for further details on Prodigy’s as yet unscheduled solo mixtape, H.N.I.C. 3. Additionally, fans who are in Austin, Texas for SXSW will be able to catch both members of Mobb Deep rocking the stage at the Booth’s own March 17, showcase; keep it locked for further details!
