Prodigy Declares Mobb Deep "Free Agents"

Rapper also clarifies the duo's current status regarding G-Unit.

It’s been almost exactly five years since the world received a new album from Mobb Deep, the Queens, New York duo comprised of Prodigy and Havoc. In the time since 2006’s Blood Money the duo have released solo material and had run-ins with the law. But now it seems as if there is some serious activity going on within the group. The first sign is their new web series “Start of Ur Ending.” The first episode has just been uploaded to Vimeo. In it Prodigy offers some insight on Mobb Deep's current label status.

The emcee explains, “When 50 [Cent] took G-Unit [Records] off of Interscope [Records] and took it somewhere else, in that in between space, where there wasn’t no deal, the clause in our contract set us free. So, basically, we’re free agents right now. I’ve been talking to 50, we’ve been kicking it with son, and he definitely wants to continue doing business. We’re just weighing our options, seeing what we really want to do, seeing how we want to move forward, see what’s the best route for us to take. Because that’s what it’s all about, just making that best business move, wherever that may be. My focus is incredible right now because I got a lot of catching up to do, with money, the game, and just music and everything. I was missing for a little while so I got a little showing and proving to do to show that I deserve my spot, that Mobb Deep deserves their position in the game."

The duo has had a pretty eventful past regarding labels. Through their career they’ve signed papers with Loud Records, 4th and Broadway Records, RCA Records, and G-Unit. So it’s safe to say, knowing their history and experience with the industry, that group will be careful when they choose their next label. Check out the full episode "Start of Ur Ending" below.

    Get the hell away from Gay unit.

    Sign with H2O Raekwon's label, they have him and CNN, Mobb Deep would fit in perfectly and that way labels won't ruin the album cause it's independent. Eye for an Eye, Extortion, Nighttime Vultures, Right Back at You all great songs that are collabos with Wu members and you get that if signed to H2O.

      I don't get what people like you are getting from cock-sucking. It's called an opinion, you fucking dumb ass nigga. And now, go, it's time to suck off another man's dick. Critic on prodigy must've hurt your feelings real hard. I bet you're an ugly ass midget yourself who got raped in jail, is close to 40 and lives in a delusional gangster dream. Jay and Nas already destroyed this close-minded faggot.

    They should definitely sign with Raekwon's IceH20 label. Rae's been putting out some heat lately and he could really help them out.

      Fuck outta here with Return Of The Mac and Kush, don't mention projects which are years old. No wonder you weren't speaking about Hidden Files or the EP cause both were whack as fuck. P is over. I can't imagine another icon of the 90's who fall off that badly. BTW, your shit is garbage, try to get a P feature, you fucking lame.

  • ONE TIME U WERE GOOD, BUT NOT ANYMORE

    WELL I DONT THINK U CAN MOVE FORWARD AND GAIN ANY REVENUE IN HIP HOP TODAY, ITS NOT LIKE IT WAS BACK IN 1995. I THINK U SHOULD JUST DO SOMETHING ELSE BESIDES HIPHOP, P. U ONLY SELL 10,000 ALBUMS, NOT ENOUGH TO PROFIT FROM SINCE U GOTTA PAY BACK THE LABELS. YOUR FAN BASE AINT THE SAME AND NOBODYS BUYS CDS NO MORE. PLUS JAY Z BURIED YOU SIX FEET DEEP WITH TAKEOVER, WHICH WAS WHEN MOBB DEEP FELL APART AND EVER SINCE THEN, TRIED TO COME BACK FROM THAT DEFEAT. HANG UP THE MIC P. UR NOT SPECIAL ANYMORE. NIGGAZ JUST DOWNLOAD SHIT, U WONT MAKE ANY PROFIT. NOW GO MAKE MY BURGER

      Well said Sensaye252. I mean some of these cats come on this site and spaz out on a personal tip rather than focusing their comments on a general perspective. Even if it is on a personal tip, I'd rather they make that clear rather than commenting as if they're dropping facts. What kills me is that over half the time they're ranting about things that have NOTHING to do w/the article in the 1st place; so bad that you forget what the hell the article is about, like in this case. I'm no "Internet Thug", but some people's mentality just make it hard to for me to believe that the Hip Hop community can REALLY move forward, you know show some maturity for Christ's sakes. This dude is a obviously a moron....

    • Sensaye252

      NOT EVERYBODY IS AS DUMB AS YOU HOMEY. SOME PEOPLE ACTUALLY STILL SUPPORT LYRICISTS AND can write a paragraph without putting everything in caps. I know simple minded idiots would love to see real lyricists get blackballed from Hip-Hop, but as long as there's still people with half a brain, there will be a resistance against nationwide ignorance. Now go make my burger, because no profession adult writes like that.

    • BONE

      Yeah he fucked up saying that bull-shit, he need to get the east collabos 1st. Wu, Nas, D-block and Dipset, or Cormega. They need to redeem that bull-shit blood money album too. I'd like to hear them with Kool G Rap or Rakim again too. One!
