Mobb Deep to Collaborate with Rick Ross

Prodigy tells MTV that the Mobb recently linked up with Rick Ross for a new song.

Last night at Hot 97’s annual Summer Jam concert, G-Unit soldier Lloyd Banks brought out fellow Queens rhymers Prodigy and Havoc of Mobb Deep for a performance of their classic song “Shook Ones Pt. II.” During the event, MTV caught up with Prodigy, where he revealed that the Mobb had recently linked up with Summer Jam 2011 headliner Rick Ross for a collaboration.

Don P explained to MTV News that the Infamous/Rozay collab was already in the can. He said that Havoc and he are planning to unleash the track on the duo’s next LP, which they are planning to release later this year.

"We did a joint with Ross,” said P. “It's in the stash right now. It'll probably be for the Mobb album. It's kinda crazy too…We're looking forward to maybe, like, September. End of August, September - we're shooting for around that time. We know they need that new music out there, something for the streets. We gotta feed the streets."

Prodigy also added, “It's a lot of different things happening in hip-hop. That's a good thing. You got different types of sounds, but you know we gotta keep what makes us going. We gotta keep our sound alive, that dark Hip Hop. We're gonna keep that alive."

Rick Ross also talked about his respect for P during a visit to RapFix Live on May 25. He said that not only does he enjoy Prodigy and Havoc’s music, but that he also appreciated Prodigy reaching out to southern artists, particularly former Cash Money rapper B.G. on H.N.I.C.’s “Y.B.E.”

"I respect him, most definitely, as being a boss, making your own decisions," said Ross. "When he was released, he gave me a call a few days after that. We spoke on the phone maybe once or twice. It was a genuine conversation, us touching base, making sure it is what it is. We most definitely put a record or two on the table. Just to be frank, I was always a fan of the homey, H.N.I.C. I always respected when I saw that. The B.G. collaboration he did with the South, that was big for me. So I was always a fan of the homey and when he made this move in a way, so you had to respect it. So look for a Rozay and Prodigy record in the future."

    "you have got to be fuckin kiddin me. Really?? Really, Prodigy?? I have just LOST SOO much respect for Mobb Deep I can't even explain it. First of all, you're Mobb Deep, one of the realest groups ever, and you're gonna do a song with Officer Ross?? HUH?? SECOND OF ALL, you're crew is G-UNIT???? 50 is ALL ABOUT loyalty, how the fuck is this supposed to fly?!! Prodigy, you done fucked up for real dog. WTF are you thinking??? Great way to tarnish your legacy, stupid fuck." SO TRUE!!!

  • Bowski

    Wow so much hate but we can't justloose it just yet ya'll. Look I feel a lil tight about the collab too but wait, P just said the 2 magic words I've been waiting to hear, "Dark Music". That's all I wanted to hear, now maybe just maybe they might force Rick Ross to step up his bars and spit some realness within this caliber of mc's. It might not be all bad, although on the flip side they might be doing this because Ross is a money making attraction & they basically want in like when they signed to G-Unit. They better not mess w/Lex Luger for beats or nothing like that though, I'm still holding onto an ounce of hope.

    I've lost faith in Mobb Deep after Murda Muzik but then Prodigy spent time in jail and he was talking about hooking up with Nas again to make classic music but the first song released "Dog Shit" was horrible the flow is too slow the lyrics are little above average just because the average is worse then normal. Now a track with Rick Ross just lost all of my interest in their comeback. Rick Ross is a perect example of whats wrong with hip hop, his rhymes are simple, his flow is so slow and the beats used are simple easy beats that are bad. R.I.P. the good days of Mobb Deep (The Infamous, Hell on Earth)

      Exactly, man...doin tracks with who is "supposedly hot at the time" just looks desperate. And to make it 100 times worse, you try and link up with Rick Ross? Huh???? How is this even happening?? How is 50 okay with this? What the FUCK is wrong with Prodigy, man..I don't understand it. NONE of this makes sense.

    • Dessalines Isaac

      It's called maturity and unity, something that was at an all-time low when 50Cent was relevant. it's good to see artists putting their differences aside in order to bring music to their fans. The rich and successful seldom concern themselves with trivial and minor things like stans/fans do.

  • Anonymous

    mob deep much blessing but really these cats had there time to shine,so why are people puting so much attention to there situation pun intended.they got a great catalog but really who cares.rick ross is a good artist so i see why they would hook up to do a record.these people are only human yall there mistakes,lies,deceit,whatever is only a product of being in the flesh no man is perfect we all have done things in are life that we are ashamed or should be ashamed of.blessings to the mind of people on this earth because mentally we really go backwards when we think a man should be

      Because P just got out, and people are excited about new music from them. That's kind of obvious isn't it?

  • BrowardFuckinCounty

    Was this a condition of P's parole? That he has to make records with prison guards? Smh... Fuck "Rick Ross"... faggot ass, jive ass motherfuckin' pig. Nigga makes South Florida look like shit. How niggas gon' kill Pac and Biggie, and let this bitch ass nigga walk around???



  • BigDan

    Damn, these cats ain't bout to kick 50 in the gut by signing to Maybach are they? Just them doing a song with Officer Ricky has to give 50 indigestion.
