Boi-1da is among those who will be producing material with Havoc for Mobb Deep’s forthcoming The Infamous Mobb Deep album.
“It’s new-age with that old Mobb twist to it,” the Toronto producer says during an interview with vibe.com. “I was a big fan of Mobb Deep and Havoc’s production, so I just reached out and me and him have been producing records together, sending stuff back and forth. I can say that I have some records on the new Mobb Deep album that me and Havoc did together. It’s something I knocked off my bucket list.”
Mobb Deep announced its The Infamous Mobb Deep album and tour last month. Havoc and Prodigy are slated to release the double album through Infamous Records/Red in March, according to Prodigy. The collection is scheduled to include unreleased selections from the group’s 1995 sessions while crafting its The Infamous album, according to a press release. The project is slated to include a digitally re-mastered version of The Infamous and a new self-titled album.
“We’re gonna have special packaging and we’ve got like 10 unreleased songs from The Infamous album,” Prodigy said on Huffington Post. “Verses nobody’s ever heard before from Raekwon, Nas, Ghostface [Killah], our verses. It’s crazy.”
