[artist id="401"]Mobb Deep[/artist] have quite a few notable collaborations with rap heavyweights like [artist id="860639"]50 Cent[/artist], Lil Kim and Raekwon, but when it comes to chemistry, their in-studio vibe with [artist id="1000"]Nas[/artist] is unmatched.
The Queens rap duo appeared on Wednesday’s (October 26) “RapFix Live,” and confirmed to host Sway that they will once again be hooking up with God’s Son on their upcoming November EP, Black Cocaine.
“We got Nas on the album, we got Bounty Killer on there — that’s it so far,” Prodigy said. “It’s just like a warm-up project, so we didn’t want to put too many people on there. It’s just a Mobb Deep thing, really.”
Dancehall star Bounty Killer appears on the menacing “Dead Man’s Shoes” and Nas on an unnamed track. “We worked with Nas because that’s the home team,” Prodigy said. “I know people miss hearing that Mobb Deep/ Nas collaboration, because every time we do a song, it always comes out real good and stands the test of time, always.”
In April, shortly after Prodigy was released from his three-year prison bid, Esco and the Mobb hooked up for the Alchemist-produced “Dog Sh–,” but before they could get together on a song, Prodigy and Nas had to iron out some minor differences. “Yeah, it was a little something, but it wasn’t nothing serious,” P said. “It wasn’t serious enough for us to just stop making music together and stop hanging out and messing with each other.”
Upon getting home, Prodigy — who wrote about his up-and-down relationship with Nas in his book, “My Infamous Life” — gave Nas a call to patch things up.
“Different personalities clash sometimes, but when you’re family, nothing’s stronger than that bond,” Havoc said. “I feel like Nas is like family, so we can get through whatever.”
