Queensbridge unite! Last night during a press conference for Rock the Bells 2011, Mobb Deep’s Havoc told HipHopDX that he, Prodigy and Nas will be working on a joint album.
"We’re gonna do a Mobb Deep and Nas album. It hasn’t begun but we tipped the iceberg a little bit with the 'Dog Sh--.' I think as we was working, doing songs back and forth with Nas recently, I think it was just a mutual thought, like, 'Yo, let’s make a f---ing album.' Everybody was like, 'Yeah, that would be dope. F--- it, what we waiting for? Let’s do it.'"
The Queensbridge MCs have recently collaborated on “Dog Sh--t," a track recorded and released after Pee and the Illmatic rapper settled their differences. When MTV News caught up with Mobb Deep in mid May, Prodigy said that fans can expect more music from Nas and M-O-B-B. "We put that aside and was like, 'All right, let's start doin' some music.' We had the 'Dog Sh--' and made a couple of other joints that's crazy," he said.
Sway also sat down with Nas a few days later and asked about the possibility of any more Mobb collaborations beyond the already leaked “Dog Sh--,” but during that interview Nas didn’t commit, citing that his upcoming solo album is his priority. "At the moment, I just got back into the studio, and my focus right now has been just starting to work on the album, so who knows?" he said.
Check back with RapFix and MTV News for more details as they unfold.
