Mobb Deep say they are just a few days away from announcing their new record deal and a few months away from putting out a new album.
“Hopefully if not [this year], early next year,” Havoc told XXLMag.com when asked when him and Prodigy’s next LP would be released.
In the meantime, the duo will be dropping off a gift strictly for the streets.
“We’re gonna be doing a mixtape and stuff like that,” Hav added. “We’re gonna be dropping a new song in a few days. It’s gonna be nice!”
Since Prodigy came home earlier this year after serving three years in prison for a gun possession charge he and Hav been recording endlessly.
“We’re almost done,” P said of the Mobb album. “Amazing. That’s the best way to describe it. We touch on everything. Real life sh*t that we’re going through.
“We got some surprise guest [producers] on there,” he added. As of the cameo appearances, Prodigy simply replied “We got some surprises with that too.”
“We have new producers,” Hollywood Hav continued. “Of course sh*t from me, sh*t from Alchemist. Definitely what you’d expect from us but on a newer level.”
“He’s up to par,” Prodigy beamed of his partner’s production. “He ain’t miss a step. [When I came home] He had sh*t in the stash and there was new sh*t he was making.”
Although Hav and P have been making songs together since they were teens in the early 1990s, there “definitely was a difference” recording there latest batch of music, Havoc says.
“We’re more thirsty to do it,” the Queensbridge native elaborated. [Prodigy's] been gone for a minute, so now when we get in, I be thirsty.”
The Mobb are currently on a tour with Wu-Tang members Raekwon and Ghostface and are also a part of this year’s Rock The Bells festival with Nas, Erykah Badu and Ms. Lauryn Hill, among others.
“Everything is good,” P said of the concerts so-far.. “We’re doing a lot of shows. They’re Hot. We’re killing them every night.”
As for if any songs will come with their tour mates such as Wu-Tang or Nas, P promised, “We’re collaborating with everybody. You’re gonna hear all of that.”
