It’s been a long time coming for Mobb Deep fans, but now there is something to look forward too as the Queens duo of Prodigy and Havoc plan to release a new EP on Black Friday (November 25th) as a prelude to the groups long awaited full length album and follow-up to their 2007 release Blood Money.
In a interview with XXL Magazine, Mobb Deep made the announcement of the EP, as one half of the Mobb, Havoc says:
“We have an EP coming on Black Friday”
“We didn’t come up with a title yet, but we’ll have a title that will mean something. It will be like seven or eight songs. I did like three. We have some produced by J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League, Alchemist and this kid named Young Free.”
As Defsounds previously reported, Mobb Deep recently inked a deal with Sony’s RED Distribution; Havoc touches on the new venture:
“It feels good man. It’s a long time coming. Now we could really be in control of our own destiny. It’s all on us now. For right now we’re gonna focus on the Mobb. But the label situation is set up to break other acts. We’re gonna be versatile with it. We’re not gonna just get the homie from up the block. We’re gonna get talent. We’re definitely serious about it.”
Hav added that the duo thought about re-signing with G-Unit:
“That was definitely something we all were considering. We sat down with 50. At the end of the day, us and 50 are still cool. We’re good. But what everybody concluded was that [we] need to go do [our] own thing with no restraints. That was the best decision everybody could have made. The EP is done. It sounds good, seven or eight songs. Some real hip-hop shit, some real substance.”
The still untitled EP will contain 6 or 7 new tracks, and will be Mobb Deep’s first ever released EP which will be a prelude to their forthcoming self-titled album.
