Rap veterans Mobb Deep have announced the release date for the inaugural album from their new record label, Infamous Records.
The group’s new EP Black Cocaine will be released in two different versions.
One version will be released as a five song limited edition EP, while a deluxe seven song version will be available exclusively for off-line retailers.
“We wanted to give something to the fans that have been waiting for new Mobb Deep music,” Prodigy told AllHipHop.com in a statement released today (November 14).
Fans of Mobb Deep should purchase the album as soon as possible: both editions will be a one-time print run until stock runs out at all retail outlets.
“This limited edition EP is a collectors’ item for die hard Mobb Deep fans,” Havoc said.
The Black Cocaine limited edition EP is available everywhere on November 21, while the deluxe seven song limited edition EP is available only at indie retailers on November 25.
Mobb Deep’s new untitled full length album is due in the first quarter of 2012.
The album will be released as part of the group’s new deal for Infamous Records, which is being distributed by Sony/Red.
Fans of Mobb Deep can check out the group on November 22, during an upcoming hour-long live interview and performance on SiriusFM’s Shade 45 show “Sway In The Morning,” with MTV’s Sway Calloway.
