(AllHipHop News) Veteran hip-hop duo Mobb Deep will celebrate the release of their new EP Black Cocaine with a star-studded release party in New York next week.
The group will perform new material from Black Cocaine at B.B. Kings in Times Square, on November 22 during the party, which will feature Mister Cee on the turntables.
Mobb Deep will also debut new, previously unheard material from their upcoming album, which is due in 2012.
The performance marks the first time in over five years that Mobb Deep has performed new material together.
The group was sidelined from January of 2008 until March of 2011, as Prodigy finished a three-year federal prison sentence for weapons possession.
“For the first time in five years, we are going to hit the stage with some new music. We never performed tracks from the new EP Black Cocaine before” Prodigy told AllHipHop.com. “New York is home, this is our foundation. There’s no better place to present our new live show.”
Mobb Deep has teamed with AllHipHop.com to stream the Black Cocaine release party so fans around the world who cannot attend the event in New York, can still enjoy the show.
“It’s always great to perform in New York” added Havoc. “Presenting new music in New York makes it even more of a special event for us.”
AllHipHop.com’s Mobb Deep release party for Black Cocaine, which will also feature several surprise performances, takes place on November 22 at B.B. King’s.
Doors open at 9:00pm.
Black Cocaine is in stores November 21 via Mobb Deep’s label Infamous Records.
