Hip-Hop Rumors: Sources Say Mobb Deep Will Never Put Out Another Album

Say it ain’t so!!! Even though Havoc has denied sending out the disparaging tweets about Prodigy,  it’s starting to look more and more like he may have indeed done it.
According to a source who works closely with Mobb Deep, tension has been building between Havoc and Prodigy for some time now. Prodigy was locked up from 2007 through 2011, serving a three-and-a-half-year gun charge sentence, and was determined to stay out of trouble when he came home; he stopped drinking and smoking and hit the gym.

“While he was up there, 50 Cent came to visit a couple times,” the source said. “And 50 had came to him and said, ‘Listen, man, when you come home, I wanna sign you as a solo artist. I’m gonna give you a $500,000 advance check, but I’m not fuckin’ with Havoc because Havoc has been dealin’ with alcohol issues for years. Since you’ve been in jail, he’s checked in to rehab a few times.” Mobb Deep had previously been signed to G-Unit from 2005 through 2009. With three months to go in his sentence, Havoc still hadn’t visited Prodigy, and though the G-Unit offer was enticing, P was willing to give Mobb Deep another chance if Hav visited him before he was released.

“A week before [Prodigy] comes home, Havoc finally shows up,” the source continued. “[He says], ‘Yo, listen, I’m sorry, man. I’ve been battlin’ alcohol again. I just came out of rehab. I really wanna work again. Let’s get money.’” Prodigy was open to getting back to work with his longtime comrade. He was released in March 2011, and the next month dropped his autobiography, My Infamous Life: The Autobiography of Mobb Deep’s Prodigy. P and Hav hit the studio a few times—even releasing the Black Cocaine EP in November—but the two rarely interacted. “The only time Prodigy would see him was before a show—at the airport or however they’re gonna get there,” the source said.

Citing one instance in particular, the source says Havoc spent $20,000 at a casino, but didn’t remember the next day because he had been drinking heavily. “When he went into the account, the money was gone,” the source recalled. “He forgot because he has these little blackout moments when he’s drunk—that he spent all the money gamblin’. He accused Prodigy’s manager [of] stealin’ the money out of his account. So he knocks on Prodigy’s door, he smacks Prodigy across the face, Prodigy wrestles him down, beats him up a little bit. After, he remembers that he was gamblin’, so he comes back to Prodigy and apologizes and all that. But at this point, Prodigy is already tellin’ me and my other friend, ‘Yo, this is the last Mobb Deep tour. When I get back to New York, I’m gonna disappear. I’m not fuckin’ with H no more.’”

Havoc referenced an altercation on Twitter earlier this week, writing, “I had to smack P, ask him.”

The Infamous Mobb hit SXSW in Austin for the first time last month, and though they performed multiple times, the tension was continuing to mount. “When he got back to New York, Prodigy kept his word,” the source said. “He stopped takin’ Havoc’s calls. He wanted to be out that whole situation.” The source also denied accusations that Havoc questioned Prodigy’s sexuality, and said it’s highly unlikely that the two will work together again. “To be honest with you, there’s 120 percent certainty that there will never be another Mobb Deep album again,” the source concluded. “How do you come back from that?”

    So I’m reading this and thinking, wow, gotta give the kid Sydney props for FINALLY writing a decent column.  Then I though, this is too good to be true.  So i googled a bunch of the text and low and behold WE PLAGIARIZE NOW!  Yup, ver-fuckin-batum.  XXLmag dot com posted the same story about 99% word for word two hours before illsee… No, Sydney Lace did.  Pretty samefull shit.  If I can look at this and realize in about 3 seconds that Lace didnt write this, why cant the editors?  SMFH.  

    • immackulate

      boy you a cold piece of game … LLAMF

    • MrTroyMercy

      Took this article from hiphopdx. But good shit .

  • Whatever son, “Return of The Mac” was one of P’s best and Alchemist produced the whole thing. At this point I just want Havoc to stop rapping on tracks so I can hear P anyways. 

  • Big Crimes

    after all this “did he or didn’t he tweet that” no one has mentioned that Prodigy replied @ him…. that being said, Prodigy can do some damage as an emcee and Havoc, he can do some damage as a producer at least, and if they go their separate ways… so be it

  • immackulate

    this is a slanted view cuz its coming from “Ballerina P’s” close associate

    let me hear HAV’s side … then i wanna hear them “jail niggahs” side too

    • @Prescott_Racks

      my two pages pale in comparison to the allhiphop rumor bible youve scripted from ur countless post. ur on every post my dude! how do u do it please tell us ur ancient secret masta. btw u know how i found ya boi! u got it bad for this half ass blogger ill give u an a for attrition though

      • immackulate

  • Soulgasm

    Good ish, Sydney Lace (can’t believe I just typed that)!  But, I have to give props when they’re do.  This is a really good story, and very well reported.  Props….

  • I really don’t think they were going to make a full comeback anyway.  Good luck to them though.  I think Havoc is still a good producer but I’m not sure how many people are checkin for Mobb Deep bein the rap climate has changed so much.

  • Mobb Deep is a hip-hop institution. I grew up listening to these dudes. I would hate to see hip-hop take an “L” like this.

  • Baby_Bluez

    This is bad… After 20 years in, you can’t tell me The Bridge is officially over. This was the last we had outta The Bridge. Gotta destroy & rebuild I guess…

    • they aint from the BRIDGE

  • Damn! Sydney got the ill scoop that we don’t wanna hear!

  • TruthSerum

    Prodigy sucks now and has for a long time, Havocs beats might not be what they use to be either  but he ainr fall off as bad as P

    I was listening to that Gangrene Featuring Prodigy joint “Dump Truck” and thinking to myself “How do you get outshined on the Mic by 2 producers who only rap part time”

    For real, ya’ll can lie to yourselves if you want but the truth is the truth. I bought Hell On Earth the day it dropped when I was 14, but I’m gonna be honest, P is horrible now and has been for about a decade

    • jamaicanbornanbreed

      • Roberto Ciamora

        LOL, typical nonsensical ranting and raving from an internet head



        Return of the Mack – Prodigy wasting an album full of alchemist beats with his downsyndrome flow

        You see, a guy like Cormega, he still has it, he doesnt rap slow as a retard and get outshined by producers on the Mic……… Prodigy spends his days trying to keep up with people he should be asking for beats in 2012, thats his career now, getting sonned by The Alchemist and Oh No, and for the record, Havoc has eaten his lunch on Every Mobb album since “Infamy”

        Prodigy now is like Roberto Duran when he was fighting in his late 40’s, trying to keep pace with people he coulda knocked out in the first round years ago. losing split decisions to nobodies and making us forget all about how good he USE TO BE

        Argue with it all you want, I dont need you to agree with me to know I’m right about it

      • Sosa_Limone

        iam glad u mentioned cormega… one of the most underrated rappers ever.. its sad that he never blew up  and has been foxy’s hypeman, because he can spit for days!! still hoping for a Firm reunion one day

      • D

        Mega is nice.. but most slept on award goes to AZ

      • Deep Roberto Duran analogy

      • jamaicanbornanbreed

        cant front nice analogy…and good name drop with mega…trying to impress me huh….well nice try…but i stil disagree…you mite of got more props if you would of mentioned tradegedy or my personal opinon one of the most slept on dudes in queens killa sha…..but back to business….havoc never ate p lunch on wax EVER…dat so called downsyndrome flow seemed to intwine magically with al’s soulful beats.and old school samples…u saying 7th heaven wasn’t dope..bang on em wasn’t bumping…or if aint one thing it’s another thing of dj absoute lp…c’mon brother u just typing cuz u got fingers u aint got no paperwork for whut u saying..who did p lose to…which one of these new niggas herbed p…when did he lose a split decison and to whom..on what tracks did havoc killed p..son u talking cuz u got lips ain’t nothing of real value coming out ur mouth…i’ll take back my gaga remark because apparently you knw a little about rap music but dats even more reason why dis shit is so shocking..u talking like dese new nuccas could trash p…..u knw damn well p would destroy niggas….my analogy in boxing terms for p…would be da great walker smith aka suger ray robinson who also at the end of his career struggling with those dat back in da past wouldn’t dare part take in the sweet science with such a god…but still fighting…and u knw whut they say about a puncher’s chance….at the end of da day i think we should agree to disagree..cuz i’m no internet head i’m a hip-hop head…a true fan of underground hip-hop so i’m constantly in the realm of i knw rhymes…and u proably think da we’ll leave it there

      • churchboy2

        …he said down syndrome flow.

        I feel bad for laughing but I did.

      • Maybe it’s just me , but their second album ( Shook ones pt 2, survival of the fittest , eye 4 an eye , etc, was their best work. Haven’t heard much since then & damn sure not another slamming album!

        I’m gonna hate on Roberto too , etc., but in reality , he’s kinda right!

      • You might need to give Murder Music another listen.

      • D

        Their best work

        1st “The Infamous”, 2nd “Infamy”, 3rd “Murda Musik”

        Then everything else after that was filler..

    • immackulate

  • CooL_KiD_305

  • Sydney?  how does it feel to get your most praise and comments on an article that you copied line for line from xxl?

  • I was gonna kill a couple rappers
    But they did it to themselves
    I was gon’ do it with the flow
    But they did it with their sales
    I was gon’ 9/11 ’em, but they didn’t need the help
    And they did a good job them boys is talented as hell
    Cuz not only did they brick they put a building up as well
    They ran a plane into that building and when that building fell
    Ran to the crash site with no masks and inhaled
    Toxins deep inside their lungs until both of them was filled
    Blew a cloud out like a L into a jar then took a smell
    Cuz they heard that second hand smoke kills
    Niggas thought they was ill found out they was…ILL
    And it’s like you knew exactly how I wanted you to feel
