Mobb Deep fans
will get a double helping of music from one half of the veteran duo as Prodigy
gears up for the release of two solo albums.The
first release, titled Return of the Mac, will re-team the Queens lyricist
with producer The Alchemist. The beatmaker, who recently worked with Eminem on
The Re-Up Mixtape, crafted beats for every song on the album.Return
of the Mac will serve as prelude to Prodigy's next project H.N.I.C.2,
an effort in which the rapper vows to "turn it up hot."Both
albums will be released on Koch Records, the rapper added. "I
decided to ride with Koch Records cause I got a lot of sh*t to do and say, and
I know Koch won't hold me back or censor my sh*t plus the entire company will
push the CDs to the maximum because they truly love and respect my music,"
Prodigy said. "We're all very excited about the whole thing."H.N.I.C.2
will be the follow up to Prodigy's gold debut release H.N.I.C., which spawned
the hit single "Keep It Thoro."The
albums are the latest musical offerings from Prodigy, who has released a string
up albums with his partner Havoc as part of Mobb Deep. To
date, group has sold more than 4 million records.Plans
are currently underway to film a video for "Stuck On You," the first
single from Return of the Mac. Those
