Havoc Speaks On Coming Up In Queensbridge, Mobb Deep, And Losing Prodigy (Video)

RIP Prodigy for real. And if anyone, ANYONE, should be heard on that, it’s Havoc. They have been through it in all ways – on the come up, after the Mobb fame wave ebbed, falling out with each other, squashing the beef finally, and then… damn.

After the untimely death of Prodigy, DJ Vlad sits down with his longtime friend and the other half of Mobb Deep, Havoc. Havoc details what it was like growing up in Queensbridge, their first rap names, and reveals Prodigy turned down a deal to work with him at first. The producer then goes on to talk about making their first album, Prodigy teaching him how to sample and them getting a deal at LOUD records.

Throughout the conversation Havoc discusses some of the milestones in their career from the ‘Hennesy’ shirts, creating “Shook Ones,” dissing 2Pac before his death, their beef with Jay-Z, and what it was like seeing Lil Kim write her “Quiet Storm” verse. Hav also speaks on the rumor of P choking on an egg and the cause of his death before looking back on the legacy that they left in Hip-Hop.

Listen to Havoc pay respect to his brother above.

DJ Jaycee – “Dun Language, 6.23.17” (Mixtape)

Nowww, we talking the “Dun Language” dun-dun! Radio waves that carry that real Hip-Hop stood up and saluted with mixes when news of Prodigy’s passing got out. But I was wondering where the groundswell of dedication mixes for the Q-Boro great would get so large it would wash up on the beach at my feet; so to speak. Welp, it happened. DJ Jaycee MADE them shiz happen; recording a dedicated “Eargasms” session for the Mobb Deep emcee! Respect.

on today’s episode of “Eargasms” i paid my respects to Prodigy of Mobb Deep, who lost his long hard fought battle against sickle cell anemia earlier this week. in this mix are all sorts of classics, album cuts, and rarities from his solo ventures as well as the Mobb discography. throw on some army fatigues, lace up your Timbs and enjoy them…
