All the BS aside, <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/prodigy">Prodigy</a> is one of my favorites and Mobb Deep is, in my ears, the greatest duo to grace the Hip-Hop stage.
<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/supreme">Supreme</a> will release four new t-shirt designs this week including two designed by skater/artist Lance Mountain and one of their classic photo op shirts featuring Mobb member Prodigy.

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2011/05/the-30-day-song-challenge-day-13-%e2%80%93-a-song-thats-a-guilty-pleasure"> Not too far removed from the bus returning him to the free world, Prodigy uses <a href="http://twitter.com/PRODIGYMOBBDEEP/status/72149321633632256">Twitter</a> to uncuff a track full of thug love bars over Frank Ocean's "Novacane.
I’ll always have a soft spot for <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/prodigy">Prodigy</a> (||).
<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/?p=187559"> Tony Yayo links up with Mobb Deep to deliver a few gully quotables on "Body Bag." These are simple visuals for no-frills rap, just three professionals stepping to the microphone to spit. Yayo, while still far from an incredible emcee, is enjoyable here and Havoc comes strong as well. But it's Prodigy, coming through with the anchor verse, who steals the track. The man's come out of prison sharp - see his verses on <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WsnUeAvN0RM">"Black Devil,"</a> from his recently released Ellsworth Bumpy Johnson EP and Curren$y's <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XvJDdxnH2xk">"The Type"</a> for evidence of that - and his effort here continues that trend.
<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2011/04/new-music-mobb-deep-feat-nas-dog-shit"> Fresh out the cell block to dusting off his writer's block, the Infamous is back in the house once again to drop gems in the name of Frank Lucas' alleged mentor. The Ellsworth Bumpy Johnson Story EP is Prodigy's formal introduction to independence after serving nearly three years in the bing and he's got the "home team" in his corner for a short and sweet familiarization to the outside. With Alchemist, Sid Roams, <a href="http://www.complex.com/music/2011/04/download-prodigy-ellsworth-bumpy-johnson-ep">Complex</a> and Havoc celebrating the newfound parolee, one of rap's O.
<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/?p=181030"> With The Alchemist & Havoc on the boards, "Dog Sh*t" finds the Mobb officially back together again since P's prison release. Nas pops up with a wicked verse to cap off the track. And yeah, it's good to hear Prodigy but the star of the track may be Nasir. There's a certain urgency and edge in his bars that may have been there prior, but it sounds more tenacious when he's back with the old QB gang. I love it when he spits these detailed verses and stays on topic throughout a verse instead of reeling off seemingly unconnected lines. Props: <a href="http://www.clockwork-music.com/">Clockwork</a>.
<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2011/03/new-music-havoc-back-on-my-bullshxt"> Eleven days after Prodigy ditched his state issued six (or seven) digit identification number, the first evidence of audio normalcy presents itself. Like the song suggests, sometimes taking a "step back" is actually taking a "step forward" as both Hav and P sound re-energized, re-dedicated and in love with the art form over this soulful number from their brother-in-music, Alchemist. "Love Y'all More" is a calculated chess move from all involved to inseminate the group into the brain waves of those who may have forgotten about them during their federally mandated separation and those who remained down during the duo's darkest days. Give me more of this from the Mobb and give me more of this from Alchemist. I'm not ready to proclaim them "back" as of right now. Remember, I had <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2009/08/shyne-to-be-released-on-october-6">high hopes for Shyne's</a> musical career upon his release too.
