I'm not gonna front and say that Mobb Deep's Prodigy, once one of my favortie emcees ever, have dissapointed me gravely from time to time, his past merits and occassionally dope verses (e.g. Gangrene's "Dump Truck", Evidence's "Fame" and selected parts of the ALC produced tracks from "Albert Einstein" and even "HNIC 3") still makes me check for him from time to time. A positive track amongst those lines has just comen a long with a new ill remix from BBE/Yoruba producer Git Beats, who creates a dark and gritty soundbed for Mpire and a ill verse from Prodigy. The song is called "The Way I Do It (Git Beats Basement Ghost Remix)". This'll appear on a collaboration EP to be released between Mpire and Git Beats, set for early spring. As if that wasn't enough, Git Beats have a full-length LP with emcee Hubbs on the way for January called "Piece of Mind". Stay tuned!
In further Mobb Deep news, Prodigy and Havoc has once again hooked up for a "new" song, which is being released by Nature Sounds on a limited 7" vinyl. The song in question is a remix of "Life We Chose", originally a track from Havoc's "13" album that originally featured a verse from Lloyd Banks. The new version is called The Mobb Deep remix and since we are not offered even a snippet I'm not sure if there's also a new beat accompanying the new verses, but if you order the 7" please let us know!
