Prodigy, half of the Queens duo Mobb Deep, is promising that the group will release a new album this year. While hanging out backstage at the Las Vegas stop of Rock the Bells, he told Bootleg Kev that not only in the album happening, but the first single will be released soon. According to HipHopDX, Prodigy said: “That’s the only thing we’re focusing on right now, the Mobb Deep album...it’ll be [out] before the new year. We ain’t letting nothing out the bag—just know, it’s that hard sh-t...[it’ll be] Al[chemist], Havoc, the home team, you know? Mobb Deep, you know how we always do it.”
This will be their ninth studio album. Havoc has previously said that the project will feature collaborations with Nas, Wiz Khalifa, Odd Future, Lil Kim and possibly Rick Ross.
