Editors’ Notes

One half of Queensbridge thug-rap legends Mobb Deep, Prodigy has long established himself as one of the coldest voices is the business through his brutal depictions of everyday gunplay and world-weary, casual yet focused delivery. Over the years he has appeared on many undeniable classics, alongside Havoc and various like-minded associates. Some old school fans abandoned the Mobb after their questionable flirtation with R&B on "Hey Luv," while others jumped ship when they hooked up with G Unit for the ill-fated Blood Money album. At a time when his credibility and relevance were seriously in doubt, Prodigy silenced all haters with Return of the Mac. Originally released as a mixtape, this is exactly what many disillusioned followers had been waiting for, a relentlessly grimy return to form, produced entirely by the Alchemist, who crafts 14 lush backdrops that are both ultra-funky and seriously hard. Squealing horns, wah-wah guitars and thundering drumbreaks set the stage for P's murder-murder kill-kill wordplay, and the two fit together like an icepick and the back of the neck.

FINALLY, I knew Prodig still had it in him. After seriously falling off since Jay bodied Mobb Deep at Summer Slam, they havent been to good, particularly Prodigy, since Havoc has managed and is dropping solid beats still.However, the once amazing lyricist needed something to spark him up, and this mixtape did it.Mac 10 Handle, which is sampled from DMX-Crime Story, is a masterpiece.If any of u listen to the Geto Boys, he borrowed the theme of the song from a line in My Mind Playing Tricks On Me.But, ironically, as Jay-Z once said "You Made it a hot line, I made it a hot Song." And ohh did Prodigy make it a hot song.I cant wait for HNIC 2 now, I hope this gets the streets talking...In the meantime, COP THIS


Mobb Deep's Prodigy is awesome a solo artist as he is with Havoc! 5 Stars.


This guy don't even make sense no more when he raps...go back to the infamous album, even rapper noid's album and dude is murdering the the track. now? sounds like an angry midget with a cotton ball in his mouth. what the deal p? you even care anymore? like we supposed to believe that after ten plus years you're still in the streets? c'mon man, your audience grew up son. we're either dead, in jail, or got real jobs, enouph with the streets. when is havoc's album gonna drop? that dude at least seems like he's got a head on his shoulders. doesn't play that ignorant thug role...the streets are watching, and they need glasses.

He returned to the solo arena in 2007 with Return of the Mac, a Koch release produced entirely by the Alchemist. H.N.I.C., Pt. 2 landed in 2008, just as the rapper was beginning a three-and-a-half-year sentence on unlawful gun possession charges.
