Published Dec 20, 2013Mobb Deep's long-in-the-works new album has a name now, and it's a pretty familiar one. Titled The Infamous Mobb Deep, the record will feature new tunes and tracks left over from their The Infamous sessions in the '90s.
Prodigy and Havoc confirmed in an interview with Huffington Post that the new record arrives sometime in March and will be packaged up as a two-CD release. One disc will feature all-new material, marking their first LP since 2006's Blood Money, while a secondary disc will host unheard tracks recorded at the same time as their classic 1995 sophomore set The Infamous.
"We're gonna have special packaging, and we got like 10 unreleased songs from The Infamous album," Prodigy confirmed.
Though particular song details were not given, Prodigy added that the unearthed tracks will also feature bars from the likes of Raekwon, Nas and Ghostface Killah. As previously reported, Mobb Deep had hinted that Earl Sweatshirt could make it onto the newer tracks, but nothing has been set in stone just yet.
"We been talking about doing a collab with Earl, but it ain't happened yet," Prodigy said, shortly after explaining that the Odd Future member used to skateboard with his son out in California.
Along with the new album reveal, Mobb Deep rolled out a U.S. spring tour, which has them travelling all across the U.S. While there are no dates in Canada, you can see the tour schedule here.
