Published Sep 02, 2011Earlier this year, New York rap legends Mobb Deep teamed up with Nas for the track "Dog Shit," suggesting that they would be hitting the studio hard this year for their first album since 2006's Blood Money. Now, more details have emerged on the group's ninth album.
The record will be self-titled, and will also be the first Mobb Deep release under a new deal struck between their own Infamous Records and RED Distribution, Sony's independent distribution arm.
In a press release, Mobb Deep's Prodigy said, "After almost 20 years in this industry, it was inevitable for us to take matters into our own hands. We feel that RED is the perfect home for our brand... We know who our fans are and what they want from Mobb Deep. We're excited to take a new step in our career."
RED President Bob Morelli added to the love-in, saying, "Mobb Deep is an iconic act, having been on the cutting edge of music and social commentary for years. We are happy and excited to distribute the next chapter in their musical career."
