Havoc of Mobb Deep has confirmed that a new album is coming “before the end of the year.”
Havoc was a guest on MSNBC’s “The Beat with Ari Melber” to talk music when the host asked him if new music was coming from the legendary duo from Queens.
“The way I’m reflecting on it is I’m just trying to keep the legacy alive,” Havoc answered. “I’m actually currently working on the new album in conjunction with the family. Before the end of the year it’ll be out.”
This was one of the few times Havoc has spoken since the death of his friend and fellow group member Prodigy.
Are you glad to hear that a new Mob Deep project is on the way?
2. Craig Mack Dead at 46
Sad news in the world of hip hop. One of the original members of the Bad Boy label, Craig Mack, has passed away at 46.
Mack gave Bad Boy it’s first hit with his classic “Flava in Ya Ear.” After the success of the original, the remix launched the career of Notorious BIG, whose debut album outsold Craig’s “Project Funk Da World.”
Mack separated from Bad Boy in 1996 to limited success with his next album, “Project Get Down.” Later, Mack left the world of hip hop and had become a pastor in Walterboro, SC.
His song “Flava in Ya Ear” has seen a resurgence after being heard as a motivational song in a car ad. His passing was confirmed by fellow rap artists that knew him well like Funk Flex, Biz Markie, and DJ Scratch.
3. Juelz Santana Has Turned Himself In
After running away when a gun was found in his carry-on luggage, Juelz Santana has turned himself in for the incident that happened at Newark Airport.
A few days ago Juelz was about to board a plane when TSA agents discovered a gun in a bag that belonged to the Harlem rapper.
Once the gun was found Santana ran from the security checkpoint leaving two bags, his ID, and his boarding pass behind.
Do you think Santana made his situation even worse by running from the scene? Have you ever been caught up at the airport?
