About Mobb Deep

Originally calling themselves the Poetical Prophets, Havoc and Prodigy met while attending high school in New York City. The duo would work themselves up the rungs of the East Coast rap scene through their teens and into their twenties, their sound becoming the anthem of the East Coast rap revival.

Havoc, born Kejuan Muchita, focuses on production and beats for Mobb Deep. He also has produced for some of the biggest and most influential names in the industry, including Method Man, Eminem, Nas, Notorious B.I.G., Diddy, and LL Cool J. Havoc's hard hitting beats would become a signature part of Mobb Deep's style. Over the years Havoc would grow and incorporate a wider range of sounds and melodies into his work - including unconventional samples from classical works. He is known for his deep lyrics and heavy delivery.

Prodigy, born Albert Johnson, comes from a long history of musical pioneers. His great-uncle would push the Jazz genre to new limits, while his mother was part of the 1960s R&B band The Crystals. Through a friendship with well known rapper Nas and an early spot on the Boyz In The Hood movie soundtrack, Prodigy became a young but growing force on the hip hop scene during his teen years.

Known for their rivalry with other rap artists, and sometimes even each other, Mobb Deep delivers gritty, real lyrics with passion and focus. Their various spats over the years with different artists have been dramatic, but after 20 years Mobb Deep has consistently come out on top.


Previous Hits

The duo would have a hard time with their debut album, Juvenile Hell, which would be met with little enthusiasm from both critics and fans. It wasn't until their second album, The Infamous, that Mobb Deep would experience mainstream success. Havoc and Prodigy would spit insiders perspectives of street life in New York City, resonating with listeners and contrasting the style and content of West Coast rivals like Snoop Dogg and Tupac Shakur. The hard hitting single "Shook Ones Pt. II" would carry the album and possibly remains as their single best known and influential track.

Hell on Earth would see collaboration from legends such as Method Man and Raekwon of Wu-Tang Clan, propelling them to the forefront of East Coast rap with acts like Notorious B.I.G. and Jay-Z. Mobb Deep would follow up this success with the transformative album Infamy, containing the hit "Burn" which was known as a retort to a Jay-Z diss on the band. Infamous's success would eventually leading them to sign with rapper 50 Cent's G-Unit label. The duo are still putting out fresh tracks with upcoming album The Infamous Mobb Deep, due out this April.


Trivia

The band has had to deal with rivalry and confrontation throughout much of its career, including being a part of the East Coast West Coast feud of the 90s. After the release of song "L.A. L.A.", Mobb Deep and Tupac would exchange disses over a series of different tracks. Tupac would make fun of people with sickle-cell disease - something Prodigy suffers from.

The duo would split for a short time in 2012. The two were part of a twitter battle against

one another after their performance at Austin's South By SouthWest. After some words back and forth Havoc would eventually release "Separated (Real from the Fake)", taking shots at former collaborator Prodigy. The two would reconcile in time for their ongoing 20th anniversary tour.


The Mobb Deep Concert Experience

With over 20 years of writing, recording, and performing, Mobb Deep are not an act to miss. Their extensive catalog of songs spanning 8 albums are as hardcore, heavy hitting and meaningful as the day they were written. The duo have a strong stage presence for an energetic but laid back show that typifies the essential East Coast rap performance. Longtime fans, hardcore rap enthusiasts and the uninitiated alike can all appreciate the atmospheric beats from Havoc and the palpably real rhymes dropped by Prodigy that make a Mobb Deep performance not quite like anything else out there.
