Back in August, Prodigy of Mobb Deep announced The Hegelian Dialectic, a new album "based on some true shit." We've been twiddling our thumbs ever since waiting for Prodigy to commence the album rollout. At last, he delivers The Hegelian Dialectic's first single, "Tyranny."
One half of legendary rap duo Mobb Deep, Prodigy has supposedly been working on a new record since summer of 2015. Titled The Hegelian Dialectic, we haven’t heard a peep from the Queensbridge rapper since rumors circulated the album would be dropping in early 2016.
DJ Kay Slay Feat. Prodigy, Raekwon & Papoose
DJ Kay Slay recently unveiled an all-Brooklyn collab with Fame, Maino, Troy Ave, Papoose, and Uncle Murda, and now he's back with some even bigger NYC stars, from Queens and Staten Island, Raekwon and Prodigy. BK's Papoose, always held down by NYC DJs, is also back, joining Chef and Prodigy on "Respect," off Slay's upcoming mixtape, Shadow of the Sun.
It's Mobb Deep
DJ Absolut's #MixtapeMondays series has been a reliable source of new material from wily veterans of the rap game, and the newest installment is maybe the best #MixtapeMonday ever. Absolut delivers a brand new Mobb Deep song entitled "It's Mobb Deep," in which Prodigy and Havoc let the listener know they're still going hard 20 years after The Infamous. The boom bap-style drums are so in the pocket that even the childish xylophone vamp adornment can't stop Prodigy and Havoc from doing their thing.
Quick To Flip (Freestyle)
DJ Absolut is kicking off this Monday morning by giving fans a little exclusive from 1/2 of Mobb Deep, Pordigy. The NYC-based DJ encourages the hashtag #DJAbsolutMixtapeMondays with this record, "Quick to Flip."\ "Quick to Flip" is a fiery freestyle clocking in at just 2 minutes, where Prodigy details the requirements for him to down on a lady-- "I'm just real cautious when it come to that hot box."
Survival Of The Fittest (ESPN Remix)
A few days back, we reported that Mobb Deep would be remixing their 1995 cut "Survival Of The Fittest" to serve as the intro to ESPN's "NBA Countdown" during the Western Conference Playoffs. Today, it's arrived.
Rock The Boat
Boogz Boogetz Feat. Prodigy
The other day New York native on the come up Boogz Boogetz dropped his new mixtape C.O.O.L. 2. The project seems well-received thus far, and features Fat Trel, Father, Vado, Smoke DZA, Black Cobain and more. One rapper whom Boogz works closely with was noticeably absent: Prodigy. Not to worry, we got you covered, as Boogz sent over this bonus track which, not only features P, it features a "Rock The Boat" Aaliyah sample. Fitting, given the fact that today would have been Aaliyah's birthday.
Prodigy Feat. Boogz Boogetz
The cross-generational New York team of Boogz Boogetz and Prodigy already gave us one Drew Skillz-produced track from their forthcoming Young Rollin Stoners project today, "Next Level," and now they're back with another. "40 Oz" is more relaxed than its predecessor, but no less dope.
Prodigy Feat. Boogz Boogetz
If you're a young rapper on the come-up in NYC, an assist from one of the city's many hip-hop legends is the stuff you dream about. In Boogz Boogetz's case, he's about to chock up an entire project with none other than Prodigy, one-half of the legendary Queensbridge duo Mobb Deep. Here's "Next Level," one of two tracks from their upcoming Young Rollin Stonerz project that they've shared today.
Your Old Droog Feat. Prodigy
Your Old Droog has finally emerged from the shadow of being "that guy we thought was Nas once" and stepped into the limelight of being a strong solo act. Just a week after making his first on-camera appearance, the emcee has linked up with the always-reliable Marco Polo and Mobb Deep's Prodigy for a brand new track that's sure to get fans ready for the approaching winter. Not to be confused for The Neighborhood's recent hit "Sweater Weather," "Hoodie Weather" finds our two emcees flexing their riches after holding the summer down.

Vado Feat. Chinx & Prodigy
If Vado's last track, "My Bae," was a song for the ladies, this one's for his homies. "Zoo Muzik" features Chinx and Prodigy, and was produced by Dolla Bill Kidz. Flipping a sample of The Eagles' "I Can't Tell You Why," the production team supplies the three MCs with a spacey beat to flow over. Vado, Chinx and Prodigy, all NYC natives, vibe off one another and all give us great verses. Vado even begins his with a "Shook Ones Pt. 2" reference.
