Mobb Deep are reuniting for a new album and "The Infamous Mobb Deep" tour, as their second album "The Infamous" hits its 20-year anniversary.
Mobb Deep have been over more than a few rough patches in the span of their career, but they've always managed to come back after. The two members, Havoc and Prodigy, are reuniting in celebration of the 20-year anniversary of The Infamous, not only for a new album, but for a tour.
While talking to the HuffingtonPost, the group revealed their plans for the coming year: a double-disc album set to arrive in the spring of 2014. The first disc will be completely new jams, while the second disc will be a digitally-remastered version of The Infamous, plus ten more joints that have never been heard from the 1995 recording sessions for The Infamous. This new album will be released in conjunction with a North American tour from the duo, kicking off January 10th in San Diego. Tickets will go on sale December 20th.
P spoke on how the two managed to get over the publicity stunt that went down last year. Apparently it's all thanks to the studio."Once you hear the rhymes ... hear the first beat, all the beef is gone," Prodigy said.
Peep the interview below. Check out the full list of tour dates here.
[Update: Artwork Revealed]
Mobb Deep's upcoming album, which will be packaged alongside a remastered version of their seminal sophomore effort, The Infamous, now has some official cover art.
Much like their 1995 classic (and the majority of their press photos), the cover finds Prodigy and Havoc pulling their best mean mugs. The Infamous Mobb Deep is still without a release date, but it's expected to it stores this spring.
