Rate Hip-Hop’s Post-Prison Comeback Singles [Poll]

There’s no glorifying prison. A bid is a bid. But, as twisted as it may sound, lock up has had its share of benefits in hip-hop. In addition to boosting street credibility, jail sentences also create anticipation for comebacks. In the last decade, MCs like T.I., Gucci Mane and Lil Wayne have all come out of jail larger than life. Prodigy of Mobb Deep is looking to follow in their footsteps. After serving three years on gun possession, the Queens lyricist was released in early March. P’s already landed his talents to Jim Jones’ “Take a Bow” and Hot 97’s Funkmaster Flex leaked Mobb’s “Love Y’all More” two weeks ago. Earlier this week, P teamed up with partner-in-rhyme Havoc and longtime collaborator Nas to release “Dog Shit,” his first official single since being released from prison. Judging by the internets’ reaction, the track is poised to join the annals of impactful comeback songs that have come out in the last 10 years. XXL looks back at hip-hop’s post-prison releases over the last ten years. Who’s had the best comeback track? —Amber McKynzie
