Prodigy Preps H.N.I.C. Pt. 2 for March Release

Prodigy of Mobb Deep is preparing for the release his third solo LP, H.N.I.C. Pt. 2, on Voxonic Music in March of 2008. The QB native, who will begin serving a 3 ½ year sentence on weapons charges on January 9, recently launched the hnic2.com website in support of the project and has reportedly shot videos for each of the tracks in anticipation of his absence. “Throughout my life, I have always lived through adversity,” Prodigy said in a statement. “I’m a survivor. You don’t understand the mental power that I have. While I’m locked up, I’m going to be writing lyrics, working on the script for my second feature film, Dope, and finish writing an autobiography of my life which will be finished by the time I’m released. My mind is going to be focused and I’ll have time to think and map out my entire plan.” P’s partner Havoc and longtime Mobb collaborator The Alchemist are handling the bulk of the production on the project, which will also feature tracks from a number of up and coming producers. Additionally, Voxonic will be using their proprietary technology to translate the album into 1,400 different languages, enabling fans across the world to hear the entire LP in their own native dialects. “I’ll be the first hip hop artist to release a record that’s converted into foreign languages using the Voxonic voice conversion technology,” P said of the venture. “The technology they use is a great opportunity for me to keep supplying my fans around the world with music to hold them down while I’m away.”

    I’m waiting on that album!!!!! Ain’t too much quality shit out there so this should be a breath of fresh air. The only thing that’s really fucked up is that we won’t have a Mobb album for a while. Damn =o(

      If anybody is pus*y, it’s Mobb Deep’s crew who was there at the moment. First of all, the boss should not even get touched with the crew there. Second, after Saigon hit Prodigy, Saigon stood on the stage for a good minute behind the big dude (which was homie’s job anyway, he’s paid to do that). So he didn’t just run like a b*tch. If Mobb deep was so tough, they would have stomped out Saigon and the dude in front of him. There’s no way one person going stop a whole crew from getting to Sai.

      As far as Sai getting low. Who the hell sticks around to get stomped out, or better yet killed? That’s like me sticking around to get shot, after I let off some shots to the homie I was suppose to tap on. I’m not going to wait around, for some mofos to retaliate. You’re an idiot if you do that. Anybody with common sense knows that.

      Besides, Sai says this was not the first time he dealt with them. With that being said, I’m thinking he and his Lo Life/Abandon Nation crew whooped Prodigy up before. So, they tried to do this little situation to get him back. Plus, Sai use to do dirt with Havoc’s cousin Prince. So I’m pretty sure, they were familiar some kind of way. Prior to this whole Shibang. Do your research, before y’all just go jumping off at the mouth.

      Either way, y’all need to stop being fans of the rappers themselves, and just be fans of their music. Their beefs don’t effect you, and it ain’t your problem one way or the other. No need to hate Sai because he got into it with Prodigy and Visa Versa.

      Moving on. I’m not Anti-Prodigy or anything. But come on homie. You’re prime has passed, and I don’t feel you’re sincere about your “positive” direction. We all get rightious and religious, when we got to go to the box. I’m sure he’ll be wildn out and talking wreckless again, once he gets out.

      • King B

        You must be one of the many dumbasses who would’ve gotten their shit beat in if they would’ve stayed dumb fuck

        • http://xXLMAG jb-da b.stuy reppa

          Look here pussy. All i’m saying is he can’t talk tough if he went off running. How you gone talk hard when you almost got killed that night!!!! He a bitch!!!!!! Now he talking all this hard shit about if Prodigy goes to jail? Please!!!!! You think P don’t got his own goons in jail. Let me tell you something faggot. Anybody that runs like that was a bitch in jail because in their it’s always altercations and you can’t run in jail. All u got is P.C. for the niggaz that can’t handle it. He duffed prodigy right? Finish what you start. Not to mention he ran with his bodyguard lol. I guess his bodyguard made him feel tough that night. You obviously a Saigon fan. Be one of the ten people who cop his album and shut the fuck up.

          Come on scrap….Are u missing my point tough guy…READ what i’m saying. DON’T TALK TOUGH WHEN U WAS RUNNING…THAT’S ALL I’M SAYING!!!! And I happen to know plenty homeboy…I’m not gonna put it all out there and mention names though!!!!!! (Like u just did yourself) I’m just giving my point of view. Your not anti Prodigy then why are you mentioning his prime!!! Hell at least he had a prime!!!!! He’s a legend in the game if you wanna admit it or not. 10 years from now were still gonna talk about “The Infamous”. I pretty sure you own a few Mobb albums… but don’t get it twist….I’m not rooting for one against the other but when I see someone fronting I gotta let it be known!!!! No e thugging over here baby. Just stating it as I see it. And I ask this question again….If ran like he did what do you think he was doing in jail. What was he doing with a bodyguard? He’s tough right!!!!!!! Just saying it as I see it……Don’t mention names though homie…… that shit could get people in trouble u know….

        • http://www.myspace.com/chynashouse Rocka

          I mentioned Prodigy’s prime, because it’s about his music. Not about this petty ass bullshit beef, that means absolutely nothing. I’m not anti-Prodigy. I didn’t try to asassinate the man’s character, or discredit him. I didn’t say nothing about the man personally. So no, I’m not anti-anything. On the other hand, you’re jumping at every chance to call Sai a bitch, and arguing it up, and name calling with the folks on this site. That’s not a good look.

          Anyway, it’s not about being tough. It’s about using common sense. I don’t care about how G you are. You’re still human. Gangstas get caught slippin too. They aren’t exempt from anything. I don’t know why y’all think that. WTF does his prison term got to do with this? That nigga been out since 99/2000. It’s called being in the frre world again, and free will and all. He ain’t locked up anymore, he ain’t got to act like a savage.

          That would be ass backwards. He worked his ass off to get his life back on track. Too much to lose now. He ain’t going to be stupid and mess that up. So it ain’t about being tough. It’s about using common sense and making the smart choices. Ain’t nobody trying to go back to prison over BS like this, that ain’t even worth it. Mofos want to be hot heads, but don’t want to think about the consequences.

          And if anybody is frontin, it’s Prodigy. Trying to make this situation look like something it’s not. Bottom line, Prodigy still got tapped in the dome twice by Sai and clotheslined to ground by Sai’s man, and then Prodigy got up all dazed and confused and walked off like WTF happened? It dont matter what happened after that. Besides, it’s old news anyway.

          And it ain’t like Sai never admitted that he got low. He did admit that. Like he said, why the hell would I stay and let them retaliate? SOB’s was full of Queens Bridge that night. And their boss still got tapped. And you worried about how Sai got out the building (even though he wasn’t suppose to). Who cares how he got low. He still did exactly what he said he was going to do.

          Bottom line, I could really care less. Like I said before, this shit is petty anyway. I just don’t like when folks try to asassinate somebody’s character. But that’s just me being me. Bottom line, let it go. These beefs ain’t y’all’s. And there ain’t shit else to say. Y’all mofos are becoming too much of the Hip Hop tabloid. Hey, I’m done with it. Y’all are too concerned about what goes on off the mic. If you’re a real Hip hop head, none of this should matter to you. You shouldn’t tear one down to build the other one up.

  • King B

    ^^^Agree, how can ya’ll even support this dude he isn’t shit now he’s goin to be locked up for 3 and 1/2 years so he’ll be forgotten even if his album drops he doesn’t have positive music like he claims ya’ll need to smarten up and listen to something better than him

  • ill G

    what gets me is why does he have to wait to get hemmed up to get “focused and have time to think and map out my entire plan.”???? fuckin moron do that shit ANYWAY, dont just wait to get locked up to do it!! and that translater shit is gonna be stupid as hell… phrases in english do not translate, and therefore wont make any sense, in some other languages

  • latino heat

    whoever says prodigy fell off must have not heard return of the mac. he really got his swag back on that shit. with that said no this will not sell, but come on this is a true independant album, no koch or nothing. so obviously he aint expecting big numbers, especially arter havoc sold less than 4000 copies his 1st week. hes just trying to give that true m.o.b.b. heat to the die hard fans. in this day and age of ring tone rap and quick buck artist how can you not respect that. hold your head p.

    • Lotto

      I don’t liked that they signed to G-unit but Prodigy has not fallen off at all, I agree witchu that RETURN OF THE MAC is straight ass fire. His first album was too.

  • fireforreal

    Prodigy hasn’t been hot since the murda muzik album.His skills continue to decline and so will his fame.He’s going to jail for being stupid and it has nothing to do with keepin it real or any other excuse all these rappers who make dumb mistakes always have.Mna up nigga and set a better example for your kids

  • rosecity

    haters… how can ya’ll not be anticipating his new joint after Return of the Mac–a near classic. Alchemist has been on fire lately and Prodigy still got it. I mean, shit, their G-Unit release (Blood Money) was very average and I know ya’ll hate on 50, but this new one will be worth a cop. He’s gonna need that $ in jail too, damn, that’s too bad, hopefully he’ll be out early and rich. Don’t sleep on Havoc either, I know his solo joint was a disappointment but he’s still a great Producer.

  • KID PANAMA

    HOPEFULLY IT WILL BE BETTER THAN THE FRIST H.N.I.C. CUZ THAT JOINT WAS A CLASSIC!

  • http://www.myspace.com/mc585 M.C

    KID PANAMA

    I’ll co-sign that…I still ride listen to that old HNIC in the summer that’s a classic album 4real 4real…but P haven’t been the same in a minute…If i was getting all that money nigga best believe i’d be hating models left and right and staying out of trouble with the feds…no dought about that–but hey–4 some catz it’s diff

    http://www.myspace.com/mc585 i need that love

  • http://asianmanflavor26@Yahoo.com CA IS ACTIVE

    HNIC #1 GO… but P fell off. Saigon got juice in the system, P better join an act and get under that for like 22 months he isn’t going to do the full 3 1/2 you lames .Boo hoo. Going to the Saigon Show in frisco to rep..

    Oh yeah half of you would run too if it was like 20 bumbs trying to rack pack you. I don’t want to hear otherwise. I lost respect for P when he tried to do that shiite to Mega.

    50 da hnic sit ya yung ass down somwhere

  • niggafrommemphis

    I don’t give a fuck if its 14 million languages,I know alot of niggas that speak english and wouldn’t listen to his shit unless they were paid to.If he makes history with this shit,that’s good cuz I ain’t no hater,but if you niggas really think he bout to make some noise…. quit listening to rap.

  • Vicious Seiger

    Translate your album? Sounds like a very bad idea. Hopefully HNIC2 will be better than his recent project I just wasn’t feeling it. I thought him and AL would make a classic but I was left wondering did they take their time or were they under the gun to complete it. Either way, P Keep It Thoro!

    I doubt it will all rhyme and flow properly.
