It’s been a little over a week since Mobb Deep’s Prodigy has been free, after serving over three years in prison. However, he’s hit the ground running, and already released a new song.
Shortly after making his way back to New York City, the rapper reunited with Mobb Deep partner, Havoc, and released the duo’s first new recording in years, titled “Love Y’all More,” and produced by The Alchemist.
The track premiered on Funkmaster Flex’s Hot 97 show Wednesday night (March 16), in which P thanks fans for keeping their legacy alive while he was away.
“Well, well, damn it to hell, f*** is Mobb Deep? / Where y’all been at scraps? Recharging the batteries / Had to regroup, reboot the system, press reset / Fresh start right from where we started at,” Prodigy spits on the brand new verse, over ALC’s strings and subtle horns.
The Queens rapper continues by bigging up the fans and returning the love. “See the audience is my love and I won’t be a liar / If I ain’t say I love, lost a little bit of fire / But here, take my hand, and we gon’ keep it blazin’ hot / They hatin’ our relationship, it never stops,” he continues, as the track leads into the chorus. “Through the thick and the thin, strong and the long / We love y’all, ’cause y’all love us / We love ya’ll more.”
Prodigy was released from prison last week after completing a three-year sentence, stemming from a 2006 arrest where he was caught with a pistol.
Welcome home P!
