As a product of the 90’s myself I have always been a big Prodigy fan. You couldn’t help it when you grew up on The Infamous & Hell On Earth. Now opinions of Prodigy vary widely, but I’m a Mobb Deep fiend so any joint he drops I give a listen. He’s got this new album dropping “Product Of The 80’s”. Couple things about this album. 1. It features a production lineup of Sid Roams, Sebb, & Jake One. That is pretty much my favorite current producer lineup right there. Sid Roams executive produced the album. 2. My dude Al Khaaliq is connected with it as he worked with Sid Roams on producing one of the joints (“Test Tube Babies”). 3. The production lineup. 4. I’m a big Un Pacino fan (who is featured on the album with Big Twinz) and 5. The Producer lineup. The album drops on October 21st, and if you are an underground street hop fan like me then copp it. Here is a new joint just dropped called “Wuddup Gz”. Enjoy.
“Wuddup Gz” – Prodigy (Produced By Sid Roams)

Gotta shout out my man Buck for this piece of info. Looks like while sitting in a jail cell one half of Mobb Deep, namely Prodigy has time to deal with the stuff that he might normally have just turned a blind eye too. Anyhow here is his response to a recent piece on SOHH. Prodigy is obviously not impressed in what the ‘writer’ had to say. To read the original story which Prodigy posted and the analysis by SOHH check here
SOHH IS TALKIN’ RECKLESS
YEP, YEP…… WHAT’S GOING ON OUT THERE IN FREEDOM TOWN? I HOPE
EVERYBODY IS DOING WELL. THIS BLOG RIGHT HERE IS WRITTEN FOR SOMEBODY
NAMED “RECKLESS” ON SOHH.COM.
BUT, SINCE THE ENTIRE PLANET EARTH CAN READ THIS, I FIGURE I’D GREET
YOU ALL WITH WELL WISHES.
O.K., THIS PERSON “RECKLESS” CLAIMS THAT I’M TRYING TO “JUSTIFY POOR
SALES OF HNIC PT.2″ BY WRITING MY BLOG ENTITLED “SALES ARE DOWN? NO..
FAN’S ARE CLOWNS.”
ANYBODY WITH A DROP OF COMMON SENSE CAN READ MY BLOG AND SEE THAT I’M
EXPLAINING HOW I’M CONTENT WITH MY POSITION IN LIFE AND I’M NOT
CHASING SALES. I CLEARLY STATED THAT–LESS IS MORE AND THAT MOBB
DEEP/PRODIGY SUPPORTERS ARE NOT FANATICS OR LUNATICS. THE PEOPLE WHO
PURCHASE OUR PRODUCT(S) FROM DAY ONE ARE OUR SUPPORTERS. THE PEOPLE
WHO CHOOSE TO RIDE WITH US ARE A SPECIAL BREED OF PEOPLE THEY ARE VERY
AWARE OF BULLSHIT CLOWNS LIKE “RECKLESS.” YOU DAMN RIGHT, I DON’T WANT
FANS. FROM DAY ONE, MY MUSIC HAS BEEN AND IS FOR CONSCIOUS PEOPLE WITH
INTELLIGENCE WHO ARE AHEAD OF THEIR TIME. YES, LOTS OF TIME HAS GONE
BY SINCE OUR SONG ‘EYE 4 AN EYE.” THAT’S PRECISELY THE REASON WHY WE
ARE TO BE HIGHLY RESPECTED. LOOK HOW LONG WE LAST. WE RUN LAPS
AROUND RAPPERS CAREERS.
SOHH RECKLESS IS OBVIOUSLY NOT THE BRIGHTEST STAR IN THE SKY.
RECKLESS SEEMS TO THINK THAT I SHOULD BE EMBARRASSED ABOUT A PICTURE OF
ME AT 8 YEARS OLD WITH A MIKE JACKSON JACKET ON. TO QUOTE RECKLESS I
“SUFFERED AN IMMEASURABLE AMOUNT OF EMBARRASSMENT.” RECKLESS, YOU
SEE. YOU AND MANY OTHERS HAVE BEEN LIED TO BY J.Z…. BALLERINA? WHERE?
WHEN? HOW? PLEASE, SHOW ME THIS MAGICAL MYSTERY PICTURE!!! SCRATCH
THAT, WE WANNA SEE YOU RECKLESS??? OR ARE YOU A KEYBOARD THUG??? SHOW
YA FACE, SO PEOPLE CAN IDENTIFY YOU. THAT IS, WHEN AND IF YOU’RE EVER
OUT AND ABOUT. THE ENTIRE PLANET KNOWS WHAT I LOOK LIKE. I CAN’T
HIDE BEHIND A COMPUTER SCREEN. I GOTTA TOUCH EVERY HOOD ON THE FACE
OF THE EARTH TO PERFORM AND SPREAD MY MESSAGE. ANYBODY CAN TOUCH ME,
SNUFF ME, STAB ME, CLAP ME, OR REACH OUT AND GIVE ME LOVE.
PRODIGY MOVES AMONGST THE SHADOWS OF THE VALLEY OF DEATH AND FEARS NO
EVIL. WHAT ABOUT RECKLESS? FROM WHAT I CAN SEE, RECKLESS IS COMPUTER
SOLD OUT TO G-UNIT??? WRONG, WE MADE A VERY LUCRATIVE DEAL WITH
G-UNIT JUST LIKE WE MADE DEALS WITH ISLAND, LOUD, BMG, SONY, COLUMBIA,
JIVE AND SO ON.. LOST HALF OF OUR LUNATIC FANS? I SHOULD HOPE SO.
WHO WANTS THOSE? OUR LAST ALBUM “BLOOD MONEY” IS GOLD, WHICH MEANS
OUR SUPPORTERS THAT HAVE BEEN DOWN WITH US FROM DAY ONE ARE STILL DOWN
WITH US NOW.
I’LL BE HOME TO GET WITH YOU IN A HEARTBEAT, SO HOW BOUT YOU GROW A
BACKBONE AND REVEAL YOURSELF TO THE WORLD, ESPECIALLY NOW THAT YOU
CALL YOURSELF CHALLENGING MY INTELLIGENCE. WE ALL WANNA SEE IF YOU
GOT THE HEART TO SHOW YA FACE OR STAY A COWARD.
I GUESS WE’RE ALL ABOUT TO FIND OUT.
TO ALL MY SUPPORTERS, KEEP UP THE GOOD LOOK AND I PROMISE TO DO THE SAME.
TO ALL YALL FANATICS, IN THE IMMORTAL WORDS OF BIG PUN “I DON’T KNOW
YOU MAAAAANN.. GO THAT WAY.”
WAKE UP, CLEAN UP AND STAND UP!!!!
