Although the members of the rap duo Mobb Deep have been active in recent months independently (self-proclaimed H.N.I.C. Prodigy is prepping a new solo album, having been recently released from a three-year prison stint, and Havoc has been producing beats for Eminem and Raekwon), the group finally found time to put out its first release in five years, their Black Cocaine EP. If Queensbridge’s most infamous know anything, though, it’s self-preservation, and this is just the preamble to their self-titled album, due next year, which will feature guest spots by Odd Future, Nas, Wiz Khalifa and Rick Ross.
