Yesterday (6/20) marked one full year since the tragic passing of hip-hop legend, Prodigy of Mobb Deep. The rap community was understandably rocked by the death of the “HNIC,” but P’s partner, Havoc, did something to help fans cope with the sad day.
Hav released two previously unreleased freestyles to the masses as a tribute to his fallen comrade. “We lost my partner one year from today,” he tweeted. “It’s Mobb Deep for life. Enjoy these unreleased freestyles.”
According to The Source:
Both recorded in with DJ Absolut, the first track is called “Stay Chiseled Freestyle”, featuring P giving fans those unparalleled crime rhyme bars over Large Professor’s “Stay Chisel”–the original version of which featured Nas. “[We] Drink the most Henny and E&J,” P raps on the track. “We smoke the most weed and that’s mostly the haze / You get the most Timb boots kicked on a ni**a face / Gotta be the most idiot ni**a on the face of the earth to ever let the thought cross your head that we not the most likely to pop off, kid.”
The second unreleased freestyle is called “Thief’s Theme Freestyle,” which is over Nas’ “Thief’s Theme” (from Street’s Disciple). It features both Hav and P and also showcases that traditional P E-Double.
