Few deaths in, hell, all of hip hop history have stung like the untimely passing of Mobb Deep’s Prodigy. While most labels rush to put out posthumous material quickly following the loss of a popular artist, Prodigy’s estate has been careful in preparing his final statements.
Those are now on the way. Hegelian Dialectic: The Book of Heroine is set to arrive this year, with a third entry due for 2023 (the first installment, Hegelian Dialectic (The Book of Revelation) arrived just months before his death in 2017). There’s also hope of a final project alongside The Alchemist, as the legendary producer has stated he has more songs alongside his close collaborator, while Havoc is also said to be working on a final Mobb Deep album.
While it was originally reported that the album itself would arrive this Friday, a proper rollout has begun instead, led by lead single “You Will See”. The song features a surprisingly smooth hook for a Prodigy jam, but his raps remain as blunt and effortless as ever, his omnipresent voice looming over everything. He remains deeply missed.
Check out the song soon, and stay tuned to Beats Per Minute for more regarding his final albums soon.
