"Mobb Deep confirmed for Book 2"
Mobb Deep is an American hip hop duo from Queensbridge, Queens, New York, that consist of Havoc and Prodigy. Havoc is the lead producer of Mobb Deep and has produced songs for MCs such as Eminem, Nas, Foxy Brown, Onyx, The Notorious B.I.G., Jadakiss, Styles P, Method Man, The Game, Diddy, LL Cool J, La The Darkman, Big Noyd, Termanology, O.G.C, Tragedy Khadafi, Capone-N-Noreaga, and also on his partner Prodigy's solo work.
After the first 4 Mobb albums (Juvenile Hell, The Infamous, Hell on Earth and Murda Muzik) Prodigy finally debuted as a solo artist with a total of about 7 albums (H.N.I.C, Return of the Mac, H.N.I.C Pt.2, H.N.I.C Pt.3, The Bumpy Johnson Album, Albert Einstein, Young Rollin Stonerz and The Hegelian Dialectic).
Mobb Deep are one of the most critically acclaimed hardcore East Coast Hip-Hop groups of all time and this is one of the main (but not only) reasons they have been featured in the second book in the 9th illy series.
In book 2 we get a more detailed account of what was going on in the $inCity artist's lives before the money and fame. This is successfully done through series of flashbacks which also introduce the readers to new characters.
"What part Mobb Deep will play in the second book will be revealed closer to the official release date, but for now I can say that they do inspire one of the main characters in the story".
