On Wednesday, “RapFix Live” will be welcoming Prodigy.It was 2000 when the Mobb Deep rapper released his critically acclaimed solo debut, H.N.I.C., and now, 12 years later, he has completed the trilogy with his recently released H.N.I.C. 3. The album, which was released on Mobb Deep’s own Infamous Records, features Wiz Khalifa and Prodigy’s M-O-B-B partner Havoc as well as production from the Alchemist.
During his May “RapFix” appearance, Prodigy said most of the material for H.N.I.C. 3 was written during his three-year incarceration stemming from a 2006 gun arrest. “The third one, I spent a lot of time working on it. I did my little bid, three years or whatever, and that’s basically when I was writing most of this album,” Prodigy explained. “So, I got to really take my time with the concepts, the lyrics, how I want it to be, be really precise with it and really come up with something that can last a long time.”
Catch Slaughterhouse and Prodigy on “RapFix Live,” Wednesday at 4 p.m. ET on MTV.com, and be sure to join the Twitter conversation using the hashtag #RapFixLive. Send your questions for the artists @MTVRapFix!
