Prodigy of Mobb Deep let an exciting secret loose backstage at the Las Vegas leg of the Rock the Bells this week, revealing to Bootleg Kev that he and Havoc would be coming with a new album sometime before the end of the year. Not only that, but the duo are also eyeing a collaboration album with none other than Nas.

Details are understandable under tight wraps, but Prodigy suggested that the album will be ready for release before next year, with a lead single on the way shortly. He also added that Havoc and frequent collaborator the Alchemist will be two of the featured producers on the album.

"We'll be dropping the single for the [new] album soon," he said. "That's the only thing we're focusing on right now, the Mobb Deep album…it'll be [out] before the new year. We ain't letting nothing out the bag – just know, it's that hard shit… Al[chemist], Havoc, the home team, you know? Mobb Deep, you know how we always do it."
