DJ Premier Unearths a Rare Mobb Deep Collaboration Called "Cop Hell"

A post shared by @djpremier on

If you are a real Mobb Deep fan, you know that DJ Premier produced on their debut album, Juvenile Hell.

That song was “Peer Pressure,” and it was one of the album’s singles.

Now, just a couple of days after Prodigy’s untimely passing, Premier has released another old collaboration. This one is called “Cop Hell.” It was recorded in 1992 and originally released as a B-side to Gang Starr’s “Doe In Advance” single.

The song was supposed to be on the group’s debut, but it got scratched due to the controversy surrounding Ice-T’s infamous “Cop Killer” record at the time.

Primo dropped the song on his SoundCloud. With it, he released a statement about how the song came about:

THIS SONG WAS PULLED FROM THE “JUVENILE HELL” LP AFTER THE WHOLE ICE-T “COP KILLER” SONG WAS SHOCKING THE WORLD; SO MOBB DEEP’s LABEL 4TH & B’WAY REMOVED IT AS WELL…

SOME COPIES LEAKED, BUT MOST DJ’s DON’T HAVE IT.

ME, PRODIGY AND HAVOC GOT PULLED OVER BY THE COPS IN 1993 AND THEY WERE ON SOME FOUL SHIT, BUT WE WERE ABLE TO GET AWAY WITHOUT THEM FINDING OUT HOW DIRTY THE CAR WAS BACK THEN…

SO WE WROTE THIS SONG ABOUT IT…

HERE IT IS UNCUT…

WE ARE GONNA MISS YOU PRODIGY…(R.I.P.)

CONDOLENCES TO HIS FAMILY…

Listen to “Cop Hell” below. And don’t forget to pour one out for P.
