The rap duo, made up of the late Prodigy and Havoc, created Juvenile Hell in their late teens during the second half of 1992 and was released via 4th & B’way. The album didn’t achieve critical and commercial success like their The Infamous but did foreshadow the sound that the group became known for.

A few weeks ago, Havoc released two Mobb Deep freestyles. One track is titled “Stay Chiseled” while the other is named “Thief’s Theme.”

Havoc has previously said that a new Mobb Deep album is dropping sometime this year.

“The way I’m reflecting on it is I’m just trying to keep the legacy alive,” Havoc said about the forthcoming album. “We deserve that, and I’m actually currently working on the new album in conjunction with the family. It’ll be out there pretty soon. Before the end of the year it’ll be out.”

Near the time of his death, Prodigy was hospitalized for an episode triggered by his sickle-cell anemia. He passed away while in a Las Vegas hospital. The cause of death was accidental choking.
