Mobb Deep probably has a mountain of unreleased content floating around in the musical abyss. One of the most legendary hip-hop groups of all time lost Prodigy last year. The passing of the talented lyricist was mourned throughout hip-hop culture, but his spirit will live forever through his music.
If listening to old Mobb Deep cuts and reminiscing about the heyday of hip-hop is something you do often, then you are in luck. An unreleased Mobb Deep track hit the internet this weekend, and it finds the Infamous Ones rapping about what they want from a relationship. According to Hardtimes Records, who debuted the track on Soundcloud, "That's The Thing" was recorded after Prodigy got out of jail. It features Melissa J, who serenades the chorus in between Prodigy and Havoc's lust-filled lyrics.
And if the shoe was on the other foot, I'd hit the ceiling
Like the audacity of me playing with your feelings
I had you going crazy, friends telling you to leave me
Held me down and put them in they place when they was talking greasy
