H.N.I.C. 3 CDs (2012)
Infamous Records CDs One half of the legendary hip-hop crew Mobb Deep, Prodigy breaks out solo for the third time with the album H.N.I.C. 3. Being his first full-length released since completing his three-year sentence on gun charges, expect plenty of tracks that deal with Prodigy's experience in jail, along with lighter material, including his team-up with Wiz Khalifa, "Co-Pilot." T.I. and Mobb Deep partner Havoc are here, too, while production comes from longtime Mobb collaborator the Alchemist along with names like Beat Butcha and Sid Roams. Hardcore fans should check the f.y.e. chain of stores for their exclusive edition, which comes with a bonus DVD featuring the Mobb Deep documentary The Infamous.
