In the months leading up to his incarceration, Prodigy of Mobb Deep, recorded a prolific body of work some which have made their way onto mixtapes and others that have been touted as the next official Prodigy release. Nearly 9 months into his 3½ year sentence, Voxonic in association with AAO Music, the exclusive recording home of Prodigy, has announced the next official Prodigy project; H.N.I.C. Pt.2: The Ultimate Collectors Edition, an elaborately designed 3-Disc Collectors Edition encased in an embossed collectors tin designed by Prodigy himself.
The three disc set features the complete H.N.I.C. Pt. 2 album and eight exclusive new tracks: "Dirty New Yorker," featuring Havoc, "It's Nothing" featuring Big Noyd, "When I See You Remix," featuring Cormega, "Get Trapped" featuring Nyce and Un Pacino, "The Dough," "Represent Me," and "When I See You." The second disc in the collectors' edition is a DVD collection of videos for every song from the album with a bonus video of "Sleep When I'm Dead;" the third disc features full commentary from Prodigy on the making of each song on H.N.I.C. Pt. 2 as told by Prodigy and the album's producers: Havoc, Sid Roams, Apex, Arie Deutsch, and Executive Producers The Alchemist and Steve Sola. Also included in each collectors' tin is a "Free P" Promotional Bandanna.
Peter Kuys, Chairman of AAO Music/Reality, said in a statement today, "Prodigy is committed to a long term H.N.I.C. Pt 2 plan to brand his H.N.I.C. series of albums. As a label, we're committed to maintaining his presence in the market and have embarked on several initiatives towards that purpose. To date we've released the H.N.I.C. Pt. 2 audio album, a DVD Collection, and created deals with Sansa Player, and opportunities with Grand Theft Auto IV. We're excited that Prodigy has chosen to release his next release with us and that he remains focused on H.N.I.C."
Arie Deutsch, President of Voxonic adds, "With the turn towards digital sales, innovative record labels are finding new ways to package music. Prodigy was one of the first to make use of voice transfer technology through his use of Voxonic, a voice transformation technology. Through his use of the software, H.N.I.C. Pt. 2 was translated and transformed in his voice from English into Spanish. Some tracks have been released via YouTube, and the full album in Spanish will be released first quarter 2009."
Prodigy remains active digitally through HNIC2.com a social community for Prodigy/Mobb Deep Fans and his bi-monthly blogs on the site and for Vibe.com. In fact, Prodigy was one of the first hip-hop artists to create an online community through his first site, infamousstores.com. As usual with H.N.I.C. Pt.2: The Ultimate Collectors Edition, Prodigy is the first artist in hip-hop to move into the collector's tin area. Voxonic and AAO Music are leading the way, creating new ways to give music lovers more for their money.
The Ultimate H.N.I.C. Collection Tin is the next official Prodigy album scheduled for street date of November 4, 2008.
