Mobb Deep to Reunite Onstage for First Show in Three Years
Upon his release from prison, Mobb Deep rapper Prodigy jumped right back into the headlines with his controversial tell-all, ‘My Infamous Life: The Autobiography of Mobb Deep’s Prodigy.’ Now, the revered Queensbridge rap group will reunite on stage for the first time in over three years on Thursday, May 12, performing at New York City’s Best Buy Theater in Times Square.
Prodigy finished serving a three-year prison sentence for weapons possession on March 7, and will finally be taking the stage with partner Havoc to headline the impressive lineup, which also features Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, the Roots‘ offshoot The Money Making Jam Boys and DJ Stretch Armstrong, who is credited for having helped break Mobb Deep back in the early ’90s.
The group last performed at Prodigy’s farewell show in Times Square on February 6, 2008, before the MC began serving his sentence for illegal possession of a .22 caliber pistol.
The event will be hosted by Hot 97 radio personality Peter Rosenberg and ego trip founder Sacha Jenkins, who is also co-producing the event with promotions company LiveNDirect. Tickets are available here.
Mobb Deep will have also scheduled reunion shows on May 28 in Los Angeles, Calif., May 29 in San Francisco, and on June 7 in Foxborough, Mass.
