Prodigy Explains "Illuminati Is Us" Line, Shares Story Of Tupac's Notebook
Exclusive: Alex Jones' favorite rapper illuminates about the original illuminated ones and reveals the revolutionary plans included in the Tupac notebook he was given.Can gangstas grow up?
It’s a question Hip Hop has to ask itself in the era of 30-something-year-old rappers clinging to their “2nd Childhood” like a life preserver. In a culture consumed with youth can rugged rhymers, even ones who once championed their “criminal minds thirsty for recognition” mentality as young-and-dumb teenagers, actually push past their “infamous” pasts and present themselves like the grown men they are without surrendering their fan bases to contemporaries who refuse to relinquish their reckless immaturity?
That question is sure to be asked by many a Mobb Deep fan upon listen to the latest release from Prodigy, H.N.I.C 3. Without question the most mature offering from the former gun-toting menace to society who 17 years ago proudly proclaimed he was “goin’ out blastin’, takin’ my enemies with me,” the fourth solo effort from one-half of the M-O-B-B will test the limits of murda muzik devotees and all fans who stubbornly stunt their favorite rappers growth by demanding they stay, as Nas would say, “trapped in the ‘90s.”
