Queens duo dropping by U.S. cities from May to June
Mobb Deep went on an indefinite hiatus last year following a very public (and ugly) Twitter dispute between the Queens duo's two MCs, Havoc and Prodigy. Back in April 2012, Havoc directed several inflammatory remarks at his longtime partner, alleging that Prodigy engaged in a homosexual relationship while serving a three-year jail sentence. Prodigy responded, tweeting that he didn't want to take part in any beef.
Needless to say, the exchange looked like one of the uglier break-ups in recent memory until last month, when the East Coast all-stars announced they would reunite for a March 30 gig at California's Paid Dues Festival. AllHipHop also reported that Hav and Prod were planning to embark on an international tour to celebrate their 20th anniversary — Mobb Deep's 1993 debut, Juvenile Hell, hits the big 2-0 in April — and now the New York rap legends have unveiled a slew of upcoming dates.
Following that initial appearance at the Paid Dues Festival, the Black Cocaine slingers will play shows in Chicago, Seattle, Portland, Los Angeles, Boston, Philadelphia, and several other U.S. cities from May to June. No abroad performances have been confirmed yet, and, weirdly, neither have any shows in the pair's hometown, New York.
