Mobb Deep might have been on hiatus for a minute but they are definitely keen to keep things relevant on their upcoming reunion album, The Infamous Mobb Deep, assigning some of the production tasks to OVO rep Boi-1nda. The Toronto producer, who hit us with ‘The Language’ and ‘Pound Cake’ on Drake’s smash Nothing Was The Same, says he is committed to bringing real hip hop back.
Speaking with Vibe on his latest employ, 1nda says working with Havoc on tracks for the record has been a life-long dream.
“I’m not with that jiggy stuff. I want people to hear my music and be like, ‘Wow that’s hip hop, but that’s not like fucking backpack.’ Not crazy down-south trendy music – I’m not about trendy. I’m about making legendary and timeless music.”
