It has been said that real gangsters move in silence. In the case of Havoc (of Mobb Deep) and legendary producer The Alchemist, the duo chose to let their music speak for themselves. On the newly announced collaborative album, The Silent Partner, Havoc serves as the smooth-talking, gangster mouthpiece to the Alchemist's gritty, one-of-a-kind instrumental backdrops.
One of the most decorated producers in hip-hop today, The Alchemist’s relationship with Mobb Deep dates back to 1999 when Cypress Hill’s DJ Muggs introduced the then-upcoming producer to the revered New York duo. The Alchemist would go onto forge a strong bond with the group, resulting in a myriad of classic tracks throughout the years.
Today, the duo has let loose the second single from The Silent Partner featuring Wu-Tang brethren, Method Man. On "Buck 50's & Bullet Wounds," Havoc and Method Man display razor sharp bars over The Alchemist's bulletproof production. The song premiered via RapRadar.
The Silent Partner is a magnificently organic album that brings together one-half of the Mobb with their favorite producer for a modern day hip-hop classic. The Silent Partner features guest appearances by Method Man, Prodigy (of Mobb Deep) and Cormega and will be released on May 20th via Babygrande Records.
Tonight we welcomed Tariq Trotter, lead MC for the Roots to the Harvard i-lab as part of our Other Side Speaker series. Although most of his time is spent on tour or leading The Roots as Jimmy Fallon’s house band on The Tonight Show, Trotter is also a fashion entrepreneur, a supporter of various charitable organizations, and much more.
In this clip, we were treated to a freestyle from Trotter that blew the doors off the place.
