Mobb Deep Announce 20th Anniversary Tour Dates
The Wu-Tang Clan aren’t the only legendary hip hop clique getting ready to celebrate an anniversary this year. Prodigy and Havoc have had a back and forth relationship but they seem to have made amends. Mobb Deep are getting ready to hit the road for a 20th anniversary tour.
The tour marks the anniversary of their debut album, Juvenile Hell. The project dropped in April of 1993. Now do you feel old?
The group hasn’t been getting along lately. Havoc tweeted some heat aimed at Prodigy last April. The comments were quickly deleted and he denied they ever existed. Some recorded comments about his mate were released shortly after and seemed to confirm the bad blood, though.
What I find most confusing about the tour is how “left-coast” heavy the locations are. There are very few dates on the east coast. I don’t understand why the Queens, NY natives would focus their performances so much on the west coast. Not ONE performance in NY? For their 20th anniversary? I don’t get it.
