Maybe Prodigy caught word that Wiz Khalifa‘s next album, O.N.I.F.C., was inspired by his initial H.N.I.C. release from 2000. Maybe he just digs Khalifa’s music. Whatever the case, P has enlisted Wiz, T.I., Willie (of Day 26) and Mobb Deep pal Havoc for guest spots on the forthcoming (July 3) H.N.I.C. 3.
Most of the new album was written while Prodigy was serving a three year prison term for gun possession in New York. He told MTV’s RapFix that Khalifa will be on the song “Co-Pilot,” and said of the features in general, “I wanted to use people that were kinda hard to get and also you wouldn’t think that I would collab with them.”
About writing the majority of 3‘s material in lock-up, Prodigy said, “I got to really take my time with the concepts, the lyrics…be really precise with it and really come up with something that can last a long time.” Let’s not get too hype, but who doesn’t want to see P make a solid comeback? [HHDX]
