The Alchemist, Mobb Deep’s Prodigy Announce Solo Albums

    It appears that 2012 will be another banner year for gritty hip-hop, because Prodigy, of Mobb Deep, and the Alchemist will both release solo albums next year. The records will be released through Mobb Deep’s own imprint, Infamous Records, which signed a deal with Sony RED Distribution this past September. The Queensbridge duo recently dropped their first project through the label in late November’s Black Cocaine EP. We don’t have any more details surrounding the Alchemist and Prodigy’s new projects. Well, no, all we know is that Al will produce his entire project and it’s set to feature a few guest rappers. We can dig it. [HHDX]
