Mobb Deep – “Try My Hand”

Last month, the Queens rap great Prodigy, one half of the Infamous Mobb Deep, died suddenly and shockingly, a victim of the sickle cell anemia that had been tormenting him for his entire life. But P was still doing great work in his final days, and the Alchemist, the producer who had been working with the duo since the late ’90s, has now shared a posthumous track from the pair. Alchemist’s new album The Good Book, Vol.
is on the way, and it’s already yielded “Brother Jedidiah,” with Action Bronson, and “A Thousand Birds,” with Westside Gunn and Conway. And now he’s also shared a gorgeous, mournful, possibly-final Mobb Deep collab called “Try My Hand.” It’s a stark reminder that these two were still capable of doing great work, that Prodigy’s loss is a great one. Listen to it below.

The self-released The Good Book, Vol. 2 is out now.
