Watch: Mobb Deep’s Prodigy Freestyles Over Tyler the Creator Beat

They be the infamous, you heard of ’em? Legendary Queensbridge duo Mobb Deep is preparing to release a new album and hit the road in honor of the group’s 20th anniversary. During a recent visit to Funkmaster Flex’s radio show on Hot 97, Prodigy rocked a freestyle over Tyler the Creator’s “Yonkers.” The menacing, haunted-house vibe of the track was a perfect palette for the grimy hip-hop O.G.
