This past Sunday, right before Mobb Deep tore down Webster Hall, Prodigy and Havoc joined Egotrip co-founder Sacha Jenkins in a Q & A session about their classic LP, The Infamous. It was really a Mobb Deep stan’s wet dream. The fellas talked about every single little detail from recording the LP. In this clip, they recall recording “Eye for An Eye” with Wu-Tang. Let’s just say it was a dusty adventure in Staten Island.
Special thanks to Red Bull Academy for putting on these dope events.

Out on bail fresh out of jail, X joined 106 & Park yesterday via sallelite in honor of Aaliyah’s 10 year anniversary. X also brought along his daughter who also is named after the songstress. After the jump, footage courtesy of FreezeTV of X at a recent shoot for an unknown video.
Today is the 10 year anniversary of Aaliyah’s passing and I’m sitting here reminiscing and playing music, thinking of the times we spent together, working, laughing, singing, dancing, cutting up. But really, it’s not all that different from any other day because I do think about her every day.
Not on purpose, but she is my friend and that’s just how I do. I’ve told the same stories for 9 years – how we met, how me and Tim were scared but Aaliyah was so welcoming and had this smile and way about her that put us at ease, that she liked to take chances and we were able to just be who we were and make good records together.
She loved playing jokes and that’s another part of her personality that made it fun to be around her. As a talent, I think she’s missed because she was unique and a true triple threat. She could sing, dance, and her acting was starting to take off.
I’m glad for the memories I have and the time we got to spend together, but I miss my friend.
Rest In Peace and Power Baby Girl.

Moments ago, Eminem sent us his statement:
“Nate’s voice in music will never be replaced.

My condolences and prayers go out to his family and loved ones.”
