Eminem teams up with Mobb Deep on “Recovery”

Five years ago, Eminem was formally introduced to Mobb Deep when they signed with G-Unit Records. Eminem is an insider with the G-Unit label because 50 Cent is the CEO of that label, while the franchise player for Em’s Shady Records. Initially, Eminem had little to nothing to do with Havoc and Prodigy. They never had a chance to properly work together.

Last September, 50 Cent revealed that Mobb Deep was no longer on G-Unit Records. Because he was trying to leave Interscope Records, 50 Cent allowed them to leave. In the time since they have left G-Unit, there have been many rumors circulating. Among those rumors is that they have reunited with Nas. Dating back to 50 Cent’s 2002 album, he has had issues with Nas.

When Mobb Deep had signed with G-Unit, some hip hop heads were anticipating a collaboration between Eminem and Mobb Deep. Despite working right on top of each other, the duo never had a chance to work with Eminem. Seeing how 50 Cent is, it appeared that a chance of them uniting would never happen. But, with 50 Cent moving on with his career, a union has come.

Eminem has finally reached a place in his career where he does not take on the battles of his friends. All in the name of creativity, he aligned himself with Lil Wayne, a known foe of his protégé. Now, with his album set for release this year, Eminem has sought the production work of Havoc of Mobb Deep. Never before has he worked with Havoc and he thought it was time.

Recovery should see its release sometime this summer on Shady Records and Interscope Records.
