Editorial Reviews

2012 release from one half of the infamous Mobb Deep, the third installment of his H.N.I.C. series. H.N.I.C. 3 features a rejuvenated, but still strange and magnetic Prodigy aggressively debating about life, prison, religion, and conspiracy theories. Prodigy's gritty and poignant story telling is laid on a bed of captivating beats provided by familiar collaborators like Alchemist, as well as Ty Fyffe. Regarded by critics as a true poet, Prodigy's album is exactly what hip hop fans have been missing and waiting for.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very depressing! July 3, 2012
Format:Audio CD
From going to creating one of the greatest hip-hop albums of all time (The Infamous) to making this album is quite extradionary! Its not that Prodigy has lost his talents at all, its just he's trying WAY too hard to be Wiz Khalifa and all those mainstream fakes who got famous purely by luck. Prodigy is better than this, just check out the majority of his Mobb Deep material and the H.N.I.C album (the original one of course, not this). The production doesn't suit Prodigy in anyway, and with all the rhymes being about prision, hoes and drugs, one has to wonder if Prodigy has offically lost his old-school touch and has gone for the awful mainstream style.

I wasn't expecting a 90s type style classic from this album, but i was expecting some killer underground grimmy beats mixing with Prodigy's flow, we unfortanetly get none of that. Rappers from the 90s have now re-vamped themselves a bit, just look at Nas, but Nas has done it to the point where he still goes hard on every track and shows much love for the art of hip-hop, but Prodigy obviously released this to get some cash, but he has sold his soul and his legacy is tarnished in my opinion. This album sucks, sorry, but it does! Do not buy!!!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars 2/10 - Disappointing August 26, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Not even sure how I should start this, so I'll just jump right into it. What happened to P? He used to be so ill, but this entire album is terrible. He sounds tired and the lyrics are lazy and generic. At least 90% of this album consists of him talking about women. It gets really repetitive, and it sounds weird coming from Prodigy.

For those of you who don't know, Prodigy is one half of the Hip Hop duo Mobb Deep. This is his third solo album, and third release in the H.N.I.C. series. However, if I didn't know this was Prodigy prior to me listening to it, I would've never guessed it was him. The album starts off with "Without Rhyme or Reason" in which P doesn't really rhyme, at all. After my second listen it hit me, "Without Rhyme or Reason" was a literal statement. Either way, it winds up being a terrible waste of an excellent beat from Alchemist.

That first song really sums up the entire album, it just feels really awkward. Now I understand why Havoc has been going for Prodigy's head in some of his new songs. What I want to know is why is Havoc on here if he had problems with how the album was sounding? That means he was there for at least some of the recording sessions, so if he thought it was sounding corny shouldn't he have opened his mouth? For all we know his opinion might have completely changed how this album came out.

The guests are nothing special. The only one worth mentioning is Havoc on track eleven "Who You Bullsh**tin'." For the most part the production is pretty nice, but it definitely could have been better. The only producer I actually recognized was The Alchemist, but you also get Ty Fyffe, Beat Butcher, The Colombians, as well as a few others.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, but if you're a fan it may disappoint!!!! September 6, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This isn't a bad album but, being that it came from a guy who was once considered one of the best to do it, it may seem way worse than it is!!!! I bought it because I have been a fan of Mobb Deep from day one!!!! If you've never heard of them you may like this album better, Prodigy went for the mainstream on this and he actually does well!!!! When I listened as a fan I only enjoyed a few songs, and I mean a few like two or three tracks!!!! When I listened to it as just a listener, I enjoyed most of it and was really impressed, so we know he can pull it off but, what's up with the pants he had on on the cover?!!!

2.0 out of 5 stars ...average listen delivering nothing new September 10, 2012
By Dutch
Format:Audio CD
I don't know what went wrong here but this album just takes a downward spiral as it progressed. It starts with somewhat of a bang and then just progresses into a sense of mundance listening. The production is a hit and miss, where it starts well but gradually becomes uninspired and then picking up at the end. There are some bangers but the majority of the beats are adequate. Prodigy performs like his typical self with his laid back flow and average lyrics. This mere fact combined with the uninspired beats, does not bode well for the enjoyability and replayability. Then add the fact that there is no real structure to it with a heavy bit of gangster and <u>love</u> tracks, isn't this the Head N*gga in Charge!?!? An average listen delivering nothing new.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mobb Deep forever August 1, 2012
Format:Audio CD
It's very hard to please everyone. Prodigy just got out of jail and to put this cd out so soon, says alot.
The beats and the rhymes are on point. I'm not just saying this because i'm a Mobb Deep fan but come on haters.
If you think it's so easy, then let me see you put out a cd! Mobb Deep still holding it down after 20 years.
Not too many artist have that many years in the game. Artist are expanding and branching out. It's time for music listeners to do the the same. Mobb Deep forever.
