Prodigy is one half of the successful rap duo known as Mobb Deep. H.N.I.C. Pt. 2 promises to be the return of Prodigy fans and critics know and love. Look for Prodigy to drop his harsh reality-based rhymes about the darker side of urban life with an unbalanced and sedate flow. Prodigy has undoubtedly proved himself to be a visionary solo artist and H.N.I.C. Pt. 2 will further solidify his status as one of todays premier artists.
Mobb Deep s Prodigy has embraced the chaos, pain and disarray that s cursed much of his life and used to power an angry, pained, and ironically vital album, H.N.I.C. Part 2. Prodigy s physical self may be incarcerated, but his music has never sounded freer. --Vibe Magazine
Prodigy s H.N.I.C. Part 2 is completely gripping. 4 out of 5 stars. --Spin Magazine
Prodigy s Return of the Mac was a banger that placed him back in the court of hip-hop royalty and now H.N.I.C. Part 2 will seal the deal. P has the ability, in his straightforwardness, to be both completely loony and sound. This is all of what makes Prodigy a legend. --Rawkus.com

The way Prodigy rhymes are different on a lot of these songs. On the single, "The Life", he rhymes the same way he did on early Mobb Deep albums, such as The Infamous, and Hell on Earth. The flow on this song is sick, untouchable, and is much to the liking of fans that prefer the way he spat rhymes back then. On songs, like "I Want Out," "Real Power is People", and "Click Clack," his style is reminiscent to his style on the mixtape, "Return of the Mac (that being laid back, and a slower, haunting style).
Production on this album is handled by Apex (produced 50 Cent's single, I Get Money), Sid Roams (produced for The Infamous Mobb and Dilated Peoples), The Alchemist, and Havoc. The Alchemist provides more eerie, and urgent-themed beats than he did on RotM. Sid Roams provide the dark, haunting beats, very fitting for Prodigy's dark lyrics. On the Sid Roams-produced song, "ABC," the theme is Prodigy vs. crooked cops. Prodigy himself stated that he wanted to keep the list of producers simple, where there's not a song on the album where you'll want to skip. The album is consistent from beginning to end. Guests on the album include Un Pacino, Havoc, and Twin Gambino. They all do their thing (especially on the epic song, "I Want Out", a perfect way to end the album). Cormega was supposed to be a guest, (you'll see his verse in the booklet) on the song "When I See U", but you'll only hear P spit his 2 verses on that song.
Does this album live up to Return of the Mac? Well, I'd say that they're on the same level, which is a good thing, considering that RotM was already a great album.
If you're a huge Mobb Deep fan, and enjoyed RotM, you'd be hard-pressed not to keep this album in heavy rotation. If not, it's still definitely worth a listen if you're a hip hop fan.
I remember back in 2008 when this 2nd H.N.I.C. album by Prodigy came out, I bought it, I listened to it, and I found out it was a good album. I also have three albums by Mobb Deep and with Prodigy rapping with partner Havoc, and their also good albums. And I also have a 2002 album by an accociated rap group called Infamous Mobb, and that's also a good album. Prodigy is even featured on that album with Infamous Mobb.
It's also known that Prodigy passed away on 6/17/2017, but his music will still live on with memories of him as a good rapper. And when I first knew Prodigy from Mobb Deep, I thought he was a good rapper. So lets continue remember him in his music.
And I'm just so glad I bought the first H.N.I.C. by Prodigy to have and listen to along with this 2nd H.N.I.C. album, so now I feel like I have everything that Prodigy came out with, including the three albums that I have by Mobb Deep.
Previous albums that I have by Prodigy and that came out before this album is
(Mobb Deep) 1995 album
(Mobb Deep) 1999 album
(Prodigy) 2000 album
(Mobb Deep) 2001 album
And a 2002 rap album that I also have by Infamous Mobb is called "Special Edition", an album and an accociated rap group that Prodigy used to rap with, and that's also a good album. That album even has a song that Prodigy is featured on, and it's also a good song.
I have all these five previous albums by Prodigy, including one by Infamous Mobb, and their also good albums. And this 2nd H.N.I.C. album by Prodigy is a good album itself.
So this 2nd H.N.I.C. album and all the five previous albums that I have by Prodigy is good enough for me to have and listen to.
