Last year, Mobb Deep‘s Prodigy released an EP entitled The Ellsworth Bumpy Johnson to limited fanfare. The project saw him team up with long-term associate The Alchemist and production duo Sid Roams, acts who were well-suited to the New Yorker’s sound, but Prodigy struggled to make much of an impression with it.
Well now he’s re-releasing the EP as The Bumpy Johnson Album, with five new tracks and just as strong production credits. The new project will drop on October 2nd. If Prodigy can sound a little bit less lackadaisical than he did over the original EP’s excellent beats, then it should make for fine listening.
I still listen to The Infamous about once every two weeks, so I’ve got my fingers crossed.
