Heds & Dreds: Prodigy of Mobb Deep Channels Classic Dancehall on “Hoodie Weather”

Words by Richard “Treats” Dryden

droog-hoodie-weather

Prodigy of Mobb Deep has had many aliases—Bandana P, Don P, Bumpy Johnson—during his 20 years in rap music. His latest appearance, in a featured verse on “Hoodie Weather” alongside buzzing newcomer Your Old Droog, suggests that he might be due for a West Indian-inspired alias, as he switches to a Jamaican accent interpolating lyrics from Shelly Thunder’s “Kuff” over Marco Polo’s beat. (“Don’t you know you haffi respect me, a wheelchair see they act properly/Sometimes a man fi-get, you haffi get violent.”) Prodigy’s wink to one of our all-time favorite lady deejays comes fresh off his recent trip to Jamaica’s Calabash book fair to promote his Infamous Books imprint this past spring. We’re told P spent a few days after his business trip catching vibes dung ah yahd, in what we hear was his first ever vacation. A break from work is hardly in P’s vocabulary, as he even questioned the mere idea of a vacation in his autobiography, My Infamous Life. But by the looks of his travels this year, and now from the patois in his rhyme a few months later, Jamaica has left a lasting impression on him.

It’s Carnival Week in New York, and pretty much everyone has already gotten the party started, including BET’s eternal 106 & Park—or, as it was titled today, “106 & Carnival,” complete with slightly uncomfortable-looking hosts in mas band costumes. The episode featured a mix of up-and-coming and veteran dancehall, reggae, and soca artists in front of an audience repping just about every part of the Caribbean.
