PRINCE PLAYED ON A MOBB DEEP TRACK ... WHO KNEW?

OK, I've listened and can't hear it (unless it's the repeated "thou shall not kill")

Mobb Deep is one of the best rap groups ever. Their best known song is called "Shook Ones". "The Infamous", the 2nd album is not for the faint at heart, but if you like boom bap baets and lyricism, you should check it out.

There is literally no information on the internet about this, and the track sounds nothing like what Prince was doing in 96.

Yup Prince Vault about to add this track into their list then nod Go ahead and punch it in guys, looks like we got another one

Download all the shit hop that you can for your kids, neices, nephews, and their friends also. That will prevent them from going out and buying it and will prevent some shit hop sales. Every little bit helps - Andy

and so delisciously prince. you ask him to be on your track and he accepts,

though he won't be on your track, he'll write and record you a 20 second
coda to stick at the end of it, a coda which is as good as the entire track lol
and *69 is already a cool track.

and true love lives on lollipops and crisps

In the current issue of Rolling Stone Gwen Stefani is interviewed in the Q&A feature:

RS- You collaborated with Prince a couple of times. What was that like?

He was such a genius that you can't believe he existed. I was onstage with No Doubt in Minneapolis in the nineties, and I saw his silhouette in the audience. I was like, "How is this happening?"

Later, I sent him the demo to the song"Waiting Room" - he called and said, "Hey, I had to rewrite the song, but I think you're going to like it."

He played on the version you hear on No Doubt's Rock Steady album,and I sang on his album. He sat at the board and sang me every single note. I was in there for, like, 8 hours.

Does anyone know to which Prince song Gwen is referring to singing on?

Yeah, it was So Far, So Pleased from the Rave album. It's a cool little song imo, tends to divide opinion on here a bit but I've always liked it's cute poppy charm.

Michael Dean (From the Prince podcast) posted the interview clip on his FB wall. Cool back story. I love the fact that he was accessible to his peers and up coming artists.

I'd be so curious to hear what the original demo sounded like. Big no doubt fan. I'm wondering if he's referring to rewriting the music, lyrics, or both.

A lazy four-note lead line not worth listening to (and ANYONE could have played.. with their toe!)
