After Bowie died, we learned about so many songs he declined to appear on. With Prince, we’ve learned about so many songs he secretly made.
If you’re a fan of podcasts like The Combat Jack Show and ItsTheReal’s A Waste of Time, then you should be listening to Noreaga’s Drink Champs pod, if you aren’t already. Mobb Deep’s Havoc is the guest on an upcoming episode and in a preview clip obtained by TMZ the Queensbridge rapper reveals that Prince plays on the Snoop Dogg-featuring track ‘Thou Shall Not Kill’.
Prince happened to be in Electric Lady Studios in New York at the same time that Mobb Deep were recording. He came into the room where Havoc was working on a beat and helped him tinker with the keys. Prince’s retooling remains on the track, but he is not credited. In fact, he didn’t even say bye when he left the recording session.
Watch Havoc talk about the experience and listen to ‘Thou Shall Not Kill’ below.
