December 6, 2007 new shit...

yup. prodigy's back with another solo joint, h.n.i.c 2. a lot folks don't know, but i modeled a lot of my rap style after prodigy. back when i first started, in l.a., the rap standard was a bunch of big words and "roller coaster" syllable play -- but, it just got played out to me quick. i remember grabbing the infamous cd and buggin' out. prodigy said everything he needed to say without me having to flip through a dictionary or hit rewind to understand him. very simple. like he was talking.

"you featherweight, my gunshots'll make you levitate..."

i wanted to get my style there. simple, yet hard-hitting, without the metaphors or crazy analogies. p just said it.

"rock you in your face, stab your brain wit your nose bone..."
