- If you build it they will come, and if you sustain it they will help it grow. Today (January 30th) Mobb Deep has announced plans to reward fans who pre-order their upcoming double disc album The Infamous Mobb Deep through their partnership with direct-to-fan music platform, PledgeMusic.
Fans who preorder the upcoming double disc album will be given behind-the-scenes footage of the creation of the album, unreleased songs, signed t-shirts and vinyl, along with more. The rewards will be divided in a tier system with those pledging more receiving high level gifts such as a private show, drinks with Prodigy and more.
Less than a month after starting the campaign on January 7th, it has over 180 pledges and has reached over 60% of its goal with under 37 days left. In a statement on theirPlegeMusic page, Havoc and Prodigy spoke on the importance of giving back to the fans:
For us, it’s never necessarily been about the numbers. It’s the love. You grind for the best, but we really want to just do our thing and satisfy the people who love us.
The Infamous Mobb Deep will be the group’s seventh full length studio album and their first since their one and only album under G-Unit Records, 2006′s Blood Money. The double disc album will feature one CD with all new material and a remastered version of their 1995 seminal album The Infamous on the second CD. The Infamous Mobbb Deep will be released in April, a month after the PledgeMusic campaign is scheduled to end.
In support of the new album, Mobb Deep is currently on the road for their 31-date The Infamous Mobb Deep tour. Check out all of the tour dates below:
