Prodigy Pulls Track From New Album for 'Grand Theft Auto IV' (PS3/X360)

What does the American dream mean today? For Niko Bellic fresh off the boat from Europe, it is the hope he can escape from his past. For his cousin, Roman, it is the vision that together they can find fortune in Liberty City, gateway to the land of opportunity. As they slip into debt and get dragged into a criminal underworld by a series of shysters, thieves and sociopaths, they discover that the reality is very different from the dream in a city that worships money and status, and is heaven for those who have them and a living nightmare for those who don't.

"Dirty New Yorker" one of the songs from the H.N.I.C. Pt. 2 sessions will be featured on the Grand Theft Auto IV game and soundtrack. Prodigy removed the song, featuring Mobb Deep member Havoc, from the H.N.I.C. Pt. 2 album so "Dirty New Yorker" could be placed on the latest game in the Grand Theft Auto franchise. The video for "Dirty New Yorker" has been added to H.N.I.C. Pt. 2 as a bonus feature on the album.

Prodigy, one of hip hop's legendary lyricists said, "I am proud to be able to provide a lyrical picture which defines the grittiness and lawlessness in Liberty City, the latest city exposed in the Grand Theft Auto franchise. My music provides a harsh reality to the surroundings the game portrays."

The new album H.N.I.C. Pt. 2 returns "P" to the more edgy real life street tales that have been Mobb Deep's signature for nearly a decade. Produced by The Alchemist and Havoc, the album is released on Voxonic Music in association with AAO/Reality.

H.N.I.C. Part 2 will be released on April 22, 2008. Grand Theft Auto IV will be released on April 29, 2008.
