     Prodigy and Havoc, better known as the rap group Mobb Deep, recently spoke with MTV about their peers like the Lost Boyz. Mobb Deep says that they wish they still had a chance to do a song with the group.

“I definitely wasn’t checking for other people” Havoc revealed. “I missed a lot of stuff in the ’90s that I like now. I just had tunnel vision. There was a lot of dope acts that was out back in the ’90s, like the Lost Boyz. I never paid attention to their stuff.”
The Lost Boyz — a rap group from South Jamaica, Queens, New York — broke out in 1995 with their hit record “Jeeps, Lex Coups, Bimaz & Benz,” and though they were known for high-powered party anthems, Hav wasn’t a fan in their heyday. He is today, though. “Now, when I look back on it and I listen to their stuff now, it’s like, ‘Yo, they had that sh–.’ They always kept the party poppin’. I really appreciate their music, and I’m glad that they made it,” he said. “That’s ill that they are even a part of the era that we came from.” (MTV)
