Crime Mob is getting back together.
Ten years after releasing their album Hated on Mostly, the Atlanta collective has reunited. Over the weekend, Diamond, Princess, Lil’ J, M.I.G., and Cyco Black teamed up at the V-103 Live concert in the group’s hometown.
Building off of the performance, Crime Mob is headed back in the studio for their third album, which is expected this year, according to Lil’ J. “Album number 3 is coming up next,” he told V-103. “2017.”
Princess spoke on the reunion, as well, celebrating the fact that the group is finally ready to release new material. “It was good to be in Atlanta, to do it here first,” she said. “I’m glad y’all called us to do this. It’s been a longtime coming but we had to come back and do it right. Now, the timing is right, the energy is right, we got our heads right. Now it’s time to get that money right.”
Ahead of this, Diamond and Princess are also planning to release a joint project as a duo. More news on this should be coming in “about a week or two,” according to the twosome.
In 2004, Crime Mob released its debut self-titled LP, which spawned the Lil Scrappy-assisted single “Knuck If You Buck.” In 2007, Hated on Mostly dropped, along with “Rock Yo Hips,” which peaked at No. 30 on the Billboard Hot 100.
