Via http://www.heydayfootwear.com. It was just six months ago that Born I Music rapped that he had "old Mobb Deep in his ipod shuffle" in his groundbreaking All I Want is You Freestyle. As fate would have it, 6 months later, the world has both Born and Mobb Deep together in the scorching new single Limelight. Produced by DC's J-Scrilla, Limelight's heavy drums and cinematic samples let Born, Havoc and Prodigy remain true to form, trading crazy, heavy, bars over Scrilla's paranoid, hypnotic production. "Limelight" serves as the lead single for Heyday Footwear's "Heyday Mixtape" (it was the Mixtape's co-exec producer Jules Renae who brought Born & Mobb Deep together, clearly a wise choice!).

"Nuclear Winter represents many things. It represents dark times in our lives, it represents the state of NY hip hop & how I feel about it, & it represents my blueprint on how I think the music should be done going forward into the future. This is my manifesto to all the people that doubted me & the kryptonite to all selfishness. It's a journey from darkness into light, & from bondage & the huge amounts of weight on our shoulders to breaking free and regaining our freedom. Nuclear Winter we're coming to take shine....." - Willie Maze
