Comment: Damn I ain't been feeling Prodigy like this since "Keep It Thoro" off Prodigy's much slept one solo debut “H.N.I.C." “Return of The Mac" is the title track, which boldly and effectively pronounces both Prodigy and New York's return, to Prodigy's new album. Paying homage to Biggie on this joint, Prodigy borrows Biggie's classic “I got eleven Mac Elevens, thirty-eight Thirty-Eights, nine Nines, ten Mac Tens…" for the typical grimy, non-R&B Mobb Deep hook. It's as though Prodigy just rewound the clock and took us back to '94 when Biggie, Wu Tang, and Mobb Deep brought the East Coast back to hip hop relevance, while at the same time redefining the gully New York sound. Alchemist plays his part in recreating this sound and feel, sampling Biggie's voice from two different songs of that era. The chemistry of Alchemist and Prodigy, longtime collaborators, is truly captured on this track, which fittingly is subtitled “New York Shit". Actually, Prodigy's entire new album is produced by the Alchemist, and we are fortunate for it.
