Mobb Deep With Potential ‘The Wire’ Stars for Biopic Casting

Tray Chaney and JD Williams, familiar faces from the renowned series “The Wire,” are actively vying for roles to portray the iconic rap duo Mobb Deep in a potential biopic. Their aspirations have found favor with Havoc, one half of the legendary group, who expresses admiration for their credentials.

Recently, Chaney marked his reunion with Williams on a new episode of 50 Cent’s “BMF” series, sparking speculation about their potential casting as Havoc and the late Prodigy, respectively, in an envisioned Mobb Deep biopic.

Havoc, speaking to TMZ Hip Hop, lauds the pair as ideal choices to embody and honor the enduring legacy of Mobb Deep. He perceives the prospect of a motion picture chronicling the group’s journey as a welcome addition, especially considering the ample filming opportunities afforded by 50 Cent’s newly established Louisiana studio.


Mobb Deep was an influential hip hop duo consisting of Havoc (Kejuan Muchita) and Prodigy (Albert Johnson). Formed in Queens, New York, in the early 1990s, Mobb Deep rose to prominence with their gritty and authentic portrayal of street life in their lyrics. They became renowned for their raw storytelling, vivid imagery, and atmospheric production, often characterized by dark, haunting beats.

Their seminal album “The Infamous” (1995) is considered a classic in East Coast hip hop, featuring tracks like “Shook Ones Pt. II” and “Survival of the Fittest,” which became anthems for the ’90s hip hop scene. Mobb Deep continued to release critically acclaimed albums throughout the ’90s and 2000s, solidifying their status as one of the most respected rap groups in the industry.

Tragically, Prodigy passed away in 2017, but Mobb Deep’s impact on hip hop culture remains significant, with their music continuing to influence generations of artists with their delivery and content.
