Prodigy enlisted a number of producers for the album, including The Alchemist, EZ Elpee, Rockwilder, Just Blaze and his Mobb Deep partner Havoc. Music videos were done for "Keep It Thoro" and "Y. B. E" (Young Black Entrepreneurs). The album received universal widespread critical acclaim. The song "Keep It Thoro" was released on vinyl. A sequel, H. N. I. C. Pt. 2 was released April 22, 2008.
