A Queens-bred rap duo is performing a free concert in their native neighborhood Thursday night.

Mobb Deep, who recently reunited for “The Infamous Mobb Deep,” their eighth album, will be appearing at 7 p.m. in Queensbridge Park, as part of SummerStage, the city’s largest free performing arts festival.

The famed pair, Havoc and Prodigy, grew up in the Queensbridge area of the borough, but met in Manhattan, where they were students at Graphic Arts High School, according to a biography on their website.

After bonding through their love of hip hop, they built a successful career with 20 years of music industry experience, and appearances on records that have sold over 40 million copies.

Queensbridge Park is located near the Queensboro Bridge at 41st Road and 40th Avenue between The East River, Vernon Boulevard and 21st Street.
