H.N.I.C. is the debut solo album from Mobb Deep member Prodigy. After four Mobb Deep albums, Prodigy took a temporary break from the group and released his first solo effort. "H.N.I.C." is an acronym for "Head Nigga In Charge". Prodigy enlisted a number of producers for the album, including The Alchemist, EZ Elpee, Rockwilder, Just Blaze and his Mobb Deep partner Havoc. The single "Keep It Thoro" received moderate video and radio rotation. A sequel, H.N.I.C. Pt. 2 was released April 22, 2008. It features production by Havoc, a fellow member of Mobb Deep.

The album was certified Gold by the RIAA on December 18, 2000.
