Gone Off The “Deep” End?Posted: April 9, 2012
By Ryan Scerra
Former hip hop duo, Mobb Deep, seem to have finally lost all patience with each other. Co-founder of Mobb Deep, Havoc, just yesterday went on a twitter rant calling out the other co-founder of the duo, Prodigy, of being a fake.
In the rant, put together by hiphopDX, Havoc discusses how Prodigy had sexual relations with other inmates while incarcerated. Prodigy was serving a three year term for a gun-possession charge. He was released on March 7, 2011.
Mobb Deep is considered as one of the greatest hip hop groups in the history of the industry. They claimed this spot on the throne with their debut album, The Infamous, which is considered as one of, if not the best hip hop album ever made.
Now there is a massive buzz circulating around the internet today after the recent comments made by Havoc suggesting Prodigy having sexual intercourse with inmates while in jail.
Havoc stated: “P IS HIDING!!! IM GONNA SHOW U P GETTING KNOCKED OUT!!!!!!!!!!!! WATCH HE TRY TO DODGE ME!! THINK ABOUT IT… HOW COULD HE SAY,,, QB MURDERERS ??? LETS DO A ONE ON ONE!!!!! ME AND P!!! HE SO BUTTTT HE WILL AVOID!!!!
Many hip hop fans are very upset by these recent allegations. Whether they are true or not is not the issue, it’s the fact that an iconic hip hop duo have officially became enemies.
“It’s a sad day in hip hop” stated Ghostface Killah, member of the famous Wu-Tang Clan, via twitter. Prodigy doesn’t have a twitter account but the news is sure to hit him soon enough. The question is how Prodigy will react and what will happen.
Havoc seems to be sending an open invitation to Prodigy to fight. My question is why is Havoc trying to start this controversy. Sure none of us knows what happened behind those prison walls, but what happened there isn’t news to share with the entire world. In my opinion Havoc should just keep his mouth shut and settle this in person with Prodigy like a man.
Fortunately for fans, music lasts a lifetime. All hip hop fans should feel blessed to have be able to go back and listen to the hip hop glory that is Mobb Deep. If “The Infamous” is not yet in your Itunes, you haven’t truly completed your hip hop library.
Hopefully these two can settle their differences. If not we still have songs like Shook Ones Part 2 for us to reminisce over and enjoy forever. You can listen to the song below.
