Now that the Mobb Deep breakup saga is seemingly over, with a hacker being blamed on Havoc’s inflammatory tweets, Prodigy sat down with Hot 97’s Cipha Sounds & Rosenberg yesterday (April 17) morning to set the record straight.
After being grilled by CS and Rosenberg to tell the truth and shame the Devil, P admitted he is still somewhat clueless as to how the whole situation blew up. “I can’t even tell you how it happened,” said P. “All I can say is that when we got down to the bottom of it, me and Hav realized what was going on, we knew it was all bogus.”
Prodigy acknowledged that when the duo didn’t come forward immediately to clarify the situation it may have looked like something was afoot for someone on the outside looking in. “We didn’t get up on Twitter and be like its bogus. So that’s probably why people think we set it up or something. We just waited for a minute, and we was like, ‘You know what? They’ll see when we at the game and we working on this album putting out singles that it’s all a bunch of nothing.”
The “Shook Ones” rapper even admitted to using the situation to his advantage. “Really, me and Hav are businessmen. We stepped back and was like, ‘Alright, how can we use this to our advantage. And basically we was like, ‘Alright well, P got an album bout to drop. Just wait, do the interviews and promote your sh#t like you supposed to.’”
“Me and Hav, its business as usual,” he added. “We good.”
With so many conflicting stories and information its hard to tell who to believe. But if they say they are cool, they are cool. Right?
