Early this morning, the Internets were all in a huff over slanderous tweets that were thought to be coming from Havoc of Mobb Deep and aimed at his long time rhyme co-d Prodigy. In a series of tweets, Havoc's @THEREALHAVOC account called Capital P everything but a child of God while alleging that he engaged in homos-xual acts while he was locked up. The fellow Queensbridge rapper and accomplished producer also threatened P with the fade on sight. Well in a dramatic turn of events, by social media standards, Havoc claims that it was all a case of a stolen cell phone.
The H.A.V.O.C. issued the following statement:
"Just getting back into NY after my Easter weekend with family and friends in Jersey. I left my phone at a gas station yesterday evening while on my way to Jersey after a glorious Knick's game. To all Mobb Deep fans: it's business as usual! It's Mobb Deep all day!!! My twitter account @THEREALHAVOC will be down until further notice. The only other real account is @PRODIGYMOBBDEEP. Ignore the rest. One!"
Earlier this evening, Prodigy—who recently told Hip-Hop Wired about Mobb Deep's formula for longevity—issued a short statement of his own, via Twitter. "ATTENTION: TO BE CLEAR
@PRODIGYMOBDEEP IS A FAKE PAGE I DONT EVEN KNOW WHY SH-T IS VERIFIED TWITTER PEOPLE R ON SUM BULLSHIT RIGHT NOW SMH..," he tweeted. "IM A FATHER ,AN ADULT, IM NOT HERE TO BEEF IM HERE TO MAKE MUSIC."
This whole debacle sounds suspicious. What do you think? Are the Infamous victims of identity theft or is this a cover up?
