Prodigy and Havoc off Mobb Deep beefing with each other on Twitter? Nobody wanted to believe that the Queensbridge rap duo could call it quits and sully almost two decades worth of murderous hits like “Shook Ones Part II” and “Quiet Storm,” and sinister album cuts like “Still Shining,” over a squabble that spilled over onto the Internets.
About two weeks ago, Hip-Hop Wired spoke with Prodigy, who was excited about the prospect of going on tour and penning an anthem for the New York Knicks, whose bench is calling themselves “Mob Deep.” We specifically asked P how Mobb Deep was able to stay together when so many rap groups have called it quits over the years. “We just some serious thinkers, we think far into the future,” said Prodigy. “Even if problems arise, we already way ahead where we like, ‘Hold up, f-ck this bullsh-t, we still trying to go this sh-t over hear.’ Some people can’t get through that. Some people can’t see past their nose and they ain’t got no goal they striving for. But Mobb Deep, we always got it in our mind that we trying to go down in history as one of the longest rap groups in rap history, in Hip-Hop history, in music history.”
