While Prodigy may be looking to patch up relationships since being released from jail last month, the Mobb Deep frontman is not yet ready to settle his issues with rap rival Saigon.
When asked about possibly linking up with Sai, P turned down the idea.
"To tell you the truth, we ain't even worried about that," P said in an interview. "He's a flea. You know what I'm saying? On some real sh*t. Like, he's a nobody. Like, we ain't worried about him. He's not even the type of rapper that I would want to do a song with. You know what I'm saying? Like, that's how corny he is to me. I ain't really worried about him. He has no power or strength in the streets. He's not on our level at all." (This Is 50)
Despite P's words, Sai previously spoke highly on the Mobb Deep rapper being released from jail last January.
"I'm happy man," Sai said when asked for his reaction to P's release in March. "I don't wish jail on my worst enemy. So 'Free Prodigy'. I'm happy he coming home man. Hopefully you get it back, get your career back to where you need to be. Take care of your seeds...I don't know where he stands. Some dudes got chips on their shoulders. What we had was a little quarrel. It happens, it happens. If he harboring animosity, so be it man. As long as he plays his position, I'm gonna play mine's. It's that simple. I got love for any black man trying to do their thing. I never did, like, [have] a personal dislike for Prodigy. I never did. I grew up listening to them all day. I used to love Mobb Deep music. I was influenced by Mobb Deep music at one point. When I was a shorty, I used to go crazy -- I f*cked up a lot of people off their music. It was a good thing -- this dude had influenced my life at one point. I don't harbor animosity. What we got in to, it happens sometimes. Dudes fight and it is what it is. I wish that man the best. He got outta there in one piece. I wish him nothing but success." (AHH Video)
Issues between the two surfaced around March 2007 over an interview.
To give some insight on the beef for those who may not be aware of it's existance, it began a while back on an online interview with Prodigy when he was asked if he liked Saigon, where P replied, "I don't like him....I only like Mobb Deep s**t. Everybody else could suck my d**k." Not surprisingly, Saigon didn't take those words too kind as Saigon later on responded saying that he's had an altercation with Mobb Deep before and then threatened to beat Prodigy like a pinata if he was to ever catch him without an entourage just because of Prodigy saying suck my d**k alone.

Earlier this month, P revealed his intent on patching past issues up with Nas.
"We had a real long, interesting conversation about the future and how we want to move forward with our music, just everything like that," P said about Nas. "But mostly about how we need to put our little bullsh*t aside, and how our music is more important than any of that bullsh*t that we were going through. Right away, we sent him the song 'Dog Sh*t' that we had did, and he got on it, and it's coming out crazy. We did a couple of other songs with him that we haven't put out yet." (Complex)
