Before Mobb Deep's Havoc revealed anti-Prodigy disses came courtesy of a Twitter hacker yesterday (April 9), Terror Squad leader Fat Joe reflected on just how big of an impact their break-up would have on the rap game.
In Joey Crack's eyes, Mobb Deep represent the heart and soul of hip-hop.
"I know nothing about it. But what I'm saying to you is it's like a 9/11 in hip-hop, because when you refer to Mobb Deep, you refer to them as brothers, you refer to them as the purest form of hip-hop. Every time you try to do something that's so authentic in hip-hop, you always refer to 'Shook Ones' and Mobb Deep," Joe explained in an interview. "Overall, it's a super duper sad day in hip-hop. This group has been together for 20 years. I don't know the details, I'm not taking sides. What I can say is that it's sad for hip-hop, the whole hip-hop culture." (Peter Rosenberg)
Late last night, Hav released a statement denouncing the break-up rumors and fake tweets.
"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!" (Statement)
Earlier in the day, Prodigy stepped forward and said he would not take part in the alleged feud.
"ATTENTION: TO BE CLEAR @PRODIGYMOBDEEP IS A FAKE PAGE I DONT EVEN KNOW WHY SH*T IS VERIFIED TWITTER PEOPLE R ON SUM BULLSH*T RIGHT NOW SMH..," he tweeted April 9th.
"IM A FATHER ,AN ADULT, IM NOT HERE TO BEEF IM HERE TO MAKE MUSIC." (Prodigy's Twitter)
Stemming from the weekend into Monday morning, Havoc's Twitter shocked rap fans with disses aimed at his childhood friend.
"prodigy a hider not a rider," a tweet read from Hav's page.
