Mobb Deep’s Prodigy has displayed his support for the state of hip-hop by revealing his admiration toward rap veteran Lil Kim and newcomer Nicki Minaj despite their ongoing feud.
Refusing to take sides, Capital P said he is a fan of what both female emcees bring to the table.
“@IAMMACK_KANG7 peace …i luv everybody. even the devils.. not in our nature to hate,” he tweeted Friday (May 20).

Last week, Prodigy and Havoc surprised New York fans by bringing Kim out at one of their reunion shows.
Just a few minutes ago, the Egotrip collective and Complex put together one of the most anticipated East Coast rap shows of the year. After over 3-years behind bars, Prodigy was reunited withHavoc onstage at the first official Mobb Deep concert since P’s release. Mobb, joined by Big Noyd and Alchemist took the stage without missing one step. Surprisingly, the fellas hit the stage around 10:30 pm, which is pretty unheard of at a Mobb Deep show, so things got rocking pretty quick. With a live band behind them, the pride of Queensbridge took fans all throughout their catalog including classics like “Start of Your Ending”, “Shook Ones Pt. 2? and to their new school hits, “Burn” and “Getaway.” But sh*t definitely went to the next thug-o-sphere when the Queen Bee made a surprise appearance to perform her part on “Quiet Storm (Remix).” (Miss Info TV)
Last month, Minaj dropped her anti-Kim record snippet, “Tragedy.”
“Eh yo, Pink Friday, Eminem, 8 Mile,” Nicki raps, “It must hurt to sell your album off PayPal/Especially when you’re in the game, 15-20/You was hot when Shaq teamed up with Penny/Man, you was ‘Magic’, I mean/Look at you now, h*e, you’re just tragic/You a tragedy, you a parody/Last name Ann, first name Raggedy/These goofy b*tches is stupidity personified…” (“Tragedy”)
Prior to the “Tragedy” diss, Minaj went after Kim’s head on “Roman’s Revenge” last fall.
It looks like listeners were right all along. While interviewing with Angie Martinez during Hot 97’s VIP Lounge earlier today (November 19), Nicki Minaj finally admitted the target for her collaboration with Eminem, “Roman’s Revenge” is in fact Lil’ Kim. “You gotta be careful when you pick fights,” Minaj said, referring to the Queen Bee. “That’s what I’ve learned in this business. I think people mistake me for a real Barbie and forget where I’m from. They forget where I’m from. And if I have to revert back, I can and I will.” (XXL Mag)
