With Prodigy finally home from serving a three-year gun conviction sentence, SOHH recently hit up the Mobb Deep frontman to get the scoop on the chances of him forming a truce with rap rival Saigon.
While he believes peace talks could possibly occur, Capital P says he isn’t rushing to make up with the “Yard Father”.
“I haven’t really been thinking about that, really, to tell you the truth,” P told SOHH when asked about reconciling with Saigon. “It would be nice, you know what I’m saying? It would be a good thing if we did that but it’s just kind of weird to me. You know what I’m saying? It’s kind of weird to me. That’s definitely not something I’m interested in right now. You know what I’m saying? I’m trying to really focus on this Mobb Deep thing and this album. I’ll definitely try to improve and fix relationships with certain people, so maybe sometime in the near future that could happen. You know what I mean?” (SOHH)
This week, P struck fans’ ears after sharing his thoughts on Sai.
“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)
In January, Sai said he no longer had any issues with P and wished him the best.
“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 which eventually turned into a physical altercation.
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.
