Mobb Deep’s Prodigy has finally addressed recent disses shot his way from estranged longtime friend Havoc and came clean on getting accused of being a closeted hip-hop artist.
Denying Hav’s gay claim, Capital P said he is most focused on working and not beefing with the Mobb Deep member.
“Nah, you know Hav don’t deserve that,” Prodigy said in an interview when asked if Havoc deserves to get shot. “[Have I ever participated in any homosexual activity?] H*ll f*cking no! H*ll no. I’ma tell you like this, the only thing I can really say is, you know what I mean, what I’ve been doing since I came home [in spring 2011], putting books out, putting out albums, mixtapes, you know, I started my own lable, I got a distribution deal, running around, setting up these tours, getting merchandising deals, getting endorsement deals, that’s all I really know, dog. [Have I asked him about the disses?] Nah. I just want to work, man — shout-out ot Havoc too, shout-out ot Hav. Word. That’s my dog. [Anything else I want to tell people?] I don’t have anything against gay people, dog. I’ve got some family members that are gay, I know some people that are gay, I got a couple of gay friends.” (This Is 50)
Recently, buzz developed on Prodigy and Hav possibly ending their feud.
I got word from one of the AHH staffers that Mobb Deep may have ended the beef. You know, this is a beef none of us want to see, and we definitely want more music from P and Hav. Well, here is no need in BS’ing you. I hear the mess ain’t over yet. They are still at odds at this very moment. But, sources have revealed to me that these dudes don’t want to fight anymore and there are forces looking to bring them back together. Hip-Hop hopes this happens! (All Hip Hop Rumors)
In August, Hav released a music video for his perceived Prodigy diss track, “Separated (Real From The Fake).”
Two weeks back former Mobb Deep member Havoc released a new track from his solo EP blatantly ripping into his former partner and best friend Prodigy. Havoc never makes mention of Prodigy by name, but it’s easy to tell who the subject of his verbal attack is. Well now we have some visuals to aid us in our listen to the track, entitled Separated. Since Mobb Deep officially Separated a few weeks ago I have been in a state of Mobb Depression. I now find myself skipping all the Mobb Deep songs on my iPhone out of pure devastation.

In late July, the producer/rapper came clean on lying about his Twitter getting hacked in April and confessed to dissing P.
“The tweets is crazy,” said Havoc. “So it was you?” asked Creekmur. “Yeah,” said Havoc. “And I was speaking of a stand point of being mad, but still being truthful of how I felt – but it was just the wrong thing to do at that time.” As for the state of Mobb Deep, Havoc says they are taking a break.”Right now Mobb Deep is on hiatus, indefinitely…until things get hashed out,” Havoc told AllHipHop.com. “Eventually, the real story will come out; there’s two sides to every story. Only one has been spoken for.” (All Hip Hop)
