Mobb Deep‘s Prodigy has social media buzzing after appearing to respond to reports about him having to make a Twitter post this week about a publicized legal dispute with Universal Music.
Capital P appeared to reference R&B singer Rihanna’s “B*tch Better Have My Money” with a hashtag Tuesday (March 1).
Details of Prodigy’s resolution with Universal Music all boiling down to Twitter surfaced online hours prior to his RiRi reference.
Under the settlement, Universal Music Publishing Group will fork over $153,751.21 to Prodigy’s lawyers … with one string attached. Prodigy must publicly declare the feud is over, with this specific tweet: “My dispute with UMPG was all a misunderstanding. Thankful that we resolved it quickly and happy to be continuing my long-standing relationship with UMPG.” (TMZ)
Later this week, Mobb Deep are embarking on a celebration tour.
Another year, another anniversary to celebrate. After celebrating the 20th year since its classic LP The Infamous with a double album and tour, today Mobb Deep announces a 38-date U.S. outing to celebrate two decades of its third album, 1996’s Hell On Earth. The first date will be in Philadelphia Mar. 5, and the duo will welcome Smif-N-Wessun and the Dogg Pound on selected dates. (Billboard)
Prodigy previously spoke to SOHH and said he had developed a knack for letting music reflect his life.
“I mean all of my song lyrics are from my real life. We coined the phrase “reality rap”. That’s our phrase that we called it many years ago. So when I write my songs, I talk about my real life, what’s going on in my life, the ups, the downs, when I’m in love, when I’m angry, when I feel good, when I’m just chilling,” P told SOHH. “I put it all into the music because everybody don’t want to be angry all day.” (SOHH)
