Mobb Deep's Prodigy Is A Tupac Fan Despite Beef


(Radio.com) Mobb Deep was a big part of the '90s east coast/west coast beefs, and on the latest episode of the Rap Radar podcast on CBS Radio's Play.it. In fact, he told hosts Elliott Wilson and Brian "B-Dog" Miller that he became a fan of his adversary Tupac during the beef.

"We was living that s," Prodigy explained. 'That was our mindstate anywhere we at. I don't care where we going' I'm just prepared for that s at any time."

West coast legend Tupac Shakur had taken plenty of shots at New York rappers as a whole grouping together rappers like The Notorious B.I.G., Junior Mafia and Mobb Deep in songs like 'Hit 'Em Up" and 'Hail Mary."

"I wasn't a big Tupac fan, I liked his songs like 'Dear Mama,' 'Keep Ya Head Up' and all of those," he said. 'All of that was before the drama and all that but I wasn't a big, big Tupac fan until he started the songs going at us. I was like 'That's hard, son.' On that 'Hail Mary' track I was like 'He coming hard now,' that's when I became a real Tupac fan."

Prodigy laughed as he explained this but he maintained that those diss tracks were how Shakur gained his respect. Mobb Deep wasn't ready to back down from Shakur and the rest of Death Row Records, who were taking shots at the young New York rappers. Read more here.
