In an interview with XXL Prodigy spoke his feelings about Jay-Z. Here’s what he had to say…..
“He’s always gonna be Gay-Z no matter what. We could do business or even if he wants a beat from Havoc, that nigg*’s still Gay-Z to me. We seen each other in Justin’s [right after the infamous 2001 Summer Jam, where the Jay/Mobb Deep/Nas beef took off]. I was with a whole bunch of my nigg*s. It was just him and like one or two security guards. Soon as he seen me, he just walked straight up to me with his hand out like, “Yo, it’s all love. It ain’t beef. It’s just rap.” I’m like, “Yeah, aright whatever.” He seen how I could of did him. We Mobb Deep. It’s not a game. It’s for real, son. It’s a whole gang of us. We not playing. We from the ‘hood. He thought we were gonna pounce on him. My n*gg*s wanted to jump on him. The Summer Jam thing didn’t really upset me. That’s just reality.
When I was younger I thought I was Michael Jackson and my grandmother had a dance school. That’s nothing to be ashamed of. Everybody my age wanted a Michael Jackson jacket back then. But Jay-Z was lying talking about ballerina pictures. People who weren’t at the concert think P had a tutu on or a ballerina suit ‘cause that’s what Jay said in his rhymes. That was some slick sh*t he did to f*ck people’s perceptions up.
I was more mad about how this b*tch-*ss n*gg* gonna say something years after all the East Coast and West Coast sh*t go down [on “Money, Cash, Hoes.”]. Shut the f*ck up. Mind your business. That sh*t ain’t got nothing to do with you. ‘Cause when it did have something to do with you, you didn’t have anything to say. You was more quiet than a church mouse. We was the only ones still going to LA and doing shows in Cali, risking our life. It was just us and Biggie going hard. That’s why I feel like I do about the situation, because that n*gg* talking about some sh*t that he ain’t even know, talking about he’s trying to restore the feeling. You ain’t restoring no feeling. I’m glad you successful with your records and you’re getting a lot of airplay and video play, but you ain’t restoring no feeling. We the ‘hood. We the heartbeat of the street. We the ones holding this sh*t down. I just put [our beef] aside for Sam Scarfo, so [Jay and I could work together on] his album [when he was on Def Jam]. But we ain’t [addressed the past beef or our differences].”

Prodigy told SOHH about dirty cops that tried to get him to set 50 Cent up in return for his freedom. (SMH we know this kind of illegal abuse of authority takes place all of the time)
On January 9th Prodigy will begin serving a three-and-a-half year jail sentence for weapons charges.
“The cops did something illegal man, it needs to be known. In my case, they just searched my car without asking because they felt like they had the power to do that I guess. And they did it. They found a little gun in my car and they locked us up, locked me and (Alchemist) up.
And then, on top of that, while I’m in there they’re tellin’ me ‘We’ll rip up your arrest sheet, we’ll rip up the arrest report and let you and your friend walk right now and forget this ever happened if you help us set 50 Cent up.
These n*ggas is foul man, they real foul. They’ll make up sh*t and make their case stick. Then it’s your word against the cop’s word. Who’s the grand jury gonna believe? Some rapper that raps about guns and violent stuff that they don’t understand … or are they gonna believe the friendly neighborhood officer?”
And people wonder why some people don’t like or trust cops.
But props to Prodigy for not folding and setting up Fiddy.
