Prodigy Interview w/ Complex (Talks Nas, Biggie, CNN, Jay-Z)

In anticipation of his first project since returning to the world, The Ellsworth Bumpy Johnson EP, Complex caught up with P to discuss his autobiography and all of the Mobb Deep history contained in it’s pages. Topics include: him and Hav being free agents, their next album and deal, the 70 songs they’ve layed down since he came home, his history and recent reconciliation with Nas, putting Cam’ron onto pink (how dare you question his trendsetting?!), Capone of CNN supposedly testifying against Hav’s brother Killer Black, throwing N.O.R.E. a beatdown (seriously, I gotta read this book), bumping into Jay-Z at Justin’s and later agreeing that the beef was just about the music, his run-in with Saigon, how he thought Biggie and Wu-Tang were type corny when he first heard them, Hav not visting him until a year and a half into his bid, the Mr. Cee incident, how he feels about the new class of MCs in the game and his thoughts on Rick Ross and the comparisons to Big.

On Big:

When Havoc was talking about producing “Last Dayz” in the book and he was telling you to get on it, I was surprised that your reaction was that Biggie was corny.
A lot of people was feeling him, I just wasn’t feeling him. Another thing is that, I used to take things real personal. I was real serious when it came to rapping. I still do, but even more so when I was real young. I was on some other shit dun.

I wasn’t fucking with nobody else but Mobb Deep. I had tunnel-vision, straight up. I ain’t see nothing but Mobb Deep. I ain’t hear nothing but Mobb Deep. And niggas can’t fuck with Mobb Deep. That was my opinion, how I was thinking, and my life. Mobb Deep, fuck everybody else. So when I used to hear certain shit that Biggie used to say, he used to take some of my lines from my lyrics, and use them. That used to piss me off, because I was like, “Damn, this nigga just bit my shit.”

Like what lines?
Like “Niggas bleed just like us,” that’s my shit, and certain other things. But at that time it would piss me off, but now when I look back at it, it’s a compliment. He wasn’t trying to steal. He was basically kind of like a fan. And now I realize because I feel the same way about him. And I feel the same way about certain other rappers too. Just had a different mentality back then. It was little things like that.

Read the full interview here. The Ellsworth Bumpy Johnson EP drops tomorrow (via Complex) as does P’s autobiography, My Infamous Life.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^

    true but you gotta keep in mind that Wayne was one of the biggest artists on the planet when he got booked. Not saying Wayne is a G or nothing but anybody with that level of celebrity gets put in PC reagrdless of how they feel about it.

    I always fucks with Mobb its just that P always came off like the lil nigga in the squad that talks all crazy and forgets the fact that if he squared up against the majority of regular sized people in the world he would get roofed no problem.

  64. Camelot Says:

    @Black

    Tru on Wayne. I mean imagine if MJ (rip) had seen a cell when he was under trial. That nigga aint never seeing sunlight.

    P though? Yeah P pops mad shit off, but he presents himself as a thoroughbred, meanwhile niggas stilll debate about Wayne fake-flagging and this and that. P is good in the hood and behind walls.

    Its just his character i guess.

    Hmmmm. How old was P and hav in 95?

    does a wiki*

    So P is actually two years older than the late great. Maybe it was a young vs old thing. “Little nigga” getting put on before me shit? Juvenile didn’t really take off like The Infamous, so in 95 it was P and Hav’s joint versus Ready to Die.

    Yeah, I could see the tension and loose lips on Big biting P.

    ^^^^^^^^^

    To me rappers is as fake as they ever been its just niggas from the 90’s is lucky that they missed the Worldstar/Smoking Gun era. Look at the shit that P said;

    Capone snitched on Hav’s brother
    Nore got dipped on by Mobb affiliates
    Nas got choked out

    All these niggas had something crazy happen to them back then that would have had them all over the blogs and various outlets that niggas get their news from now.

    SN:That Capone snitching shit was real crazy to me.

  73. SPITGAME Says:

    lyrically there is no comparison.

    pbp

    I mean, I salute P for his contribution to Hip Hop, and I respect his loyal following… But I was never a real fan… He had a handful a verses he did his thing on IMO, but other than I ain’t fuck wit him scrap… BIG on the other hand…. Need I say more?

  74. P.W. Says:

    Calling Wutang corny and feeling yourself too much “Mobb Deep Zone” = HATING. Guess you got to get locked up for that insight.

  77. SPITGAME Says:

    ^^^^^^^^^^^

    Early… I listen to Mobb cuz of Hav & P’s chemistry and overall artistry as far as the beats/rhymes/mood they bring, and how it all meshes together.

    I never in my life have thought of either one of them niggas as being rewind worthy. We gotta remember that P prolly looks at BIG like a peer and not a legend tho.

    The thought is laughable but thats how P comes off to me. Like a bitter ass nigga who aint never wanna give a nigga they just do. In the interview he pretty much says that.
