Saigon says that his problem with Prodigy stems from his friendship with Tru Life.
Saigon and Prodigy came to blows back in 2007, a fight that extends to his kinship with Tru Life. During an interview with ThisIs50.com, Sai Diddy explained that Tru had a problem with Prodigy when he came in the game after the Mobb Deep rapper took money for a verse that he used elsewhere.
"That was about Prodigy not being real. The shit started with Tru Life. That shit wasn't even my beef. Tru had robbed them niggas, and me and Tru like brothers, before Rap. I came up with Tru. So when Tru got in the Rap game, he was on some hood rule shit apply still," he said. "Prodigy stole $15,000 from Tru Life. Not stole it, but he did a verse for him, and went and did the same verse and took the money, and then went and did the same verse on some other shit. Tru was like, 'Aight, give me another verse.' Son kept ducking. They did what they did with that. I ended up guilty by association. They tryna say, you went on TV and burned our CDs. I didn't burn CDs, I had a handful of CDs, I was like, all this shit is garbage to me. I wasn't singling out Mobb Deep."
Sai explains that he had seen Prodigy several times after that and they explained that they had no problems with one another. But as soon as they ran into each other and P was with a deep crew, the issues mounted. "I'm like, we was just hugging a few days ago! Why when you deep, and you catch me with one or two niggas, you got a problem again?" he said. "The reason I hit him was he gave me that look like, 'Yeah nigga, I got you now.'"
