Prodigy Ready To Put Past Beefs Behind Him, Speaks On Rick Ross

Prodigy concentrated on securing songs with Mobb Deep and other artists, says he's past beefing with artists.

In a video interview with ThisIs50, Prodigy of Mobb Deep revealed that following his recent release from prison he’s willing to put past beefs behind him for the sake of music.

“I went straight from prison straight to the G-Unit office and then I came to the studio after that,” Prodigy explained. “So when I stopped at the office I had told 50, ‘Yo, right now we in a position where we gotta start doing songs with people.’ As far as Mobb Deep. We gotta start doing songs with a lot of people…Cause that’s what it is man. It’s like when nigga’s ain’t doing songs with people, beefing with people and all that. We really trying to dead all that.”

Among the many artists Prodigy has reached out to in regards to a possible collaboration is Miami rapper Rick Ross. When asked if Ross’ corrections officer background would be an issue Prodigy explained that he isn’t at all bothered by the rappers past.

“Rick Ross is just one rapper out of many that we’ve been reaching out to,” said Prodigy. “Number one, aight he a correction officer. Aight, so what? I know a lot of cops. I know a lot of corrections officers. I know some people that’s on the other side of the criminal shit and just because you got that job or whatever that doesn’t necessarily mean that you a part of the people that’s tryna target us and fuck with us…That doesn’t bother me that he was a corrections officer.”

Both Ross and Prodigy are rumored to be working together on a project titled “Black Cocaine.” Prodigy referred to the project in a Tweet to Ross earlier this month.

    Not afraid to say that I enjoy Rick Ross' music. He has improved VASTLY over the last 2 albums. Teflon Don was good enough for me to keep the majority of the songs on my iPod, which is saying a lot for a mainstream Southern rapper. This project should be good.

  • B@nksy

    I think P does care that Ross was a C.O he just cares about his career more, and he thinks collaborating with ross will help his career in the MAINSTREAM. the sad part is hes probably right. Im not mad at him though, get money.

  • THIS IS ME

    YE HE WAS A CO. BUT HE ALSO HAD A EASY LIFE GRADUATED HIGH SCHOOL AND THEN WENT TO COLLEGE TO STUDY CRIMINAL JUSTICE AND THEN WORKED AS A CO. LIED ABOUT THE WHOLE THINGS. AND TALKS ABOUT SHIT HE ONLY STUDIED ABOUT THEN TOOK THE IDENTITY OF ANOTHER MAN AND EVEN HIS BEARD. IF YOU TAKE A CLOSER LOO YOU WILL SEE A FAKE.

  • shawna

    daamn y soo much hate on ross for?? soo what he was a c.o. for 18 months to feed his family. would u rather work at mcdonalds?? he was a c.o. when he was 18 19 years old wooow big whoop. this what i wanna know how is ross able to afford a record label with all them artists if he only goes gold??

    • B@nksy

      If he would of made that argument and kept it real "yeah I was a C.O at a certain point in time to support my family ect" people would have more respect for him. But he lied about it. Then changed his story. on a radio show said the reason he was a C.O was cus he was apart of some elaborate crime operation and he cant give the details cus that would be snitching. Being a C.O and claiming to be one of Florida's biggest drug dealers just doesn't add up.

  • LordLamickTheEmperor

    Reason why i got no respect for Ross isn't because of the C.O job alone. It's that and the content of the majority of his songs, especially before the whole C.O was revealed. Dude would have kept going on about pushing this, shooting him, running from them. Basically, he's just a fictional story teller, and not a very good one since his subject matter is so very limited and just hurts the community. But him being a C.O before that just makes it all like a big fuck you to the streets.

  • Wolfman

    P is LUNCHIN! You wanna make a cereal box for the month, then go pop on songs with Justin Beiber and whoever else wins the next American Idol. I can't feel that shit. Mobb Deep was BIG for years because they brought fresh originality to rap. Go back to the lab and cook up that fresh Dope. Hopin' on the Rozay train or whoever else, aint gonna give people a reason to think you're bringing some fresh again. Just riding the same old shit thats played out. Fuck mainstream rap.

  • nuc

    also , he said EXACTLY what ive been thinking about rick ross CO past. not a big fan of ross, but the fact he was once a CO has nothing to do with anything! having a well paying job and surrounding yourself in hiphop culture is not a bad thing!

    • AT

    • highend13

      I completely agree with you, if somebody said that Common, Mos Def or some guy like that had been CO nobody would mind, but I can't stand Ross because he always talks about growing up like a drug dealer and running the streets; plus his whole name and persona is stolen... The guy is just a lame poser; I cannot argue with his new music though, he has some hot songs...

    • nuc

      so the point of the post was (clearly) that having a (well) paying job is better than not having one.

    • DUMBASS

      HAVING ANY JOB IN THE STATES IS A GOOD JOB... " 20 GS AINT A WELL PAYING JOB?" WHO THE FUCK ARE YOU? IT MAY NOT BE A 1ST CLASS LIFESTYLE, BUT ITS 'WELL' PAYING. CANT EVEN ARGUE THAT. HAVING A JOB IS A GOD THING,,, WHTHER OR NOT ITS WELL PAYING,, I THINK THAT WAS THE POIINT BEING MADE. NOW GO GET A JOB.

    • nuc

      ppl will nitpick anything on this site wont they? 20 gs is better than doing eff all with your life, other than hanging out on a st corner bragging about dong that

    • Anonymous

      20 grand a year aint a well paying job bro

  • nuc

    im loving p's attitude! i left him on the shelf during the unit run, and its mainly becuase of just that ' no collabos outside the camp ' boring. glad he is back doing the unity thing.

  • ggunittt

  • Its the Mobb!

    Mobb Sleeep! Time to apply for a job at the airport P. Just throw it in the carry on baaaaaag!

  • bballslim42

    Man Prodigy didn't Tell 50 anything. He may have asked politely, or suggested some shit, but he's not telling 50 anything. 50 straight smack the shit out of Prodigy's little ass for getting out of line.

    • FUCK A NIGGUH.NO HOMO DOE

      AHAHAH LOL FUNNY BUT TRUE SHIT THESE NIKKAZ REALLY THINK U CAN SMACK SOMEBODY LIKE THAT JUST CUZ U GOT MONEY,ONLY NIKKA THAT GETTING SMACKED IN THIS BITCH AND WILL NEVER DO SHIT IS LIL TWIST,AND YOUNG BERG

    • Sensaye252

      Damn, you're really buyin' in to these rap fantasies aren't you? This isn't WWF bruh. These niggas ain't the superthugs that you've obviously been convinced that they are.

  • Rick

    Why is it that everyone is trying to get Ross on their project? Because they see the quality in his music...PERIOD!! Alot of you dumb fuck need to let go of that C.O. shit. Ross has been messing around with some of the Greatest from the past 15 years! and theyre the ones reachiong out to HIM, not him reaching out to THEM!

  • wickwickwack

    yeah right ,go work with the hottest guy in the industry since fif cant do much for u anymore ignore the disses u threw before u went in this sounds too phony

  • Rick Ross the Bawse
