Prodigy Talks Allegations Of Snitching In His New Book

The Mobb Deep emcee explains why he isn't snitching in his new book, "My Infamous Life."

Prodigy has always been a controversial emcee, beefing with artists such as Jay-Z, Nas, and Keith Murray. It's unsurprising, then, that his book, My Infamous Life, has caused controversy as well, leading to allegations that Prodigy snitched on various individuals in the book.

"I don't think people understand the definition of dry snitch," replied Prodigy in an interview about the matter. "Dry snitch is a slang we started...A dry snitch is somebody that snitch for no reason. How do I fit into that category if there's nothing in the books that can get somebody charged or get somebody locked up? Nothing. There's no unsolved mystery. There's nothing in the book that's serious like that. Serious shit...that's left unsaid. There's a lot of shit that's left unsaid."

P speculated as to the nature of the allegations. "I believe that the people that are saying, promoting, rather, that I'm dry snitching in the book...I believe that the reason they're promoting that is to take the people's attention off of the way they're portrayed in the book. I feel that maybe they're hurt, or maybe [they feel] they're betrayed."

"The truth must be told. Minus the [snitching]. Not that kind of truth. I'm not sitting on the witness stand, saying 'he did it.'"

    No matta what yall might say, you can't front on the impact that they made on "Real Hip Hop/Rap Music" far from wack. Some of the best really.

      Shit, He's been locked up for 3 yrs, plus this is the "music business", so at the end of the day he would hopefully want to sell some records...Marketing

      They made a huge contribution to Hip Hop, but that doesn't let me overhype their new projects.

    • The B

      Look idiot...I say idiot because you say you're an avid Hiphop fan. Hiphop is a the culture as a whole, the lifestyle. Rap is the official music form of Hiphop which consists of hard bangin' ass beats and hard bangin' ass rhymes, that's called real rap music (BOOMBAP). Anything other than that is bullshit. If you say Mobb Deep hasn't made a huge contribution to Hiphop, you sir or madam are an IDIOT!!!

      First off, where did I deny that this lifestyle exists? There's just no such thing as real Hip Hop, sorry to say that. I actually buy music and underground and indie Hip Hop make up for 90% of my collection, so you're the one with issues who felt that he had to prove something on a Hip Hop site WHILE sitting behind a pc screen yourself. I know what I said and an avid Hip Hop fand would agree with me.

      wow, what an ignorant faggot. Talkin bout "a thing that only exists in people's imaginations." Bitch, maybe this shit is pretend to you, but this hip hop is a REAL LIFESTYLE lived by niggas that shed BLOOD,SWEAT,AND TEARS into this shit pussy. So dont ever run your little mouth sideways unless you behind a pc screen faggot, you'll surely get murked for runnin that shit in the streets. Stay tucked away in your safe suburbs little honky faggot
