Prodigy Takes Shot at Hell Rell, Rick Ross In Letter

Prodigy names his favorite emcees, but takes jabs at Hell Rell and Rick Ross in a new letter from prison.

Prodigy has been doing a lot of writing since he went to prison, but don’t look for the material to wind up on his next album. In another letter written by one half of Mobb Deep, Prodigy tackles the issue of the greatest rapper of all time and names his 40 favorite rappers.

He begins the three page opus by stating that he doesn’t believe there is a such thing as a “best rapper.”

“There are too many great rappers,”Prodigy writes. “There is no greatest rapper ever.”

Prodigy then goes on to take a not so subliminal shot at Hell Rell and Rick Ross.

“You got people who actually think Hell Rell is a good rapper. There’s people who get the chills when they hear Rick Ross, like he’s something special.”

The conclusion of the letter finds Prodigy naming his 40 favorites—in no particular order of course. LL Cool J, Kool G Rap, and Rakim all make the list. In addition, Prodigy also places Three 6 Mafia, TI, and Kanye West on his list as well.
