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.
