Fat Joe Calls Mobb Deep Situation "A Sad Day In Hip Hop"
Fat Joe says he doesn't know about the details surrounding Mobb Deep's situation, but says it's a loss for Hip Hop culture.
Yesterday, Mobb Deep shook the Twittersphere after an alleged hacker posted bitter tweets towards Prodigy on Havoc's account. Though Havoc later claimed that his phone was stolen, Fat Joe weighed in on the implications that the situation had on Hip Hop and how it's a "super duper sad day in Hip Hop."
"I know nothing about it. But what i'm saying to you is it's like a 9/11 in Hip Hop, because when you refer to Mobb Deep, you refer to them as brothers, you refer to them as the purest form of Hip Hop," he told Peter Rosenberg. "Every time you try to do something that's so authentic in Hip Hop, you always refer to 'Shook Ones' and Mobb Deep. Overall, it's a super duper sad day in Hip Hop. This group has been together for 20 years. I don't know the details, I'm not taking sides. What I can say is that it's sad for Hip Hop, the whole Hip Hop culture."
He said that if the situation was real, it would be difficult for them to preserve their brand. "It's up to them, but I don't think so. I don't think so. It's a sad day in Hip Hop though. We lost a Gang Starr. We lost pillars of our community."
