Prodigy’s book “My Infamous Life: The Autiobiography of Mobb Deep’s Prodigy” has caused a bit of an uproar amongst his fellow rap peers. In his memoir P labels fellow Capone-N-Noreaga rapper Capone as a snitch after he allegedly testified against Havoc’s brother, recalls an incident where Nas was yolked up in a studio by one of P’s former young artists from rap group Bars ’N’ Hooks, claims of publicly backing Jay-Z down following his infamous Summer Jam stunt and revealing an alleged set up of Murder Inc. owners Irv Gotti and Ja Rule by fellow labelmate Caddilac Tah. Just as the case where the aforementioned artists dismissed the reports (Jay-Z and Nas have yet to respond), Ja is the latest artist to publicly speak out against Ps accounts.
In the “H.N.I.C.” chapter of his book, P recalls a time with close friend E-Money Bags when the now deceasd rapper shared a message from his pager from Murder Inc. artist Caddilac Tah. According to Bags, who was feuding with the Inc., Tah had given Bags information on Irv and Ja’s whereabouts.
In his Navigator the next day, Bags passed me his pager and told me to look at the message. It was from Ja Rule’s labelmate Cadillac Tah: They’re over here right now, come get ’em. Cadillac was referring to Ja and Irv. “You see that, right?” Bags turned to me and said. “Their own man lined them up for me. We just robbed them n—-s for their chains.”
During this week’s taping of RapFix Live, Ja addressed the accusations, which he’d heard about for the first time.
“I have nothing to say about that” Ja told Sway after reading the excerpt from the book. “I wouldn’t know nothing about that. And I know Caddy and I believe, I trust in my heart that nothing like that [happened].”
In other sections of the book Prodigy makes it clear he wanted no dealings with the Murder Inc. camp, partially due to their affiliation with Queens druglord Kenneth “Supreme” McGriff who’s currently serving a life sentence for the role in the murder of E-Money Bags.
Fellow rapper Noreaga, also mentioned in Prodigy’s book questioned P’s motivation for bringing up incidents of the past.
“There are certain things that you’re not supposed to talk about,” Nore said.
