Prodigy on Lil Kim vs Nicki Minaj: “Kim should’ve been happy for her and just shut up”

Prodigy spoke on the Lil Kim vs Nicki Minaj situation at a book signing for his biography, My Infamous Life.

       Talking Points:

  • “Kim is in the wrong, she should’ve never went at Nicki Minaj”
  • “Nicki Minaj is an amazing artist, shes new, shes talented, shes original, shes unique”
  • “Kim should’ve been happy for her and just shut up”
  • “In this day and time it’s not about who do it 1st, it’s about who do it best now.”
  • No more uniqueness e.g everybody using the same slang
  • “Nicki Minaj would’ve probably put her on tour and done songs with her, but shes burnt that bridge now & I’ve done that before

Mike Delorean: “Prodigy got Hepatitis C”

For those that don’t know, Mike Delorean has some harsh words to say to Prodigy after talking about his deceased mother in the controversial biography – My Infamous Life.

Background Info:

Mike Delorean was signed to Prodigy’s Infamous Records back in the late 90’s to early 00’s.

Alleged to be a NY Blood. Was signed to Suge Knight’s Death Row East with Lakey The Kid.

  • Promises to catch Prodigy either at his show or when he goes to his P.O.
  • “E Moneybags had you under pressure” – (does this relate to the racketeering aimed at rappers?)
  • Says Prodigy wasn’t even there when Nas & Mike Delorean got into a scuffle

Shoutout to Doggie Diamondz

In Defense of Albert Johnson

I think it’s safe to say Mobb Deep’s initial post-penitentiary efforts have been greeted with a lukewarm critical reception. It came as no surprise to witness ‘Dog Shit’ written off as underwhelming, as Nas is habitually maligned across the blogosphere. What is puzzling, however, is the cold shoulder Prodigy has received thus far considering just a few weeks ago “Free P” was certainly a ubiquitous movement. (more…)

INITIAL REACTIONS: “Dog Shit”

AVERAGE RATING:

DOWNLOAD: Mobb Deep & Nas – “Dog Shit”

As my esteemed colleague Deen reminded us last week, it’s been nearly seven years since the last official collaboration between Nas, Mobb Deep, and The Alchemist. Did the Queensbridge (and Beverly Hills) quartet bring the Uzi in the army jacket lining, or buckle under pressure of unrealistic expectations? The G.B.M. alumni provide their uniquely bias opinions, as well as measure the song’s worth using a five unit rating system. Let the games begin.

Anticipation…

Pawse.

Nope. This isn’t about the M.O.P. or Carly Simon (or Les McCann?) songs (all awesome, but Carly Simon wins that battle). It’s more about the twin concepts of expectation and excitement, both of which are apt at the moment, given the impending launch of a new home for the crew, GeorgeBushMoney and Dog Shit, a new track from Mobb Deep featuring Nas and co-produced by The Alchemist and Havoc.
