Prodigy Speaks On Nas, Capone, Biggie & More

Aw shit, he’s back at it again. Linking up with ‘Plex Row for his upcoming The Ellsworth Bumpy Johnson EP, he sat down with them for a typical Prodigy interview. My favorite quotes so far:

One of the first things I did when I came home was I contacted Nas, because me and him needed to talk because we were going through some bullshit. Little petty bullshit. So I contacted son, and he hit me back, and we talking and basically we put all the problems and the petty shit in the past, and we’re trying to move forward.

… When I used to hear certain shit that Biggie used to say, he used to take some of my lines from my lyrics, and use them. That used to piss me off, because I was like, “Damn, this nigga just bit my shit.

… At first, I thought Rick Ross was a fluke to tell you the truth, because when I first heard him I was like “Who the fuck is this dude man? Come on. You can’t be serious. This dude is a fluke. One-hit wonder.” After a while he started proving himself.

Then I started seeing consistency with him, and more and more, I was like “Hold up. Ok, I’m starting to respect this dude now.” Now he’s proved me wrong. He’s not what I thought he was. That happens a lot. A lot of people won’t talk about it though.

How dare you question P’s trendsetting.
