It seems that some revelations published by Mobb Deep rapper Prodigy in his new autobiography are hitting fellow Queensbridge rapper Capone where it hurts.
In "My Infamous Life," Prodigy claims Capone once took the stand to testify against the brother of Havoc, the other half of the Mobb Deep duo.
While Havoc has backed the book, saying it was how Prodigy wants to tell his story, Capone has released a sharp response on his new DVD. Most of it is unquotable here, but he does insist that people "don't rat on my side."
"We got a lot of things in store for you. This is just the beginning," he says.
Prodigy was released from prison March 7 after a three-year sentence for an illegal weapons charge. He penned the book there and has since come out saying he no longer wants to beef with other rappers.
Prodigy called Funkmaster Flex on Hot 97 Monday night to address the issue:
"It's sad it went down the way it went down," he said. "We didn't ask Capone to do that, we had nothing to do with his decision making."
"In no way, shape or form was I trying to be disrespectful or to target him or to ruin somebody's career," Prodigy went on. "That wasn't my intentions at all. My intentions was to tell the story as it went down and how it is. He was a friend of ours from the neighborhood, in Queensbridge, where that whole hood respected me and Capone was one of those people that showed me love when I came in so I had love for him."
