Mobb Deep's Havoc was a guest on Math Hoffa's My Expert Opinion podcast and was asked about the group's beef with Jay-Z in 2001.
“The crazy sh*t about the beef with Jay is Prodigy said something in a magazine…x, y, z and whatever, whatever. Jay-Z didn’t take it lightly. He came at us. I sent a sub but it wasn’t obvious," Havoc explained.
The Mobb Deep producer also spoke about Jay bringing out a photo of Prodigy dancing as a kid while performing his "Takeover" diss track at 2001's Summer Jam.
"He came at n*ggas necks and did the sh*t with the picture and all of that," said Havoc. "So, when the years passed and when finally Mobb Deep and Jay-Z is in the same room walking, it made me feel like I had beef with him and I didn’t have no beef with him. I’d rather have been his ally than to have beef with him. It’s just weird because it wasn’t about nothing but now, I’m in the same room with him and I feel like it’s something but it’s nothing. So that sh*t just made me feel stupid.”
Did you think Jay and Mobb Deep's issues were actual beef or just about competition?
