What’s beef? Certainly not the Rick Ross v 50 Cent feud. As the on wax rivalry comes to a close, some of Fif’s labelmates have begun to turn over a new leaf by working with his rap nemesis’. Take Prodigy for example, upon his release from a three year prison bid among the top priorities on his list was to reach out to a few MCs he respected who was getting it in and work with them. One of those artists was Rick Ross. 50 has made it clear in the past that when he has a beef with someone then the same goes for his supporters therefore making nice with Rozay a no-no. However, G-Unit artist Prodigy saw things a little differently.
“When I came home [from jail], 50 had come to see me, he had flew in from Cali to come and see me,” P explained in an interview on thisis50. “Before I did anything, I went straight from prison to the G-Unit office and then I came to the studio after that. When I stopped at the office, I had a talk with 50 and was telling him, ‘Yo, right now, we’re in a position where we gotta start doing songs with people. Mobb Deep. We gotta start doing songs with a lot of people. Different people.’ Basically he was like, ‘Yeah, you’re right.’ … All this s–t with n—-s ain’t doing songs with people, beefing with people, all that, we really trying to dead all that.”
Prodigy went to elaborate one of those artists he had in mind was Ross.
“Rick Ross is just one rapper out of many that we’ve been reaching out to,” Prodigy added. “Number one, aight, he a correction officer. Aight, so what? I know a lot of cops, I know a lot of corrections officers. I know some people that’s on the other side of the criminal s–t — and just because you got that job or whatever, whatever, that doesn’t necessarily mean that you a part of the people that’s trying to target us and f–k with us. Not all of the law enforcement gets down like that. It’s a select few of them that do…That doesn’t bother me that he was a corrections officer. Like, so what?”
Holding true to his word, Ross confirmed that just as the case with Nas, he recieved a phone call from the Mobb Deep rapper.
“I respect him most definitely as being a boss, making your own decisions” Ross told Sway. “When he was released he gave me a call a few days after that. We spoke on the phone maybe once or twice. It was a genuine conversation, us touching base making sure it is what it is. We most definitely put a record or two on the table. Just to be frank I was always a fan of the homey, H.N.I.C., I always respected when I saw that. The B.G. collaboration he did with the South. That was big for me. So I was always a fan of the homey and when he made this move in a gway so you had to respect it. So look for a Rozay and Prodigy record in the future.”
