Prodigy, one half of
the previously amazing Mobb Deep, had a fairly acrimonious relationship with the late Tupac Shakur. (Threats of beatings from both sides and Tupac making cracks about Prodigy’s sickle cell anemia seems to qualify.) You might think, then, that Prodigy would want nothing to do with Pac whatsoever.
Instead, a track from Prodigy’s upcoming solo album, Return of the Mac, samples Pac’s voice on the chorus. He had this to say about the sample: “Any problems that me and Pac had, that wouldn”’t stop me from using his voice on a sample. …I don”’t give a f**k about Pac.”
Maybe this is Prod’s final shot…wanna make a dead rival roll over in his grave? Use his voice to sell a few records. Good times.
