Saigon Discusses The Source of His Issues With Prodigy

The issues between fellow rappers Saigon and Prodigy have been well documented over the years. The two came to blows back in 2007 - an altercation that stemmed from Saigon's friendship with Tru Life. In a recent interview, Saigon explained how he and Prodigy came to this misunderstanding which led to so much more. He says that Tru had a problem with Prodigy after he took money for a verse that was used at another recording.

"That was about Prodigy not being real. The s*** started with Tru Life. That s*** wasn't even my beef. Tru had robbed them n***as, and me and Tru like brothers, before Rap. I came up with Tru. So when Tru got in the Rap game, he was on some hood rule s*** apply still," he said.

Saigon then says a matter of $15,000 that went missing was ultimately the point in which things turned sour.

"Prodigy stole $15,000 from Tru Life. Not stole it, but he did a verse for him, and went and did the same verse and took the money, and then went and did the same verse on some other s***. Tru was like, 'Aight, give me another verse.' Son kept ducking. They did what they did with that. I ended up guilty by association. They tryna say, you went on TV and burned our CDs. I didn't burn CDs, I had a handful of CDs, I was like, all this s*** is garbage to me. I wasn't singling out Mobb Deep."

Saigon then goes on to explain that he and Prodigy never had any issues after that situation and even bumped into one another a few times without any type of confrontation going down. However, he says that as soon as Prodigy was accompanied by a large crew, the real problems began.

"I'm like, we was just hugging a few days ago! Why when you deep, and you catch me with one or two n***as, you got a problem again?" he said. "The reason I hit him was he gave me that look like, 'Yeah n***a, I got you now.'"
