One of hip hop's most memorable beefs has to be Jay-Z vs. Prodigy. In the end most hip hop heads would say that Jay won that battle.
In a new interview with AllHipHop, Havoc talks about the beef and what it meant to the group and whether it had a negative impact on Prodigy as an artist.
"I saw the difference, but at the time I didn't wanna believe it," Havoc said referring to the change in Prodigy after the Jay-Z beef died down. "From all angles everybody was coming down on P, but I was holding him down like, 'nah son still good.' I just felt like I had to step my game up."
Havoc says in his opinion the beef never should have happened in the first place.
"That should have been a beef that never shouldn't have took place," Hav continued. "Always in my eyes I always felt like that. But for the greater good I said, 'if that's what you wanna do go ahead and do it.' I'm more into forming alliances than trying to be out here starting beef with people."
Hav goes on to talk about still being close to members of the Infamous Mobb. He said they don't want to get into the middle of his beef with Prodigy.
