Saigon and Mobb Deep Brawl During Music Showcase in New York City

saigon.jpgPandemonium broke out during a music showcase at club SOB’s in New York City last night (September 19) after an exchange of words between Saigon and Prodigy of Mobb Deep turned physical. Although details are sketchy, a video posted on YouTube this morning clearly shows Saigon and his crew arguing onstage with Mobb Deep and their entourage. Seconds later, a scuffle ensues and Saigon is seen punching Prodigy twice in the face as both crews jump into the mix. Saigitty is later seen running out of the venue with his crew in tow. In an early morning blog posting on his MySpace page, Saigon explains that the altercation stemmed from disparaging comments Prodigy made about him during an interview earlier this year. When Prodigy was asked what he thought of up and coming MCs like Saigon he replied, “I don’t like him [Saigon]. I don’t like nobody really. I’m biased. I only like Mobb Deep shit. Everybody else could suck my dick.” In the blog post, Sai also notes that the reason he ran out of SOB’s after the confrontation was because he felt he lost the upper hand and him and his crew were clearly outnumbered. “I had already rocked Prodigy, it was time to dip up outta there,” Sai wrote. “Shout out to Big Chris for the human shield technique, he said, ‘You got em, lets go,’ and we went.”

  • Ryan

    Haaaaaaa!!!!!!!!! I like some old Mobb shit, but they’re definitley studio gangstas. They went to a high school “for performing arts”, ballerina tap dance bullshit. I like Saigon and I think it’s hilarious. Maybe Saigon and Tru Life will team up and beat the crap out of Mobb Deep while taking their clothes like in the Beef DVD.

  • RIOTLIFE

    Saigon, a man of his word! He said he was gonna son him! Punchin dude at his own show! Hilarious! Maybe this makes atlantic release his album quicker. they looove those stunts up at the majors!
    On the other hand, why all them ny cats beefin when they should join forces to make a comeback?

  • http://myspace.com/stopbeatingoff Rich Nice

    Yeah, not feeling this move. Wasn’t there for the go down, you know how words get thrown back and forth, but if that’s what he really stepped to him over, that’s booty. These niggas are legendary, and if they want to steer an interview away from new dudes that’s fine, he ain’t got to like you. Now you seem like a sucka for that punch and run shit. Plus for all P’s gun talk, the ngga’s like 5 ft nothing and 125 soakin wet. Leave that shit alone, make music.

  • Fire

    It’s horrible that they had to turn it into a fight and give rappers a bad image in some dumb asses’ minds. With that said, Mobb Deep really sucks.

  • WRONG AGAIN

    ZZZzzzzz…Neither of these dudes is ever gonna see Kanye/50 type success, so who cares?

  • East Is Over

    Papoose got dropped and is headed to Koch, Siagon you next so you better get along with your future label mates.

  • therealwayno

    I read the article where p ran his mouth and Saigon was interviewed just after and he had a real problem with it, specifically the “suck my d***” part of it. And he said back then when he see that ninja it was gonna be a problem. So he gets respect for keeping his word.

    Lesson learned: Men shouldn’t tell other men to do gay shit to them even if you mean it in a disrespectful way because it’s very gay and can get you bopped in the face.

    Mobb Sleep gettin knocked the fuck out. Damn, nigga even tried to make’em look good in the video. Ol’ boy was even like “It’s a new day when you see Mobb Deep! We bangin niggas son!” He probably thought that shit was good, but anytime a nigga havin a new day, that usually mean he been fuckin up. In Mobb deep case, they been finished. They talked all that shit, then sold out, and YEAH THEY SOLD OUT CAUSE IF SELLIN OUT AINT SELLIN OUT, THEN WHAT’S THE NEW SELLIN’ OUT? BUILDIN’ AND MAINTAINING YOUR OWN EMPIRE? RIGHT…
    I’ll never believe shit another East Coast rapper say about beng a boss, or a Capo, cause soon as a richer nigga come along wit a check, they a worker all over again. Niggas bow down too easy. I’m like Pac I bow down to no man. Fuck rap, you a man too aint you? Fuck Mobb Deep-and i never thought I would say that, cause I bought all they albums up to H.N.I.C. but I don’t fuck wit spineless cowards. True Life, Keith Murray, and now Saigon is part of the I SMASHED MOBB DEEP CLUB!!!!
    IN THE WORDS OF JAY, “WE STILL DON’T BELIEVE YOU YOU NEED MORE PEEEEOPLE!!!!

  • Macdatruest

    AND HAVOC CAN’T HELP P BECAUSE HE SOFTER THAN P IS!!! THEY DECIDED WHOEVER GET KNOCKED OUT FIRST, THE REMAINING HOMO WOULD CALL THE AMBULANCE HAHAHA. P IS FOR PUSSY. AND YEAH-I’LL FIGHT DUDE ONE ON ONE WHILE i’M TALKIN THE TALK YOU NEGROIDS

    Before I say anything, I’m not taking anybody’s side, because it’s all bad for Hip Hop. I’m really disappointed in Saigon. He’s already been there. They’re waiting for him to mess up, so they can send him back to prison. He knows better. Anyway, to all the people saying I wouldn’t have ran. You’re not superman, so don’t try and play one. If you’re out numbered, you know good and well you’re not going to stick around to get stomped out. That would be stupid. So Saigon did the right thing.

    As I said before, I’m disappointed in both parties involved. Hip Hop really doesn’t need this right now. Especially with it being under fire currently. This is just one more thing for them to say, see I knew they couldn’t control themselves. The sad part is, it’s all over some petty words. It didn’t even need to get this far. In terms of what each video shows, they show two different things. Bottom line, we as Hip Hop fans should not even be acknowledging this or flocking to it.

  • jajface

    I was there that night. Wasn’t really a sucker punch b/c Prodigy actually rolled up in Sai’s face to say some shit. He wasn’t turned around or nothing. What was really shady that night is the crazy Corleone kiss of death Havoc laid on Sai before it all went down. The clip only shows half of it, but after the whole Mobb came up on stage, Havoc comes up front and hugs Sai, says some shit in his ear and you see them smiling like they deaded the beef. Then you see that big goon grab at Sai’s shoulders from the back. Don’t blame Saigon one bit for how it went down. And really, the funniest part of the night was, when Mobb’s crew ran after Sai, the only to left on stage were Lil P and Lil H. Those two didn’t even think of going out there to mix it up, they let they muscle handle everything. Gotta love their ‘gangster’.
