Prodigy Speaks on Prison Sentence, Says Hip-Hop Cops Wanted Him to Set Up 50 Cent

Prodigy of Mobb Deep recently called into DJ Whoo Kid’s G-Unit Radio show to speak on his recent conviction on weapons charges and the three and a half year prison sentence he is now facing. The Mobb Deep front man was pulled over in Manhattan last October after making an illegal turn, and was subsequently arrested along with producer The Alchemist when cops found a pistol stashed in his vehicle. “They found a little hammer in my car, so I got a do a little three and a half [years], but I’ll be right back,” P explained sounding reasonably upbeat. He then went on to explain why, after initially denying ownership of the .22 caliber pistol, he later changed his mind and accepted a plea deal. “There was a good chance that I could’ve won, but the cops was lying so much that I didn’t want to fight that. Because once the cops is lying, and the D.A. is believing it, and you got the judge on they side, it’s like…I saw the circumstances and I sat back and I really thought about it and I saw that there was no way I could win.”

P went on to urge listeners to invest in cameras and other surveillance equipment for their vehicles in order to protect themselves from what he sees as a recent increase in racial profiling. He even went so far as to claim that New York cops offered him a chance to setup 50 Cent in exchange for exoneration on his own charges. “They were actually trying to get me to plant evidence in his car,” he explained. “They wanted me to put drugs or guns in his car.”

Despite his impending trip to prison, P promised his fans that he has big plans for the next couple of months, and vowed to stay relevant on the streets through new music during his incarceration. “All [the prosecutors are] doing is making me stronger, they don’t even know what they doing,” he said. “They making me Malcolm X right now.” He even took a minute to take a lighthearted shot at 50 Cent’s recent retail adversary Kanye West. When Whoo Kid wondered if the hip-hop cops were even watching and profiling artists such as Kanye, P commented, “I don’t know if they following that tight clothes ass nigga, but they following me. His clothes is so tight, you can see if he got a gun or not.” Prodigy is scheduled to begin his sentence on January 9.

Hell Rell’s ablums is wack, nothin but old songs on it and your boy Max B only sold a whoppin 4,000-5,000 units in it’s first week. Terrible. Jim Jones is making the best moves outta the whole set, and he ain’t that tight either. Not hatin, just statin the facts

  • Shanna

    I think he should be put in jail for a long time that’s what I think. Not no 3 years in jail,And why would he mention Kanye name he has noting to do wit it.

  • http://www.youtube.com/paragon249 Colron

    That self-surveillance thing is the truth. Probably a market oppurtunity too.

  • Shanna

    I think that he should be in jail more than 3 yrs. Why did he have to mention Kanye West name he had noting to do wit it.

    • May

      @Shanna

      Do you live in New York? Because that is the amount of time one gets if he/she is caught with an illegal gun in New York State. NYS doesn’t play that sh*t.

      Just to let you know.

  • dopemg

    why did the mayor of the d feel the need to bring dipset into this does he not know jim and juelz are working with 50? and the hip hop cops aint no joke they really want half of the rappers dead or in jail why do you think that 2pac’s bodygurd and fbi informant is just now comeing out after over 5 years after the murders accured they wanted them dead they had more then enough time to clear the evidence and now they decied to bring out the undercover cop like they are goin to reviel the killer now after soo long and weezy said it him self that when he got arrested they aint ask him bout no weed or pills they was askin him bout 50 and other rappers you see how they got ti’s bodygurd to work with them they wernt going to do anything bout the situation till they found out that the bodygurd was buying them for ti and he said he bought them for several others and only the famous rapper got arrested?? Smartin Up Guys the Hip-Hop cops are listening

  • joey doe

    I knew about this a little while ago because I happen to know somebody who knows P. Bandana P. or soon to be Malcom X P. this really sucks for P because he had the HNIC2 in the works and maybe it will be released while hes away which i doubt because thats a big project and I’d think he wants to be here to promote and do shows for it.Hold ya head Tragedy Khadafi also hold ya head while you sit in there waiting to see what the system throws upon you. A lot of non sense in the music game right now woth stars getting locked for Avoidable shit! peace.1. joey doesky.fags.

  • Boy Vito!

  • DirtDogggy

    I beleive it, the cops got a hard on for 50 and every other raper makin cake, if they got someone close to him in a situation, why would’nt they try to get 50 ? 50 got to much money for that shit now though, he’s got that “pay off the judge or senator money”

    But watch your back mutherfuckers, the jake are out to protect and serve your ass a sentance.

    Kanye has already solidified his place in hiphop history with 3 almost classic albums.
    The MOBB on the other hand, lost ALL, ALL! credibility when they signed with GUNIT.
    no legacy left for you guys, im sorry.

  • BK Cyph

    I dont recall Malcolm X gettin snuffed and when was the last time P did something uplifting for the people?!?

    Though I do believe they tried to get him to set-up 50. Did Lil Wayne alledge a similiar thing when he got bagged with the tooly?!?

  • mike

    I don’t believe that shit at all. Fuck Prodigy, and fuck gay-unit. Stop trying to give Curtis free publicity for that wack ass gay-unit album that he ready to drop. Why would the police want to set curtis up, when he is the police?

    FUCK! The Infamous Mobb Deep the original Half way Crooks. who did lose all credibility when they signed to Snitch-Unit and had it tatted on there hand.

    But still big up to prodigy come back and continue being a legend. Kanye will always make more money the 50 hes still in touch with the streets.

    Maybe while in the penn he will realise what a joke he has been and come back with more bangin shit.

    He dissed Kanye b/c YE is a str8 up homo, come on anyone that says all this shit about hip hops dead is b/c of people like kanye, he doesnt appeal to REAL hip hop audiences, maybe he appeals to you brits an aussies cuz you cant relate to what goes on over here, knaye aint even a good lyrisist! you read his Lyc’s bro? make no sense, as far as a producer he got talent but 50 built him up to end up sellin more records…..50 did it to him self and any fuckin way this aint even about that…shit wasted my time

  • cvaria

    that shit is bugged, i just heard the “return of the mac” album. that has to be one the hottest albums i’ve heard in years. it’s a damn shame. HNIC 2 would have been fire. hope it still makes it out. that “mac 10 handle” video was sick as hell too.

  • Anthony

    Its crazy how rappers are singled out from the rest of the music industry with a whole division dedicated just to them aka hip hop cops. When I read on Global Grind that the police were trying to get prodigy to set up 50 I wasn’t surprised. They are preying on every rappers downfall.
