Tru Life and Prodigy Squash Beef
In the same week that The Game and 50 Cent ended their decade-plus long beef comes photos of Prodigy and Tru Life together on a New York City rooftop, doing the same. "Welcome home @therealtrulife positive vibes last night with the homies," P wrote under the above photo, crediting Metta World Peace for the flick.
The beef between Mobb Deep and Tru Life dates back to 1999, when a verse that Prodigy had given Tru Life wound up on the Any Given Sunday soundtrack as well, blocking Tru from releasing his track with it. Tru took the double-dip as a slight, and it's been on ever since. With Tru Life home from prison this April though, having served eight years in prison for a fatal stabbing, an opportunity to make ammends presented itself.
"Part of becoming a man is being able to learn how to reconcile differences,and I thank God for allowing me and @prodigymobbdeep to grow as men and reach that point." Tru wrote in his own Instagram post, zooming in on the two rappers who were side-by-side for flick.
In a documentary short detailing the beef, Tru Life even recognizes that he was perhaps too prideful in taking Prodigy's moves personally and retaliating through violence and crime. Check out the photos up top and below, with unity and reconciliation within hip-hop looking mighty nice as it grows. Tru Life has his own documentary on the way, so perhaps a more detailed look into the beef squashing will be made available then.
