This passed sunday at the Coachella Music Festival, Kanye West brought down the stage with a two hour performance dedicated to his mother Donda West. In what people are calling his best performance since his mother died, Kanye is alleged to have taken a shot at Amber Rose who was standing 75 feet away from him. During the song “Stronger” instead of saying “I’ll do anything for a blonde d*** and she’ll do anything if the times right” Kanye said “I did anything for that blonde d*** and she did anything when the times right.”
Mediatakeout.com reports that Wiz Khalifah “confronted” Kanye when he left the stage. According to one of their insiders “Wiz didn’t want to fight, he just wanted all this catty bullsh*t to end.” Kanye sought otherwise though; “Kanye said something to Wiz and next thing you know security and people’s entourages were everywhere pushing and shoving, it could have got real ugly.”
Never one to bite his tongue, Prodigy is getting some things off his chest after spending three years locked up on a gun conviction.
In a raw and straight forward interview with Complex, P reveals the shocking accusation that Capone of Capone-N-Noreaga snitched on Havoc‘s brother, Killer Black back in the day, why he squashed his beef with Nas and more.
Most of the interview centered around Prodigy’s new book ‘My Infamous Life: The Autobiography of Mobb Deep‘s Prodigy.’
You also speak on Capone taking the stand to testify against Havoc’s brother, Killer Black. That’s the kind of thing that would end most rappers’ careers. How did this not come out sooner?
People were upset, but that was just one of those things that just never came out. It just never happened. I can’t tell you why.
Are you and Capone still cool?
I mean, yeah, when we was younger, but after that sh*t with Hav’s brother I was just like, “Come on man.” In a hood like that, you have to see people everyday. You’re going to see n*ggas like, “What’s up? Oh, alright, what’s up son?” But in the back of your mind you’re going to be like, “Damn, this n*gga really did that sh*t.” That’s crazy. I didn’t even want to believe it. None of us wanted to believe it, but that’s what really happened though. We like Capone, and he just did that.
When Havoc was talking about producing “Last Dayz” in the book and he was telling you to get on it, I was surprised that your reaction was that Biggie was corny.
A lot of people was feeling him, I just wasn’t feeling him. Another thing is that, I used to take things real personal. I was real serious when it came to rapping. I still do, but even more so when I was real young. I was on some other sh*t dun.
I wasn’t f*cking with nobody else but Mobb Deep. I had tunnel-vision, straight up. I ain’t see nothing but Mobb Deep. I ain’t hear nothing but Mobb Deep. And niggas can’t f*ck with Mobb Deep. That was my opinion, how I was thinking, and my life. Mobb Deep, f*ck everybody else. So when I used to hear certain s*** that Biggie used to say, he used to take some of my lines from my lyrics, and use them. That used to p*** me off, because I was like, “Damn, this n*gga just bit my sh*t.”
Like what lines?
Like “N*ggas bleed just like us,” that’s my sh*t, and certain other things. But at that time it would p*** me off, but now when I look back at it, it’s a compliment. He wasn’t trying to steal. He was basically kind of like a fan. And now I realize because I feel the same way about him. And I feel the same way about certain other rappers too. Just had a different mentality back then. It was little things like that.

Hotel guests, be warned: Your bathrobes may be under surveillance.
“After being in the industry for many years, I understand the challenges hotels face in monitoring linen,” he said.
“Any given month, they can lose 5 to 20 percent of towels, sheets and robes. That gets expensive with the rising cost of cotton.”
Beyond policing freebie-hungry travelers, the chips help managers properly stock rooms and order supplies.
“Keeping track of everything is an arduous task, and there’s never been a clear system,” he said. “The chips introduce accountability, make things easier.”
