Prodigy of Mobb Deep revealed that he and T.I. bonded with each other during the time both were incarcerated. Tip was in jail in Arkansas while Prodigy was behind bars at Rikers in New York, but the two rappers found common ground and shared music while awaiting their freedom. Prodigy discussed how the song "What's Happening" came about.
"When we were locked up, we were in contact with each other, so when we both came home, we had reached out and was like, 'Let's get this work done,'" P explained. "I think I told him, 'Give me your e-mail, I'm going to send you some joints' and he was like, 'Yo, check this out, I make beats.' He said, 'You might want to listen to some of my joints, you might like something,'" P added. "I was like, 'Hell yeah, send that.' So, the first joint he sent over was just incredible. He had put a chorus on it already and the beat was crazy. It don't even sound like a South beat or New York beat. You can't pinpoint where this beat came from. It was just good music, so I was like, 'Yeah, this is dope right here.'"
