Saigon and Prodigy of Mobb Deep were involved in a fight in 2007, and Sai explained to ThisIss50 exactly where the bad blood between the originated. According to Sai, the beef originated with Tru Life taking exception to Prodigy took money for a verse that had been previously used on another track.
"That was about Prodigy not being real. The sh*t started with Tru Life. That sh*t wasn't even my beef. Tru had robbed them n***as, and me and Tru like brothers, before rap. I came up with Tru. So when Tru got in the rap game, he was on some hood rule sh*t apply still," he said. "Prodigy stole $15,000 from Tru Life. Not stole it, but he did a verse for him, and went and did the same verse and took the money, and then went and did the same verse on some other sh*t. Tru was like, 'Aight, give me another verse.' Son kept ducking. They did what they did with that. I ended up guilty by association. They tryna say, you went on TV and burned our CDs. I didn't burn CDs, I had a handful of CDs, I was like, all this sh*t is garbage to me. I wasn't singling out Mobb Deep."
Then when the two saw each other and Prodigy was with a crew, things escalated.
"I'm like, we was just hugging a few days ago! Why when you deep, and you catch me with one or two n***as, you got a problem again?" he said. "The reason I hit him was he gave me that look like, 'Yeah n***a, I got you now.'"
