This morning, hip hop fans were bewildered then shocked and saddened to see one of the greatest rap duos in what seems like a bond-breaking beef. Havoc from Mobb Deep aired out his longtime group partner Prodigy on the very public forum of twitter. Prodigy didn’t respond until hours later. And when he did, it was mostly to opt out of the debate and to dispute a fake Prodigy twitter that some folks have been retweeting (despite a very obvious spelling error). The origins of the beef are unclear for now, but I think we will be hearing more soon.
UPDATE: Havoc releases an official statement via publicist Roberta Magrini
“Just getting back into NY after my Easter weekend with family and friends in Jersey. I left my phone at a gas station yesterday evening while on my way to Jersey after a glorious Knick’s game. To all Mobb Deep fans: it’s business as usual! It’s Mobb Deep all day!!! My twitter account @THEREALHAVOC will be down until further notice. The only other real account is @PRODIGYMOBBDEEP. Ignore the rest. One!”
Still very odd considering all the tweets were done “via web” since his iPhone was lost. Hopefully we get more clarification.
Until then, read Havoc’s tweets, and Prodigy’s tweets….

Prodigy tweeted on Monday evening with a short response: IM A FATHER ,AN ADULT, IM NOT HERE TO BEEF IM HERE TO MAKE MUSIC.
Alchemist, who was being hounded all day tweeted this: THIS IS MY RESPONSE TO ALL QUESTIONS RELATED TO MOBB DEEP http://goo.gl/5QVtv
Mobb Deep were at SxSW in Austin, Texas just a few weeks ago and did this interview with R&R together.
And around six months ago, they participated in the Red Bull Academy interview series. Here, both Havoc and Prodigy talk to Sacha Jenkins, Egotripland.
Also last year, Prodigy published an autobiography that may have ruffled some feathers.
