MTV News reached out to N.O.R.E. to get his take on Prodigy’s story detailed in his new autobiographical book about a violent incident that occurred sometime in 1996 or 1997. While some details were true, N.O.R.E. explains his side of the story and expresses some dissapointment with his long time friend. Who only a few days ago assured that anything in the book would be shown in a more positive light.

“There are certain things that you’re not supposed to talk about,” Nore said. “Now, I didn’t read the book and I don’t read where he’s going crazy. I read the little inserts where he [talked] about the jumping incident. Let me just clear the record up and say: None of the things that it says in the book would ever make me go at him. I’m not gonna see him and try to throw him in the full nelson.”

“I did get jumped. They jumped me with 40 people,” he recalled. “If you ever see 40 people jump on one man, that one man never gets touched, because most of those 40 people are hitting each other. You can’t hit the target. I got up. I never got robbed in my life,” Nore fired back. Prodigy also said that the “Super Thug” rapper and his crew came back with a TEC-9; Nore said it was a 9mm. In the aftermath of the gunfire, Mobb Deep affiliate Ty Nitty was left shot in the back.

“When I spoke to him the other day, he said, ‘Yo, I only spoke about good things about you in the book, and when you see the book, you’ll realize that,’ ” Nore recalled. “I said, ‘Yo, P, first off, nobody can really make me change on you, because I know you.’ I know him personally. We’re cool. We speak.”
