I been doing this shit for years. Holding heat, selling, using, abusing all kinds of drugs. Robbing niggas, running up in niggas cribs, you know, the whole shit. So don’t ever in your life get me confused with some of them other niggas that you might see on tv, or hear on the radio & such. Know what I’m saying? I mean this is me, P, I’m speaking for my fucking self. When you see me at thew show, on stage, or in the street, I definitely got the gat on me you know what I’m saying? Know what I mean? & it ain’t like I’m trying to be a tough guy, or make people think I’m crazy by saying all this shit… but what is is is that, I know how niggas get down. I used to be in the clubs, The Muse, The Tunnel, whatever the fuck. Niggas get they little drink on having fun with they little crew, start cutting, shooting or whatever, things like that. A lot of these so called rap niggas aint never seen no parts of that shit you know what I’m saying? You dig where Im coming from? & I know a lot of y’all niggas, matter fact all y’all niggas listening to this shit is like “Yeah, we gon see them Mobb Deep niggas we gon see what they about. You know what I’m saying? Touch them niggas we gon see where they head is at. So yo, I’m gonna let you niggas know right now. You ain’t gotta waste your time, or your money on your hospital bills. & if you step to me on a personal level I don’t back down easy. There’s a good chance your ass either gonna get shot, stabbed, or knuckled down..one out of the three. So don’t gamble with your life duke word up. 8 believe me, I know very well I could get shot, stabbed or fucked up too, whatever. I ain’t “Supernigga, I’m a little skinny mutha fucka. It’s all about who gets who first, though you know what I’m saying? So therefore, say no more. To all my niggas, get the money, frontin niggas get deceased. And oh yeah, to all them rap ass niggas with your half assed rhymes talking about how much you get high, how much weed you smoke, & that crazy space shit that don’t even make no sense, don’t ever speak to me when you see me, know what I’m saying? Word. I’ma have to get on some ol’ high school shit, start punching niggas in they faces for living.

I got you stuck off the realness… First time I heard/saw Mobb Deep was the Shook Ones video and I instantly connected bcuz not only did they sound authentic to OUR streets that I was on but they looked like US too. Whether it was shooting videos in the projects wit they niggas holding gallons of Henny or chilling on Housing Projects benches or riding in Acura Legend’s wearing bandana’s, me being a young NYC kid from the Projects at the time they spoke our language & was the REALNESS!! Prodigy’s unorthodox flow & aggressive (without raising his voice) cadence was one of the illest in the game. When he said “rock you in ya face, stab ya brain wit ya nose bone” you felt it!! I got so many memories from riding to school for months listening to The Infamous album to being in The Tunnel nightclub when @funkflex played Quiet Storm & Queens would go crazy!! Damn!! RIP to our fallen soldier, the legend Prodigy aka P aka H.N.I.C. Sleep in Paradise! 🙏🏾
