Tensions are still high for producer Havoc as he has once again publicly taunted estranged Mobb Deep group member Prodigy over his condolences to the memory of late music executive Chris Lighty.
Hav took to Twitter and put Prodigy in the hot seat for reportedly firing Lighty during their tenure at Violator Management.
“RIP to my ol music mentor Chris Lighty. U will be deeply missed.,” he tweeted August 30th.
“RT: @PRODIGYMOBBDEEP: terrible news.. tremendous loss R.I.P. big homie — Yeah, it was a loss when you fired him.”
According to reports, Lighty encouraged Mobb Deep to make “Quiet Storm” one of their 1999 singles.
Havoc was hesitant for the group to release “Quiet Storm” as a single. After all, it’s essentially a solo Prodigy song. However, with Lighty’s persistence and Havoc’s belief in Lighty’s “priceless ear for hits,” the song became a hit and one of the duo’s signature classic. The track even spawned a remix, which featured Lil Kim and did include a verse from Havoc.
Resentment is like drinking poison and waiting for the other person to die. Free jewelry.
