Prodigy is running his mouth again. This time, he’s taking shots at the late great Tupac Shakur. Well, sort of. Asked about his decision to sample 2Pac’s vocals on his song “New York Sh*t” despite being a victim of Pac’s wrath on wax, P told Nobodysmiling.com that artistic decisions take precedence over petty feuds. Well, not exactly in those words.
“It’s all about how the chorus sounds—‘Oh that sh*t sounds hot together-the Biggie and the ‘Pac sample sound good…’ I don’t give a f**k about Pac! I’m just saying that sh*t sound hot together; that’s an ill idea for a chorus. It don’t matter what Pac did or whatever…that’s not the case. The case is the shit sound like a good record.”
Too bad he couldn’t summon the courage to make such statements while ‘Pac was still alive.
