Mobb Deep rapper Havoc released a statement denying he was engaged in a Twitter brawl with his partner Prodigy, Billboard reports. According to Havoc, the insulting tweets directed to his longtime collaborator were not written by himself, but rather by someone who hijacked his account after finding his cell phone at a gas station in New Jersey.
“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,” Havoc told Billboard.
The Twitter feud between the real Prodigy and the fake Havoc led many fans and colleagues, including Questlove of the Roots and A-Trak, to assume the duo was about to break up. Much of the fake Havoc’s attack on Prodigy consisted of homophobic claims that the rapper engaged in homosexual activity while in jail on gun possession charges.
