JAY-Z and Prodigy’s bitter feud prevented the world from listening to the celebrated MCs on M.O.P.’s “Ante Up (Remix).” In a brand new interview with Doggie Diamonds TV, M.O.P. member Billy Danze confirmed Hov and Prodigy had been each supposed to seem on the music.
According to Danze, Remy Ma made her method onto the remix as a result of Jay and Prodigy’s absence. The late Mobb Deep member recorded a verse dissing Hov, which led to M.O.P. eradicating it and telling Jay to not trouble recording one in all his personal.
“We didn’t have [Remy] in thoughts,” Danze defined. “Cause actually, Jay was alleged to get on the music. Prodigy had did a document for the music. Now, I didn’t wanna use Prodigy’s verse as a result of he was truly speaking about Jay. Remember, that they had the little beef. So, I hit Jay and was like, ‘Yo, nevermind. Don’t fear in regards to the verse, we closing the music out.’”
Danze mentioned he didn’t wanna let the meat play out on his monitor since he was cool with each males. Jay appeared on M.O.P.’s 1998 album First Family four Life and later collaborated with the duo on his “U Don’t Know (Remix).” M.O.P. even signed with Roc-A-Fella Records at one level, although they by no means launched any albums on the label.
“I couldn’t enable that,” Danze famous. “Even if it was the opposite method round, even when Jay would’ve bought on the document dissing Prodigy, I might’ve took Jay off the document. You don’t deliver your little beef and your little conflict into my home. I don’t do this.”
As turned out, the “Ante Up (Remix)” ended up that includes Busta Rhymes, Remy Ma and Teflon.
