Mobb Deep and the Wu-Tang Clan both came up in the same era.

For many years in the ’90s, the two groups were the star acts of Loud Records. So it’s not surprising to see Wu-Tang Clan be deeply affected by the death of Prodigy, one-half of Mobb Deep.

Montreality caught up with the Wu-Tang Clan — more specifically, RZA, Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, and U-God — recently backstage at a show. They talked about a number of interesting topics — including mumble rap and what New York City MCs they’re feeling — but the real interesting moments come when they started reminiscing about P.

RZA told a quick story about listening to some old Mobb Deep music:

“I remember driving in a van and Mobb Deep’s tape came out and Ol’ Dirty [Bastard] was bumping it…Ol’ Dirty was like ‘These young boys is fire!’”

Raekwon spoke a little bit about recording the masterpiece “Eye for a Eye (Your Beef Is Mines),” which was on the Mobb’s sophomore album The Infamous:

“I remember doing “Eye For an Eye” in Queensbridge and just being there wit’ him. Many moments, just gettin’ in the booth…That’s my family right there. I just want to send condolences out to his loved ones and immediate family. We’re going to hold his legacy down.”
