1. Mobb Deep Twittergate: UPDATE.

    In what was a shittier than usual Monday, the biggest news story of the day in hip-hop involved Mobb Deep seemingly breaking up via Twitter when Havoc (or someone pretending to be him) tweeted several incendiary messages re: longtime MB partner, Prodigy . Needless to say, every hip-hop fan had something to say about this sad public outburst, with most wondering if Havoc’s account had been hacked. While a fake P got into the mix , the real Prodigy / @PRODIGYMOBBDEEP finally responded (see above) in what was seen as a “mature” move to the airing out from Hav’s account.

    The latest now is a statement from Havoc that hit the Interwebz just an hour or so ago and that was reprinted by Billboard :

    “Just getting back into NY after my Easter weekend with family and friends in Jersey. I left my phone at a gas station yesterday evening while on my way to Jersey after a glorious Knick’s game. 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. One!”

    Still, as several astute blogs have pointed out (we see you Nah Right ) there is one important detail about Hav’s story that doesn’t line up: Those tweets from Sunday night were sent via Web and not his phone . Let’s see what happens next.

    UPDATE TO UPDATE: Last night Prodigy tweeted a photo to Havoc related to the lost phone explanation. See it after the jump…

    @PRODIGYMOBBDEEP: “Hav..got u an early gift”
