Prodigy, 1/2 of the legendary Mobb Deep has passed away at the age of 42. Although we know that he’s been battling sickle cell anemia, we have yet to learn the cause of death, but we do know that Prodigy was more than just another voice in Hip Hop, he was muscle, he was a teacher, inspiration and motivation to many listeners in the hip-hop community, especially those in the NY community. Today we have lost a legend in Hip-Hop and for the culture; it’s only right to pay respects to a MC who helped create classics such as “Quiet Storm”, “Shook Ones”, “Get Away” and “Survival of the Fittest”.
We would personally like to send out prayers to friends and family members of Prodigy including Havoc, his best friend and business partner who have had his back since day one. Prodigy will truly be missed!
