News: Prodigy of Mobb Deep Passes Away at 42 (#RIPProdigy)


We are extremely sad to have to write this post letting you know 1/2 of legendary rap group Mobb Deep’s Prodigy has passes away at the age of 42. There is no word yet on the cause of his death but Nas took to social media today sending out his condolences followed by a confirmed tweet from his publicist.

Prodigy had just performed at Hot 97’s Summer Jam concert a few weeks ago followed by several other recent appearances. Sources say he had some type of ‘health crisis’ a few days ago but no one knows if his death was a result of his long-time battle with sickle-cell. Fellow artists took to social media to express their feelings on Prodigy’s sudden passing. Our condolences go out to his family and friends. Take a look at some classic Prodigy material below, he will never be forgotten.

Prodigy performed in Las Vegas for the Art of Rap tour with Havoc, Ghostface Killah, Raekwon and more two days ago!
