The hip-hop community was dealt a big blow today, as Prodigy of the legendary group Mobb Deep passed away. According to the Breakfast Club, he was found unconscious earlier today. “He apparently had some sort of health crisis two days ago, and hip-hop as a whole has known P struggled with sickle cell disease for most of his life,” according to XXL. “For his entire career, Prodigy was a master wordsmith, handling the lyrical heft for Mobb Deep while Havoc paved the way as one of New York’s premier producers.”
Thoughts and prayers are with P’s family and the rest of the Mobb Deep crew.
