Prodigy, an iconic rapper and one half of legendary hip hop duo Mobb Deep, has passed away at 42 years old.
According to TMZ, Prodigy passed away in Vegas likely due to difficulties with sickle cell anemia.
Prodigy was in Vegas this past weekend performing with Ghostface Killah, Onyx, KRS-One, Ice-T, and more.

There are so, so many more where that came from. A few honorable mentions: G.O.D. Pt. III, Up North Trip, Temperature’s Rising.
Rest in peace.
