RIP Prodigy from Mobb Deep


Rapper Prodigy of Mobb Deep dead at 42...

Reps for Prodigy confirm to XXL 
“It is with extreme sadness and disbelief that we confirm the death of our dear friend Albert Johnson, better known to millions of fans as Prodigy of legendary NY rap duo Mobb Deep. Prodigy was hospitalized a few days ago in Vegas after a Mobb Deep performance for complications caused by a sickle cell anemia crisis. As most of his fans know, Prodigy battled the disease since birth. The exact causes of death have yet to be determined. We would like to thank everyone for respecting the family’s privacy at this time.”

Rest in Power, Brother.

I'm usually not a Hotep conspiracy theorist but I'm starting to think there's something to all these rappers ending up dead or in jail after interviews with DJ Vlad.

Here's one of Prodigy's last interview from earlier this year. I was listening like "this all makes sense."

"Prodigy Speaks On The Dark Spiritual Nature Of The Illuminati"

I'm so sad to hear this. Eternal peace be unto your spirit.
For all the conspiracy theories...those with sickle cell know, he lived a long and prosperous life. Many don't make it to 40.

Just last week I watched a YouTube upload of him attempting to desensitize the masses, the young black youths, to jail house cooking.

I thought to myself, I hate him and nigg(as) like him and I wished he were dead.

RIP Prodigy.
Among children and adults with sickle cell anemia (homozygous for sickle hemoglobin), the median age at death was 42 years for males and 48 years for females. Among those with sickle cell-hemoglobin C disease, the median age at death was 60 years for males and 68 years for females.

Shaking my head at all the black folks doing the ice water challenge last year for ALS a white folks decease but not this one.

Well, he has passed. I want to say condolences to his family. IM Not Going To front. I was a bit of a hater when he was alive. I mean he did some corny shit, and the dooglin another dude in jail thing I can't cosign. But he was always spitting, even if it wasn't fire. He was a rapper his whole life and most don't get that.. rest in peace and I might play one of your records.

Not gone front neither and not speaking ill of the deceased but some of things that were circulating about him in life, made me think twice about all these hyper masculine hip hop bravado misogynistic dudes that are really homosexual.
