One half of the legendary NY duo Mob Deep lost his lifelong battle with sickle cell anemia today. The hip hop community took to social media upon hearing the news Prodigy had passed on in a vegas hospital, after a performance in the city.
I just got in the car. Phone is on shuffle. Song P and I JUST did started playing as soon as I got in. Trying to not break down.

Prodigy and Mobb Deep was a big influence to me. I used to freestyle to Keep It Thoro everyday in my dorm room. Rest in Power Prodigy

RIP to Prodigy. One hell of an MC. A man who was part of one of the best duos in hip-hop history. So many classics. Thank you, P!

Prodigy was one of my favorite interview subjects ever. Patient, polite, open-hearted and brilliant. He never stopped making amazing music.
