The hip-hop community was rocked by the sudden death of Prodigy of Mobb Deep on June 20. The rap legend died after a life-long battle with sickle cell. He was 42.
Services for Prodigy were held today, and LL Cool J, Remy Ma, Fat Joe, Ice T, Questlove and more were on hand to pay their respects. The funeral was also open to the public for a few hours, so that fans could say their final farewells to the rap giant.
“This week, hip-hop suffered a painful loss, with the sudden passing of our brother, Prodigy,” Lil’ Kim said during the emotional tribute. “His pen painted vivid pictures of street life. He made what was ugly sound beautiful.”
Havoc remembered his friend as well.
“For over 20 years, he and I went through it all and seen it all,” Havoc said. “I’m going to miss my dude. This loss is painful. But the lyrical legacy he left us will impact the culture forever. Rest in peace, Prodigy. My brother.”
