June 21, 2017

The music world is in mourning with word that Mobb Deep rapper Prodigy has passed away at the age of 42. While a cause of death has yet to be officially determined, multiple sources tell TMZ that the rapper choked on an egg Tuesday morning while receiving treatment for sickle cell anemia in a Las Vegas hospital. Officials are still working to find out if the egg or Prodigy's anemia ultimately led to his death. Miraculously, Prodigy managed to muster the strength to perform in Sin City this past weekend. News of his passing spread quickly online Tuesday after Nas wrote on Instagram, “QB RIP King P. Prodigy 4 Ever.”
