Sickle Cell warrior Prodigy of Mobb Deep dies at 42



Rap Star Prodigy of Mobb Deep is Dead


Prodigy, one-half of the popular rap group Mobb Deep, has died at the age of 42. He co-founded Mobb Deep with Havoc.

A statement by his publicist said:

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 familyโ€™s privacy at this time.

Aside from his interests in music, he also ventured into Cooking and last year he published a book Commissary Kitchen: My Infamous Prison Cookbook.

      @ X, hey hip hop head. The irony is that he survived Pac. A big life lesson there. Karma is real. RIP, Havoc.

      @ Chux, my bad. I have Havoc on my mind. May he live long. RIP Prodigy. The karma and death wish is in Tupac’s diss track when he wished Prodigy a seizure or a heart attack but Prodigy outlived him by decades.
