Oh man, I'm still in shock and disbelief after receiving this news from my homie Charles. I was informed that Prodigy, one half of the Infamous Mobb Deep, has sadly passed away at the age of 42 (there are no additional details on the cause of death as of this posting). I have followed this man's career since 1995 (JUST played "Trife Life" this morning) and even with knowledge of him having sickle cell anemia, this is still a huge shock to me and to say he will be missed IS an understatement. My thoughts and prayers go out to him, his family and friends. Rest in peace/paradise Prodigy (facepalm).
