It was announced earlier today, 6/20/17 that one half of rap duo Mobb Deep, Prodigy has passed away at the young age of 42 years old. Hayden Johnson, or Prodigy as he was known to his fans, had been in a Las Vegas Hospital days ago due to complications from sickle cell anemia, a disease he had battled since birth, according to his publicist though, the official cause of death has yet to be determined.
Prodigy had performed with Mobb Deep as recently as Saturday during ‘The Art of Rap’s tour stop in Las Vegas which also features Ghostface Killah, Onyx, and Ice-T amongst others.
We would like to send our thoughts and prayers to Prodigy’s family, friends and fan base. May he rest in peace and may his legacy live on forever.
