Prodigy of Mobb Deep dead at 42
“Stretch and I first had Prodigy and Havoc on our WKCR radio show way back in 1991 when they were called Poetical Prophets and unsigned. Was no surprise to either of us when they blew up in ’95 as Mobb Deep on Loud Records! In 2015, we all performed together in Dubai at the Sole DXB event. P looked great on stage, and Mobb crushed the show. I know he’s had some battles in his life medically and personally, but that being the last time I saw him, leaves a good lasting impression in my mind cuz he seemed happy. I appreciate all the music he made. Word up . . .”
