Havoc has made his first public appearance since losing his best friend and fellow legend music partner Prodigy. The official cause of P’s death has still yet to be determined, but to the millions of Mobb Deep’s fans, their peers in hip-hop, and Prodigy’s friends and family, why P is gone is secondary. They’re suffering a collective heartbreak after losing such a vital contributor and ambassador for hip-hop culture.

Last night at Open House in New York, Havoc came out and was greeted with condolences by everyone. A few upcoming MCs spit rhymes in honor of Prodigy and the DJ spun a Mobb set. Afterwards, a somber Havoc spoke about trying to cope with the loss of a brother.

“Taking it one day at a time,” Hav’ said. “I’m representing my boy Prodigy. Gone too soon. We’re all in shock. The world misses him. I love him. I know he’s looking down on us right now. Just want us to keep going, represent his legacy.”
