One half of the group Mobb Deep has just been taken away as Prodigy recently passed away. According to XXL:
the publicist for the group confirmed he was found unconscious and passed away Tuesday morning.
In a statement, the group’s 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 family’s privacy at this time.”
