Rest In Peace to the hip-hop legend.
Prodigy, one half of New York rap duo Mobb Deep has passed away at the young age of 42. The news has been confirmed in a statement made by the late emcee’s publicist, saying…
“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.

We would like to thank everyone for respecting the family’s privacy at this time.”
