  • RIP Prodigy from Mobb Deep

    Today I read the sad news that Prodigy from Mobb Deep was found dead at the age of 42. Anybody that knows me knows that I'm a Mobb Deep fan so today is a sad day for hip-hop. I was hooked as a fan the first time I saw their video for Shook Ones. Not only was it something different from other videos that I saw at the time, the lyrics were straight hardcore and to the point. I'm sure I would've been a fan of them regardless because of their affiliation with Nas being from Queensbridge, but I remember when I wanted a Hennessey jersey and bandana because P was rocking one. I also used to and still to this day will say dunn to my homies or what not because of Mobb Deep's influence. A lot of people thought he was a joke after the Jay-Z/Mobb Deep beef but Prodigy still was a hip-hop legend to me. I'm thinking of his song "You Can Never Feel My Pain" as we type this because of his long battle with sickle cell so I hope that he isn't in pain anymore and that God will bless his life and his family who is going thru it right now.
