Paying Homage: Albert “Prodigy” Johnson (November 2, 1974 – June 20, 2017)

On Tuesday 20th June 2017 the rapper Prodigy was pronounced dead after being found unconscious in Las Vegas. He die at the age of 42.

Although the cause of death is still unconfirmed, if fans were to guess, it would probably be because of his sickle cell anemia. A sickle cell crisis can kill.

Prodigy who formed a two man group called Mobb Deep had been musically entertaining the world while managing sickle cell; bringing us such tunes like Shook Ones and Survival Of The Fittest.

When Prodigy began to read more and more he became conscious and is likely the reason that he separated from Havoc therefore breaking up the group. He’s music became more focused on spirituality.

One thing is clear, 90’s music which was the era when hip hop music was at its peak, included Mobb Deep as part of the movement.
