Mobb Deep‘s Prodigy died this summer from accidental choking. A long-awaited official cause of death for the Mobb Deep co-founder has become public knowledge.

After weeks of investigation, an official ruling has been made on P’s death.

The Clark County Medical Examiner has made the determination after completing its investigation into Prodigy’s June 20 death. As TMZ first reported, he was in a Las Vegas hospital when he choked on an egg. Prodigy was in the hospital getting treatment for sickle cell anemia — which he’d battled his entire life, and had flared up immediately following a performance in severe Las Vegas heat. (TMZ)

Last month, New York rapper Pete Rock shared a vintage Mobb Deep pic.

In early July, Havoc treated fans to a throwback Prodigy pic.

A few nights prior, rap veteran Nas penned some heartfelt words about Capital P.
