This past Wednesday (June 21), Mega went to Facebook to reflect on their past runnings together and Prodigy’s greatness.
The hip-hop vet also jumped on Instagram this week to remember Prodigy’s life.
This week, Mobb Deep’s Havoc shared some deep words about losing his childhood friend.
“We’re used to P going to the hospital, not like everyday but we’ve been dealing with this for over 20 years. He goes to the hospital, stays in there for three days, five tops, and he gets back better then he’s out. So it wasn’t nothing like, ‘Oh my God, he’s crazy sick.’ It’s just sometimes he has sickle cell crisis’. I got home, I was checking up on him and making sure like, ‘How’s P doing? He’s good?’ We hear, ‘Yeah he’s in pain but he’s doing better’ – and then, yesterday, the day of my little son’s graduation, uh, somebody called me saying that somebody told them that they had heard a weird rumor – this is at 11 o’clock in the morning – that P passed away in a Las Vegas hospital. I know he’s in the hospital but come on, I know he’s not dead – rumors like that always get around, some dumb sh*t, so whatever. I was really laughing to be honest with you because I hadn’t directly spoken to P but I knew his status every day that I had left. Then I was like, ‘Let me call our road manager – just to ease my brain even though I know it was a lie.’ … The road manager was just crying like I had never heard before and I just had to hang up the phone. And all this time I’m driving my with my little five-year-old son that just graduated from kindergarten on our way to go eat somewhere – I’m on a highway, I can’t pull over, I can’t do nothing. I could have crashed – I’m still just f*cked up. I can’t even listen to ‘Shook Ones’ or any songs. I can hardly look at the pictures.” (TMZ)
Earlier in the week, G-Unit’s 50 Cent talked about Prodigy’s quiet battle with sickle cell anemia.
A few nights ago, NBA superstar LeBron James paid some serious homage to Prodigy during a haircut.
LeBron is on his Instagram story paying homage to Prodigy.
