New York rappers Nas, Lil’ Kim, Ice-T, Big Daddy Kane and many more high-profile artists are expected to remember Prodigy in-person. New reports claim the Big Apple veterans will show up today (June 29) at Capital P’s Manhattan funeral.
According to reports, the public service is expected to start this afternoon with handfuls of notable faces in attendance.
Sources connected to the service tell us Prodigy’s family has invited an A-list of rappers who worked with Mobb Deep or came up at the same time … including Nas, Lil Kim, Big Daddy Kane, Ice-T, Naughty By Nature, Onyx. Of course, Prodigy’s partner, Havoc, will also be there. (TMZ)
Earlier this week, details surfaced surrounding Prodigy’s funeral service.
On Thursday, there will be a special funeral service for Prodigy in New York City at Frank E. Campbell, popularly known as “The Funeral Chapel.” From 2 to 5 p.m., open public visitation will be allowed for family, friends and fans hoping to send their final goodbyes to the revered star. (Billboard)
Last weekend, music mogul Master P bashed TV network BET over doing a last-minute tribute to P at its annual awards show.
The Truth Hurts…BET Would Have Never Changed Their Show For Prodigy If He Was Still Alive!! It was a great thing acknowledging and celebrating the life of Prodigy and all of his accomplishments. But It’s a shame that none of these artists are told how great they are while they’re alive. Why can’t they get their flowers and tokens of appreciation while they’re still living? I know the truth hurts. I just have one serious question… Was Prodigy or Mobb Deep on BET’s radar last week… were they invited to the red carpet event, offered guest passes or an invite to perform at the awards show in the last 10 years? I’m willing to bet the answer is NO. I came to support my daughter today on the BET Experience stage but I decided that my family and I will not participate in the red carpet or awards events this year. I love my people and I support them but we really need to do better by each other. We lost a very talented brother, Prodigy. I send my condolences to his family. Hopefully, one day we can start appreciating the talented sisters and brothers while they are still alive. I know that what I am saying may ruffle a few feathers but the truth needed to be heard.
