Prodigy, one half of Mobb Deep, has died in Las Vegas … TMZ has learned.
His publicist says he was hospitalized “a few days ago in Vegas after a Mobb Deep performance for complications caused by a sickle cell anemia crisis. As most of his fans know, Prodigy battled the disease since birth.” The publicist added … “the exact cause of death has not been determined.”
Prodigy was in Vegas over the weekend performing with the Art of Rap tour … with Ghostface Killah, Onyx, KRS-One, and Ice-T … to name a few. Mobb Deep performed Saturday night.
Prodigy and his partner, Havoc, formed Mobb Deep in NYC in the early ’90s. Their biggest hits include “Quiet Storm” and “Shook Ones.” He was 42.

Just in case you hadn’t had your fill of Drakenews lately, apparently famed rapper Kendrick Lamar is taking shots at the OVO frontman on Dr. Dre’s early released album Compton: A Soundtrack by Dr. Dre. Lamar is rumored to be throwing shade due to his suspicious verses on the tracks “Darkside/Gone” and Deep Water,” in which he mentions the number “6,” beef, and even refers to himself as the great white shark who senses blood. Not to mention, Kendrick may have already directed some punches Drizzy’s way on his track “King Kunta.” Check out some excerpts below and see what you think.
“You scared of my heist now/But still I got enemies giving me energy/I wanna fight now/Subliminals sending me all of this hate/I thought I was holding the mic down.”
“They liable to bury him/They nominated six to carry him/They worry him to death but he no vegetarian/The beef is on his breath inheritin’ the drama better than a Great White/N*gga, this is life in my aquarium!”
“Feel’s like you’re drowning, don’t you?/About a hundred miles down in that ocean/It’s over, shoulda never jumped in/If you can’t swim (if you can’t swim, if you can’t swim)/Oh my God, where’s a life guard when you need one?”
“Motherf*cker know I started from the bottom.”
