Well folks, we lost a true legend today. Prodigy, original H.N.I.C and co-founder of Mobb Deep has reportedly passed away in Las Vegas at the age of 42. A rap icon since the release of Mobb Deep’s The Infamous, P is responsible for some of the illest verses ever committed to record during the height of New York City’s dominance in the mid-90’s and has influenced more MCs and fans that we could possibly imagine. Prodigy’s bars perfectly captured the essence of the city at its grimiest and will go down in history as some of the best gangster rap ever written, period. P’s cause of death has yet to be announced, but any fan of his knows he put up a valiant fight against sickle-cell anemia for most of his adult life. UPDATE: A statement from P’s publicist has been included below. Apparently, he had been dealing with severe complications from his illness over the last several days.  Rest in Peace Prodigy….. #MobbDeep #QB #HNIC
