Havoc Speaks on Prodigy’s Passing

Thursday, June 22nd, 2017

Over the past couple of days there has been an immense outpouring of support and condolences for the family and friends of Mobb Deep’s Prodigy after his untimely passing earlier this week due to complications from sickle-cell anemia. Today we hear from P’s longtime partner and one of his closest friends, Havoc.

In a video statement he provided to TMZ, Hav explains how he first heard that P had been admitted to a Las Vegas hospital and the subsequent rumors of his passing, but didn’t think much of it because of the frequency of Prodigy’s hospital visits over the course of his life.

He eventually got the confirmation from their road manager after leaving his son’s graduation ceremony and nearly broke down while driving. Hav is understandably distraught after losing a friend and creative partner he’s known since they were 15 years old and says he’s having a hard time even listening to any Mobb music or looking at photographs of P.
