Prodigy one half of the rap duo Mobb Deep has passed away at 42.

XXL is reporting that New York MC Prodigy, one half of hip hop duo Mobb Deep, was found unresponsive this morning and has passed away. He was 42 years old.

Prodigy has been dealing with sickle cell for years, but it’s unclear if this played a role in his passing. Some sources are reporting that he was dealing with a health crisis for the last 2 days.

Rest in Peace Prodigy
