OVO Sound boss Drake might have collaborations with Jay Z and Lil Wayne under his belt but he might have low-key had the utmost respect for late rapper Prodigy. The 6 God has put some major respect on the Mobb Deep co-founder’s name.
Drizzy went to Instagram last night (June 21) with some priceless throwback pics of himself and Capital P together.
A few hours ago, music mogul Diddy reflected on his close-knit bond with Prodigy.
“I want to give a rest in peace to my brother Prodigy. A lot of y’all may not know this but after school when they were coming up, before they was Mobb Deep, they used to come to my office after school in uptown and I just took a love and liking to them, you know? I just wanted to make sure they were protected because I was one of the first cats in the industry that really had an office for young cats to come and get that vibe. Prodigy was probably one of the nicest cats that I’ve known and had the chance to meet. Extremely talented. That’s my personal Prodigy story. Rest in peace, we love you, we’ll miss you and we’ll keep rocking for you. Peace to Prodigy.”
Diddy also shared a hilarious story about how strapped Mobb Deep were when they rolled into his office.
“Whenever they came to my office, Mobb Deep, they always had guns with them. [laughs] What you heard is what you got. They were some bad a** kids and they made some tough a** music that will always, is hip-hop supreme. Hip-hop. You wanna listen to some hip-hop? You listen to Mobb Deep. Prodigy? I miss you, man. For real, but when you were bringing all those guns to my office and things like that, you’d be scaring the f*ck out of me and at the same time I was like, ‘These are my little young’uns, man.’ And man, man, thank-you for those times Prodigy.”
Last night, reports surfaced about Prodigy receiving medical treatment over the weekend in Las Vegas.
The Mobb Deep rapper arrived at The Mirage for the official after-party at 1OAK. He was supposed to perform, but at around 1:30 AM Sunday he told people he was feeling bad and those around him were so concerned they put him on the gurney. The emergency followed an incident earlier in the evening … where he was supposed to meet with fans at an earlier concert that day but canceled because he was feeling ill. We got a photo of the rapper being wheeled out the back of The Mirage. (TMZ)
