Prodigy Of Mobb Deep Passed Away

Earlier this week, Prodigy of Mobb Deep passed away at the age of 40. Those of you that know me, know that Mobb Deep, specifically Prodigy was a huge influence on my style. He was one of the best story tellers in hip hop hands down. I wrote a tribute to him a few days ago. Here it is in it's entirety: 

Sitting here bumping Mobb Deep genuinely upset that Prodigy is gone. I never had a chance to meet him. But he was such an influence on my style. He was so vivid with his words and the way he painted pictures. I remember sitting in my room in '95 and '96 just soaking in The Infamous and Hell On Earth. Prodigy's words just complimented Havoc's beats perfectly and later on, the Alchemist's beats. I've had many influences on flows, song structure, album sound, etc...  

But, Prodigy was definitely a main influence for me. As hip hop evolves and rap evolves the thing that will never change is a great story. Prodigy was definitely up there with the best of the story tellers. R.I.P. Thank you for your contribution to our culture and making me a better MC in my early years. #TheInfamous
