Prodigy, of the legendary NYC hip-hop duo Mobb Deep sadly passed away at the young age of 42 on June 20. The rapper had been battling with sickle-cell anemia, what most speculated to be the cause of his death, but recently it was found out that the actual cause of his death was accidental choking.
The rap legend was hospitalised in order to receive treatment for his sickle-cell anemia – an illness he had battled for the entirety of his life – when he accidentally choked on an egg which unexpectedly led to his passing. It was revealed by the Clark County Coroner’s office that the cause of death was accidental and was not in direct relation to his illness.
