    Another piece of my childhood gone. More Trife Life is still my favorite Mobb Deep song! And Mariah Carey’s sample on The Roof with them on the remix is a classic. RIP Prodigy.

    Absolutely amazing rap artist! His lyrics and vocal cadence gives you goosebumps…in high school bumping Shook Ones Pt. II, Temperature’s Rising, Eye For A Eye, G.O.D. Pt. III…in college bumping Quiet Storm Remix, It’s Mine, everything…so sad, but he got to make his dreams come true…when Prodigy is in the zone lyrically, he’s like RAKIM…
    I’m only 19, but my mind is older
    When the things get for real, my warm heart turns cold
    Another n**** deceased, another story gets told
    It ain’t nothing really, ayo, Dun, spark the Philly
    So I can get my mind off these yellow-backed n*****
    Why they still alive? I don’t know, go figure
    Meanwhile back in Queens the realness and foundation
    If I die, I couldn’t choose a better location
    Prayers to his family, friends and Havoc!
