Hip-hop lost a legend last week and his name was Prodigy. The rapper was well known from the group Mobb Deep and upon his passing, the hip-hop community showed their love and praise for their fallen soldier. In a recent interview on Hot 97’s Peter Rosenberg’s late show, Kendrick Lamar and Detroit legend Eminem recited their favorite Prodigy verses.
To honor the late great, Kendrick dropped Prodigy’s “Genesis” verse from his album H.N.I.C. and Em dropped “Survival of the Fittest” from the album The Infamous. After spitting his favorite verse, Em said a few kind words about his long time friend and hip-hop pioneer:
“I just want to say rest in peace to Prodigy,” Em said. “We love you, homie. Hip Hop loves you. You will forever be missed.”
Listen to the entire mix below including K. Dot’s and Eminem’s verses as Rosenberg dedicated the whole show to Prodigy and his legacy.
