The 42-year-old rapper Prodigy, a member of Mobb Deep

The American rapper Albert Johnson, known by the stage name Prodigy and for being one of two members of the group Mobb Deep, passed away at the age of 42 in Las Vegas, reported Rolling Stone magazine.

The representative of Mobb Deep confirmed to this publication the death of Prodigy after he was hospitalized after a concert in Las Vegas due to complications caused by sickle cell anemia he had suffered since he was born.

“The exact causes of his death have yet to be determined. We would like to thank everyone for respecting the privacy of the family at this time,” added the representative.

His musical adventures partner, Havoc (Kejuan Muchita), today released a photo with Prodigy in his profile of the social network Instagram with a simple message: “Forever.”

Originally from the Queens neighborhood of New York, Mobb Deep achieved prominence in the 1990s within the hardcore and gangsta rap scene of the country’s East Coast.

His albums include “The Infamous” (1995) and “Hell on Earth” (1996) and songs like “Shook Ones, Pt. II”.

Prodigy, who also released a solo career whose latest album “Hegelian Dialectic – The Book of Revelation” was published last January, spent three years in prison, from 2008 to 2011, after being convicted of possessing weapons.
