Remembering Hip-Hop Legend: Prodigy
Take a moment to listen to my tribute mix to Mobb Deep’s very own “Prodigy.” Gone but never forgotten.
Every time we lose someone in Hip Hop recently, i feel like we’re talking about a 40 something year old whose health has failed them… This week, unfortunately, has been no different.
I couldn’t believe the news when it came across my Twitter feed. Another one of my Hip Hop heros passed away suddenly and unexpectedly. Albert Johnson, better known to the world as Prodigy, one half of the rap duo Mobb Deep, died at the age of 42. I had to pay my respects by getting some of the biggest songs and album cuts on the radio!
Recorded LIVE on Tuesday, June 20, 2017, on Hot 99.1 Albany, NY, I spin some of Prodigy solo joints and Mobb Deep greatest hits as well as some of his best album cuts mixed only as I do – so lock in and rock out!
The Heat Wave, Hip Hop, R&B, Reggae & Club Bangers WEEK NIGHTS (Mon-Thu) @8pmEST & Fridays @6pmEST on Hot 99.1fm Albany, Hot991.com & the RadioPup app!
