Following the death of Mobb Deep’s Prodigy this week, Q-Tip dedicated a two hour section of his Beats 1 show “Abstract Radio” to his late friend.
Before playing a selection of Mobb Deep and Prodigy tracks, Tip introduced the show with a few words. “We lost a great one, man,” he said. “Rest in peace, rest in power to the brother. Shouts out to him and his whole family—the whole Johnson family and all that. Man.”
After news of Prodigy’s death was reported, Tip tweeted, “Man I’m rocked by the news of my man p passing… So many memories w him n havoc n the fellas. Man im @ a loss. Damn man…. Life is a gift. p was a gift to his fam and the rap world. RIP P.”
