Prodigy one half of the rap group Mobb Deep, has died in Las Vegas.
His publicist says he was hospitalized “a few days ago in Vegas after a Mobb Deep performance for complications caused by a sickle cell anemia crisis. As most of his fans know, Prodigy battled the disease since birth.”
The publicist added … “the exact cause of death has not been determined.”
Prodigy was in Vegas over the weekend performing with the Art of Rap tour … with Ghostface Killah, Onyx, KRS-One, and Ice-T … to name a few. Mobb Deep performed Saturday night.
Prodigy and his partner, Havoc, formed Mobb Deep in NYC in the early ’90s. Their biggest hits include “Quiet Storm” and “Shook Ones.”
RIP to Prodigy and prayers go out to his family.
Vlad Tv: Lifetime is bringing a biopic centered around the final years of Michael Jackson’s life to television.
The A&E network station released a teaser for Michael Jackson: Searching for Neverland, in anticipation of its May 29 premiere, this week. The film will be based on a book co-authored by a group of bodyguards who protected Michael in his last days, and much of the promo shows actors Chad L. Coleman and Sam Adegoke facing interrogation by feds suspecting their involvement in his death. Fans can also expect to get a glimpse into how Michael’s relationship with his children [Prince, Blanket, and Paris] shaped up prior to the fatal 2009 overdose that claimed his life.
Immediate reactions to the trailer had to do the striking resemblance the actor selected to play Michael bears. That could very well have to do with the fact that they may have seen him before. Longtime MJ impersonator Navi fills the role. Navi worked alongside Michael for years, as his hand-picked body double and press decoy.
Tell us what you think about the trailer. We got our Fetty Wap eye on this project.

Remy Ma is coming after Nicki Minaj with a very thorough diss track, “ShETHER.” The nearly seven-minute song, which uses the beat from Nas’ “Ether,” employs insults both obvious and not.
There’s accusations of ghostwriting, questioning of skill (“to be the queen of rap, you have to actually rap”) repetition of the line “fuck Nicki Minaj,” and a section that lists Nicks from Jonas to Cage. The release is seemingly a response to Minaj’s new track with Gucci Mane, “Make Love,” which had the Minaj lines, “You see, silly rabbit, to be the queen of rap/You gotta sell records, you gotta get plaques.” Basically, the cover art is an accurate representation of the vibe coming off “ShETHER.” Meanwhile, Minaj was quick to respond with an Instagram post shadily pointing out the lackluster sales of Remy Ma’s Plato O Plomo. Settle in folks, whaddya wanna bet this beef isn’t over?
The Beef is on…Pop the hood on Remy’s “shETHER”
