True Hip-Hop fans are still in mourning after the untimely death of Prodigy. One particular person who is having trouble processing Bandana P’s passing is his longtime partner in classic material creation Havoc of Mobb Depp.
Havoc told TMZ he was driving from his 5-year-old’s kindergarten graduation when he got word of what he hoped was a bad rumor.
“They heard the P passed away in a Las Vegas hospital. Now I know that he’s in the hospital, but come on,” said Havoc, who noted P’s battle with sickle cell anemia. “I know he’s not dead. He goes to the hospital all the time.”
Unfortunately, P’s death for Havoc was confirmed when he called their road manager.
He said, “I’m still just f*cked up. I can’t even listen to ‘Shook Ones’ or any song. I can hardly look at the pictures.”
Havoc is now 43, and he met P, born Albert Johnson, when he was 15 years old.
The exact cause of Prodigy’s death has yet to be determined.
