A multitude of Hip-Hop stars came out to pay their respect to Albert “Prodigy” Johnson at his funeral yesterday (June 29). Among the A-list MC’s were 50 Cent, LL Cool J and Pete Rock.
A private ceremony was held at the Frank E. Campbell Funeral Chapel in Manhattan, followed by a public visitation in the late afternoon for fans to send off the late Hip-Hop legend.
50 Cent and Minister Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam spoke at the funeral. The former signed Mobb Deep to G-Unit Records for a short but memorable stint.
Other rap stars who showed up for P included Remy Ma and Papoose, Maino, Tek of Smif-n-Wessun and of course longtime Mobb Deep affiliates like Twin Gambino, Big Noyd and The Alchemist (big up the Infamous Mobb).
