For the first time since the death of Albert “Prodigy” Johnson, his Mobb Deep partner, Kejuan “Havoc” Muchita took to the stage to perform some of the duo’s classic songs. Havoc and other stars gathered on stage to honor Prodigy as part of the Newark, New Jersey stop of the Art of Rap Festival tour stop on Friday (June 30).
The festival, which was started by Ice-T and continues in collaboration with Micky Bentson, went down on June 30 at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center. According to a report from All Hip Hop, Havoc, Infamous Mobb, Big Noyd, and Ice-T honored Prodigy in song. Other Hip-Hop luminaries also paid their respects such as Art of Rap tour members DMX, Ghostface Killah, Nikki D and more. The outlet added that Prodigy’s wife took to the stage with a message for the people preaching positivity and togetherness.
Reast Powerfully in Peace, Prodigy.
