Legendary rap icon Prodigy of Mobb Deep was laid to rest in New York City Thursday and more than a few fellow artists came out to pay their respects. How fitting.

Celebrities and hip hop stars flocked to the Frank E. Campbell "Funeral Chapel" on the Upper East Side to say a final goodbye at a private funeral service. Attendees included industry heavyweights like LL Cool J, 50 Cent, Minister Farrakhan, Remy Ma, Fat Joe, Mobb Deep’s Havoc, Ice-T, and Questlove, among others.

It seems that the service was shut down by police officers at some point, which Tef Poe talked about on social media (while also posting an array of amazing clips and photos).

On a brighter note, Instagram was filled with odes to the late rapper, from fans across the globe and his circle. Even 50 Cent chimed in, sharing a snap from the event and captioning this with, “I never spoke at a wake or funeral before but I felt like I had to say something at P's Rest In Peace prodigy🙏🏿 God Bless.” 

Other messages praised Prodigy for his many feats throughout the years; our favorite thus far read “So many of his accomplishments were on display today. I met his brother and shared my gratitude with his family for his work. This was a sentimental moment for myself as a lifelong student of this culture we call hip hop. Fly high #Prodigy #MobbDeep”

Rest In Peace to the God. Pigs shut us down at the funeral today. But it was all love amongst his friends, family, and admirers. #MobbDeep Rest up #Prodigy

Fans also made a memorial for him outside. Amazing. 

The musician extraordinaire passed away at the age of 42 last week. He had recently been hospitalized for a sickle cell crisis after a performance in Las Vegas. While he battled with sickle cell anemia since birth, he still managed to make his mark on the world.

Here’s to you, Prodigy. The world will not be the same without you.

Sending lots of love and peace to his friends and family.
