The late rapper was Prodigy apparently showed signs that he was ill after his performance on Saturday. TMZ had made reports that the rapper was reportedly feeling so sick during a party in Las Vegas that he had to be wheeled out on a stretcher and taken to the hospital where he would later died.
The Mobb Deep star arrived at The Mirage for the official after party at 10:00 AM, where he was supposed to be performing. At around 1:30 a.m. Sunday, he told people he wasn’t feeling well and those around him were so concerned they placed him on a gurney. Prodigy, who suffered from sickle cell all of his life, was also showing signs of being sick earlier on that day, when he was supposed to get together with fans at a concert, but canceled because he was feeling weak.
Adding insult to injury, the Queens emcee reportedly choked on an egg Tuesday morning in the hospital, where he was getting treatment for sickle cell anemia. Prodigy’s disease was aggravated by extreme desert temperatures that reportedly had gotten as high as 110 degrees during the concert. His sickness made him prone to dehydration and caused his immune system to weaken. As we reported, the hip hop legend passed away on Tuesday, however, his cause of death has not been confirmed.
