Coroner Confirms Prodigy Of Mobb Deep Exact Cause Of Death | Rap News

Rapper Prodigy of the East Coast Gangsta Rap Group “Mobb Deep” died after choking on an egg while being treated for sickle cell anaemia in hospital, a coroner has confirmed.

The rapper — real name is Albert Johnson — was on tour in Las Vegas alongside Ghostface Killah, Onyx, KRS-One, and Ice-T, when the incident occurred 20 June.

Clark County’s medical examiner ruled Prodigy died from ‘accidental choking’, TMZ reporting that an egg was involved.

Sickle cell anaemia is a condition in which red blood cells contort into a sickle shape and die early, leaving a shortage of healthy red blood cells that can lead to a painful blockage of blood flow.
