Prodigy and rihanna dating
"It is with extreme sadness and disbelief that we confirm the death of our dear friend Albert Johnson, better known to millions of fans as Prodigy of legendary NY rap duo Mobb Deep," the statement read.
"Prodigy was hospitalized a few days ago in Vegas after a Mobb Deep performance for complications caused by a sickle cell anemia crisis.
The exact causes of death have yet to be determined.
Not long after, Johnson united with Kejuan "Havoc" Muchita, but when Jive wouldn't re-sign them as a duo, the pair struck out on their own.
By the time Mobb Deep released The Infamous, they'd signed to RCA and Rifkind and Rich Isaacson's formative hip-hop label, Loud, whose roster also included NYC stalwarts the Wu-Tang Clan, Big Pun and Dead Prez.
Rihanna lived the life of a normal island girl going to Combermere, a top sixth form school.
Rihanna won numerous beauty pageants and performed Mariah Carey's single "Hero" in a school talent show.
