Havoc Performs Without Prodigy for the First Time at Rap Festival [VIDEO]
Havoc made a surprise appearance at a New Jersey stop for the Art of Rap Festival. In the video above (via TMZ), the 43-year-old producer walks out onstage to perform “Give Up The Goods” with Mobb Deep affiliate Big Noyd and rap icon Ice-T. He then followed it with a rousing rendition of “Shook Ones” with Ice-T rapping along.
Afterward, Havoc saluted his late partner-in-rhyme. "Make some noise for my motherf---ing brother. Make some noise for Prodigy! Say R-I-P!" he urged the crowd.
Prodigy's funeral was held on Thursday (June 29) in New York. Hip-hoppers LL Cool J, Remy Ma, Fat Joe, Ice-T, Questlove and other were among the mourners. The funeral was also open to the public for a few hours, so that fans could say their final farewells to the rap legend. Unfortunately, the funeral ended on a sour note as a brawl between fans and police erupted outside of the church.
Prodigy died after a life-long battle with sickle cell anemia. He was 42.
On brighter note, a mural is being created in honor of Prodigy. Check out the video below.
