Mobb Deep rapper Prodigy passed away tragically earlier this year, but at the time, details about his death weren't known. Now, a new report has suggested a cause of death for the influential emcee.

TMZ is reporting that Prodigy choked to death by accident, as per information from the Clark County Medical Examiner. He supposedly choked on an egg while in hospital. He was there in order to get treatment for sickle cell anemia, a condition he'd battled for his entire life. He was 42 when he died.
