Prodigy's memory lives on.
Prodigy may be gone, but he's not forgotten. The Mobb Deep co-founder has officially been commemorated through one of hip-hop's founding principles: graffiti. The mural was painted on a wall across from the project building in which Prodigy and Havoc grew up, brought to life as a labor of love from artists Jeff Henriquez and Eli-Eos.
The artists joined forces on the project out of love and respect for the late great rapper. You can check out some photographs of the process via Henriquez' Instagram below.
