After being enacted, vandalized, restored, and vandalized again, the commemorative Prodigy mural has been deemed too much trouble. In an unfortunate turn of events, the mural by Jeff Henriquez and Eli Lazare will be painted over permanently. Hot 97 has shared some depressing footage of the mural being covered up, and fans of Prodigy and Mobb Deep will no doubt shake their heads over the blatant disrespect.

It's shameful, really, and seems to epitomize the old adage "this is why we can't have nice things." While the mural may be gone, take solace in the fact that Prodigy's legacy can always be remembered through his music.
