Havoc initially thought that news of fellow Mobb Deep member Prodigy’s death was a “weird rumor.”
Speaking with TMZ, Havoc said that he was aware Prodigy was in the hospital since Sunday following Mobb Deep’s performance in Las Vegas. However, Havoc said that he was not too concerned, saying that it was not uncommon for Prodigy to have to get checked up for his sickle cell disorder and that he had checked in with Prodigy multiple times following his hospitalization.
“I was really laughing, to be honest with you,” Havoc said when the rumors began to circulate that Prodigy had died. Only after calling Mobb Deep’s road manager did he realize that the rumor was true.
“I could’ve crashed with my kids in the car,” Havoc said, who had called the road manager while driving from his five-year-old son’s kindergarten graduation.
