It’s been a tough week for hip hop fans since news broke of rapper Prodigy‘s death — but no one took it as hard as his Mobb Deep partner Havoc.

The Queens rapper told TMZ that he thought it was a “weird rumor” when he got the call that his close friend had died. Prodigy been in and out of hospitals throughout his life with his sickle cell anemia. Havoc immediately contacted their road manager to confirm if the news was true and immediately broke down after finding out Prodigy had actually passed away.

He revealed, “The road manager was just crying like I never heard before and I just had to hang up the phone. I’m on a highway, I can’t pull over, I can’t do nothing. I could have crashed with my kids in the car. I’m still just f***ed up.” The 43-year old emcee took to Instagram to remember his late brother:
