Fans wishing to say their final goodbye to hip-hop legend, Prodigy of Mobb Deep, will have the opportunity to do so.

Hip hop lost Prodigy unexpectedly on June 20th due to complications with sickle cell, and since then has received an outpouring of love from fans and peers.

“This week, hip-hop suffered a painful loss, with the sudden passing of our brother, Prodigy,” Lil’ Kim said during a heartfelt tribute at the BET Awards. “His pen painted vivid pictures of street life. He made what was ugly sound beautiful.

Prodigy’s partner in rhyme, Havoc, was also present for the BET tribute. “For over 20 years, he and I went through it all and seen it all,” Havoc said. “I’m going to miss my dude. This loss is painful. But the lyrical legacy he left us will impact the culture forever. Rest in peace, Prodigy. My brother.

According to Billboard, the service for the rapper will be held at Frank E. Campbell on Madison Avenue on Thursday, June 29. There will be open public visitation from 2-5 p.m.
