Prodigy Mural In Queens Defaced
A mural in Queens memorializing Prodigy of Mobb Deep was defaced less than 24 hours after it was completed.
The rapper, born Albert Johnson, passed away unexpectedly last month from complications caused by a sickle cell anemia crisis.

Artists Jeff Henriquez and Eli Lazare painted the mural on the Urban Upbound in Queens honoring Prodigy over the span of five days.
The finished product was truly a beautiful work of art!
It’s truly disheartening and disgusting that someone would vandalize the mural.
I’m told there are plans to fix the mural.
