Prodigy Cause of Death: How Did the Mobb Deep Rapper Die?

Prodigy, one half of the rap duo Mobb Deep, has died. He was 42 years old. How did he die? What was his cause of death?

According to a statement from the rapper’s publicist, he was hospitalized a few days ago in Las Vegas after a Mobb Deep performance, and he passed away due to “complications caused by a sickle cell anemia crisis.”


Read the full statement below:

“It is with extreme sadness and disbelief that we confirm the death of our dear friend Albert Johnson, better known to millions of fans as Prodigy of legendary NY rap duo Mobb Deep. Prodigy was hospitalized a few days ago in Vegas after a Mobb Deep performance for complications caused by a sickle cell anemia crisis. As most of his fans know, Prodigy battled the disease since birth. The exact causes of death have yet to be determined. We would like to thank everyone for respecting the family’s privacy at this time.”

TMZ is reporting that Prodigy choked on an egg this morning while he was in the hospital, though it’s “unclear if that ultimately caused his death.”

We’re told officials are trying to find out if it was the choking or the sickle cell symptoms he’d been battling for days.

Prodigy had to be pulled out of a fan meet-and-greet event after Saturday night’s concert in Las Vegas … because his security team noticed he was struggling. It appears his sickle cell was exacerbated by extreme desert temps — it was reportedly as hot as 110 during the concert. The disease made him prone to dehydration and weakened his immune system.

We’re told on his way out of the venue, Prodigy told Ice-T goodbye … and headed to his hotel to get some rest.

Mobb Deep performed Saturday night (Jun. 17) in Las Vegas for the “Art of Rap” tour, along with other big names like Ghostface Killah, Ice-T, KRS-One, Onyx and others.

Peep the performance, which would end up being his last, below:

Prodigy (real name: Albert Johnson) and his partner, Havoc, formed Mobb Deep in New York City in the early 1990’s.

Throughout his career, Prodigy was considered a master wordsmith who oversaw the majority of Mobb Deep’s lyrics, while Havoc made a name for himself as one of New York’s leading record producers.

Two of Mobb Deep’s albums — The Infamous (1995) and Hell on Earth (1996) — are considered critical successes. Their biggest hits included “Quiet Storm” and “Shook Ones.”

The duo briefly disbanded in 2012 but had since reunited. Their last album, The Infamous Mobb Deep, was released in 2014

Jay Z “Changed His Name” (Again) to JAY-Z Because He Can, OK?

From Jay-Z to Jay Z to JAY-Z.

Shawn Corey Carter, better known by his rap name JAY-Z, has “changed his name” for the second time to coincide with the release of his next album.

Why would he do that, you ask? Well, when you’re worth almost $1 billion and married to Beyoncé you can do whatever the hell you please with your name, and people just have to deal.

Originally stylized as “Jay-Z,” the rapper’s stage name lost the hyphen in 2013, only for him to bring it back (but with all caps) in 2017 just in time for the release of his new album 4:44, which is due out next Friday (Jun. 30).

Pitchfork reports:

Back in 2013, after the release of his album Magna Carta Holy Grail, Hov dropped the hyphen, effectively making him Jay Z. But now, a Roc Nation rep confirms to Pitchfork that the hyphen is back, and the rapper is also officially formatting his name in all caps. So, JAY-Z it is.

Folks are speculating that 4:44 will be a response to Beyoncé’s iconic Lemonade album, which may or may not have addressed JAY-Z’s alleged infidelity and the redemption of their marriage.

A teaser for a song called “Adonis” from the project (featuring actor Mahershala Ali and Danny Glover) — which will likely be presented as a movie, like Lemonade — was released on Sunday (Jun. 18).

New album and name change aside, JAY-Z has likely diverted his attention to the birth of his twins, who reportedly arrived sometime last week. The reports were later confirmed by Beyoncé’s attention-seeking father, who was hilariously attacked by the BeyHive on Twitter.

No official word from Beyoncé or JAY-Z yet, though reports suggest the twins are still in the hospital due to a “minor issue.”

Drake Bell Tweets About Not Getting Invited to Josh Peck’s Wedding: “Ties Are Officially Cut”

Josh Peck — who represents one half of the famous Nickelodeon duo Drake & Josh — married his longtime girlfriend Paige O’Brien in Malibu over the weekend. But apparently, he did not invite his TV brother Drake Bell to the wedding, which has saddened the internet (and Drake bell, of course).

Adding to the burn of not being invited to his friend’s wedding was the fact that Josh’s Grandfathered co-star John Stamos was front and center at the ceremony, as revealed by this photo Peck posted on Instagram:

And this photo from actress Nicole Golfieri’s IG:

Taking to Twitter to air out his frustrations over not scoring an invite to the ceremony, Bell tweeted, “When you’re not invited to the wedding the message is clear…” The self-proclaimed ‘eccentric billionaire’ added in another tweet, “True colors have come out today. Message is loud and clear. Ties are officially cut. I’ll miss you brotha.”

Drake has since deleted the tweets, but they live on in the form of screenshots (see below):

According to E! Online, Drake Bell also tweeted, “Loyalty is key… ALWAYS remember where you came from,” which he also deleted.

WHAT HAPPENED?! It was all good just a week ago. No, seriously, both Drake and Josh posted the same throwback photo recently:

Instagram Photo

Naturally, the internet has reacted to Drake being left off the guest list of Josh’s wedding, and the general consensus was R.I.P. to our childhood and lasting friendships:

After four seasons on Nickelodeon, Drake & Josh went off the air in 2007, and the guys had a mini reunion in 2016 when Drake guest starred on an episode of Fox’s Grandfathered.

Drake told MTV at the time, “It was completely like old times. When we got on set, we were both a little worried. We had hung out and stayed in touch over the years, but we hadn’t worked together or tried to be funny together. So we were kind of nervous about whether we were going to be able to pick it up. But honestly, the first scene we sat down to do, it was like BAM. It felt like we were together yesterday. We just fell right back into it.”

Drake also talked about a potential revival of Drake & Josh, which would also involve co-stars Miranda Cosgrove, Jerry Trainor (aka Crazy Steve), Yvette Nicole Brown and other faves from the show.

“We’re like a family,” he said. “So we would love to come back and reprise the characters and see where they are. Josh could come home to visit the parents with his kids and his wife, and he’s got a great job, and Drake comes downstairs and he’s wearing the same clothes and still living with his parents. I think that would be pretty awesome.”

Bell added, “We’re all just waiting for that call. It would totally make sense to bring Drake & Josh back — and the fans would just love it. People would go absolutely crazy if we were able to play Drake Parker and Josh Nichols one more time.”

Looks like we won’t be getting that Drake & Josh reunion after-all, you know, since “ties are officially cut” and everything.

Charleena Lyles: Pregnant Seattle Mother Shot & Killed by Seattle Police After Calling to Report Burglary

Four children are left motherless after two Seattle police officers shot and killed a 30-year-old pregnant woman. In front of three of her children, Charleena Lyles was killed by the police who were dispatched to help her. Here are few things you need to know about the police killing of Charleena Lyles.

Charleena Lyles was killed by two white Seattle police officers after calling to report a possible burglary.

Seattle police responded to burglary call at Brettler Family Place — an apartment complex for formerly homeless families — on Sunday (Jun. 18), just after 10 a.m. Two officers entered the fourth-floor apartment of Charleena Lyles, who reportedly placed the burglary call.

According to police, shortly after arriving, Lyles began holding a knife. Both officers then opened fire on the pregnant woman. She was hit in the abdomen and chest. Police performed first aid, but Lyles was pronounced dead on the scene when firefighters arrived.

In a statement regarding the shooting, SPD says both officers “were equipped with less lethal force options, per departmental policy.” The shooting will be reviewed by SPD’s Force Investigation Team and the Office of Professional Accountability.

Lyles was a black woman and several members of her family believe race was a factor in the shooting.

Though the two officers have yet to be identified, it is confirmed they are both white and will be placed on administrative leave while the incident is being investigated.

Lyles’ family questions why such deadly force was used on a three-month pregnant woman suffering “mental health issues.”

Family members say Charleena Lyles has been battling mental illness for the past year and also revealed she was currently pregnant with her fifth child. They question the decision to use deadly force, even if she was, in fact, wielding a knife.

“Why couldn’t they have Tased her?” asked Lyles’ sister Monika Williams, who described her as tiny. “They could have taken her down. I could have taken her down.”

“She was not a person you would fear or feel intimidated by,” Domico Jones, Lyles’ brother said.

The two siblings also said Lyles had been battling “mental health issues” over the past year. The family was trying to help her, but her issues were currently untreated.

Charleena feared losing her children because of her mental illness. Three of her kids were present during the shooting.

Because of Lyles’ recent mental health issues, her family says she was afraid authorities would take her children, including one who has Down syndrome. This may explain why she was armed with a knife.

Three of Lyles’ four children were in the apartment when police shot their mother. They were reportedly two boys and a girl, ages 11, 4, and 1. However, it is unclear if they actually witnessed the shooting.

Lhora Murray lives below Charleena Lyles’ apartment and police gave her the three children to watch over following the shooting. “They shot my mom,” the 11-year-old reportedly told Murray.

“There’s no reason for her to be shot in front of her babies,” Monika Williams, Lyles’ sister yelled at reporters.

A prior police encounter with Charleena holding a pair of scissors caused two officers to respond to the June 18 burglary call.

So why did two cops respond to a call that typically only dispatches one? Police encountered Lyles earlier this month. However, instead of a knife, she was holding a pair of scissors during this incident and threatened officers.

Police responded to Lyles’ apartment earlier this month involving an incident with her boyfriend. Her sister says she was armed with scissors as protection from her boyfriend. “She didn’t charge nobody or nothing,” Williams added.

Nonetheless, Lyles was arrested June 5 on charges of harassment, obstruction of a public official, and harassment of law enforcement officers. The obstruction charge was issued because Lyles refused to hand over her child to officers while still holding scissors.

Williams said Lyles was still afraid of her children being taken away and would only release her child once Williams arrived on the scene.

Lyles was released on June 14, allegedly under the condition that she receive mental health counseling. However, this could not be confirmed.

Because of this prior incident, the June 18 call was flagged “hazard information” that “presented an increased risk to officers,” Detective Mark Jamieson told reporters, explaining the need for two officers.

The SPD released a redacted audio recording of the shooting. An officer yells “Get back! Get Back!” just seconds before several gunshots are heard.

The Seattle Police Department released audio of the June 18 incident on Monday (Jun. 19). The audio adds context to the moments before the shooting and when the two officers opened fire.

Via The Seattle Times:

“Hello, good morning,” one of the officers says in the audio. “You call the police?”
The officers continue to speak with Lyles and ask her about a reportedly stolen Xbox.

Shortly after, for reasons that are not clear from the audio, the situation escalates and an officer says, “We need help.”

“Hey! Get back! Get back!” an officer shouts before an eruption of gunfire.

The audio was captured via video dashboard cams in the police cars and was heavily redacted before being released to the public.

Before arriving to her apartment, the two unidentified officers could also be heard discussing Lyles’ prior scissors incident with SPD.

Via The Seattle Times:

“She let them in, then she started talking all crazy about how the officers weren’t gonna leave,” one of the officers says, referencing a previous call.

An officer mentions scissors.

“Wait, is this the one with like the three kids?” one officer says on the audio before the shooting.

The other officer responds: “Yeah, so this gal, she was the one making all these weird statements about how her and her daughter are going to turn into wolves.”

Videos recorded prior to Charleena Lyles’ shooting show police arriving to her apartment complex wearing tactical gear.

The Stranger reporter Steven Hsieh tweeted a video that show police arriving at Lyles’ apartment building (Brettler Family Place) in tactical gear. The video was recorded on Sunday (Jun. 18) prior to the shooting.

The neighbor who captured the footage did not want to be identified. The neighbor also recorded another video showing police talking to an unidentified man.

It’s unclear if the police in tactical gear were connected to the Lyles’ burglary call or her shooting.

The Seattle Police Department has a history of using excessive force against people with mental issues.

The Seattle Police Department has been under a federal consent decree since 2012 after the Department of Justice found the SPD uses excessive force against people with mental issues or substance abuse.

The 2011 investigation that resulted in the decree did not find the SPD had a pattern of discriminatory practices, but noted that some of its policies raised “serious concerns” on the issue of biasness.

The independent monitor that oversees the SPD’s policy reforms noted in April that the use of excessive force had gone down and that it did not negatively impact officers’ ability to do their jobs. Seattle crime rates have also remained steady.

More than 100 people held a vigil for Charleena outside her apartment complex to pay their respects and support the Lyles family.

On Sunday evening (Jun. 18), more than 100 people gathered outside the Brettler apartment complex to hold a vigil for Charleena. Photos of Lyles and her children were placed on the back of chairs and spelled her name on the pavement with lit candles.

A GoFundMe page has been created to support Lyles’ children and family.

Mugshot Madness: Juvenile Jailed for $150K Child Support Debt

Juvenile spent his father’s day in jail after being arrested in New Orleans, Louisiana over the weekend over his failure to take care of a $150,000 child support debt.

The 42-year-old rapper (real name: Terius Gray) was taken into police custody early Saturday morning (Jun 17) immediately following a performance at Southport Hall in the Jefferson Parish of N.O. Friday night.

According to the New Orleans Advocate, Civil Court Judge Nakisha Ervin-Knott ruled back in May that Juvie must spend either 30 days behind bars or pay his child support debt to his teenage son’s mother, Dionne Williams.

Court records show that Juvenile owed Williams about $170,000, of which he paid $20,000 back in April, leaving a balance of $150K. Williams also accused Gray of failing to pay more than $71K in child support between 2013 and May 2017, however, the judge hasn’t ruled on that argument, The Advocate reports.

In addition to not taking care of his child support obligations, Williams’ attorney Doug Howard said that Juvie has also skipped several court hearings in the case, leaving the judge no other choice but to send him to jail.

According to The N.O. Advocate, Louisiana judges “have authority to jail people who fail to pay child support, though it is not commonly done because it is more difficult for defendants to gather the money they owe from behind bars.”

However, in cases such as Juvenile’s, where the father clearly has the means to pay up (according to a Google search his net worth is over $2 million), judges typically jail them in an effort to help inspire them to settle their child support debts.

More on Juvenile’s arrest via The Advocate:

Gray had a well-publicized 9 p.m. concert at Southport Hall in Jefferson on Friday. He was taken into custody shortly after completing the show at the venue, two sources with knowledge of the circumstances told The New Orleans Advocate.

Orleans Parish Sheriff’s Office Deputy Warren Woorfork Jr. placed Gray under arrest. His office provides security for the city’s courthouses and is one of the agencies that serves arrest warrants issued by them.

A Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office deputy working a detail at Southport Hall was made aware of the warrant out for Gray’s arrest and agreed to participate in the collar, said that agency’s spokesman, Col. John Fortunato.

Howard on Saturday thanked the Sheriff’s Office for jailing Gray, saying, “This shows the system works no matter who you are.”

The attorney whose name is listed as representing Gray said he doesn’t represent the rapper anymore and has filed to withdraw from the case. Gray was scheduled to perform in Houston on Saturday alongside fellow New Orleans rapper Mystikal.

Juvenile is best known as a founding member of the rap supergroup Cash Money Millionaires, who all helped to launch Cash Money Records in the late 1990’s with the multiplatinum album 400 Degreez, which included the legendary New Orleans bounce anthem “Back That Azz Up.”

Juvie, who also teamed up with rappers Lil Wayne, B.G. and Young Turk to form the Hot Boyz, had a #1 hit single as a solo artist in 2004 with the song “Slow Motion.”

The BeyHive Goes IN on Beyoncé’s Dad Mathew Knowles for Tweeting About Twins’ Birth

As most of us know by now, Beyoncé ALLEGEDLY gave birth to her twins with Jay Z last week, and while we have yet to receive confirmation from the Carters themselves, one family member has decided to let the world know that the reports are true.

That lone family member is Beyoncé’s father and former manager, Mathew Knowles, who decided to tweet about the birth of his new grandchildren early Sunday morning (Jun 18), which also happened to be Father’s Day.

“Happy Birthday to the twins! Love, Granddad,” Mathew wrote in a cheesy photo of a card with a balloon backdrop. While we still don’t know exactly when the twins were born, Papa Matt’s image suggests their “birthday” was Sunday (Jun 18).

Also, note the hashtags in the tweet and the shameless plug of his Instagram handle in the photo (REALLY, MATHEW?). Couple that with the fact that NO ONE ELSE IN THE FAMILY has spoken about the twins’ birth (Neither mom Beyonce, dad Jay Z, Grandma Tina nor Auntie Solange) and you have the perfect excuse for the BeyHive to go in.

And that’s exactly what they did. See below:

To Mathew’s credit, there were a FEW Beyhivers who were nice to him:

Still… overall, the BeyHive is NOT pleased with Mathew right now:

Dear Mathew: If you don’t know, now you know… the BeyHive is not to be messed with, even if you are part of the reason why we even have Beyoncé:

Kenya Moore Shares First Photos of “Secret Wedding” to Mystery Man

Kenya Moore, the blushing bride, is finally sharing pictures of her “secret wedding.” She’s even giving us a glimpse of her mystery “husband.”

Much is still unknown about Kenya’s husband, but she revealed a few details about him and their relationship in recent Instagram posts. Accompanying one photo of Kenya in her wedding gown and holding her husband’s hand, she revealed details of their relationship and wished him a happy Father’s Day, confirming rumors he has (adult) children.

To my husband,

Happy Father’s Day to you and all the great Dads. We met a year ago but didn’t speak again until December. Since we reconnected you have been my everything, my one and only, my heart…I love you.

#devotedwife #family #happyfathersday #truelove #bliss

Instagram Photo

The above photo also happens to be the best glimpse we have (so far) at what Kenya’s new man  actually looks like.

The other wedding photo Kenya posted shows the newlyweds holding hands and looking outward towards the ocean. “A good man is hard to find but true love is even harder. I found both,” she writes.

Instagram Photo

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star got married in a secret ceremony in St Lucia last weekend. “I’m just ecstatic!” she exclusively told People Magazine. “This man is the love of my life and I’m so happy to begin our lives together.”

Kenya’s husband is reportedly a businessman and the two have been dating since December. However, don’t expect her marriage to be open for all to see on RHOA, as he reportedly wants nothing to do with the reality show. He must have learned from Matt Jordan and Kenya’s other reality boyfriends.

Speaking of Matt, Kenya’s most recent hired boy toy broke his silence on Kenya’s surprise wedding and says he was just a shocked as we all were. With an old photo of he and Kenya, Matt wrote on Instagram:

“As if the embarrassment from the show wasn’t enough, the false aligations [sic] of domestic violence, the unwarranted restraining order, the loss of business opportunities, money. My personal & professional image. I can deal with that. losing my queen is a blow I never want to feel again.

“Find out she is married from stranger online. Realizing it’s to someone she was seeing during your relationship… this is definitely the season of losses for ya boy. TKO!! I made alot of mistakes, but I loved & cherished her. I can’t lie the news of this rocked me. I pray her heart is in good hands. Take care of her. She was everything to me.

“The fight for her heart is over. I lost!! Peace…. #tko.”

Thankfully, crazy Matt can concede defeat and let Kenya be happy. And she definitely looks happy in the wedding photos she shared. The dramatics of Kenya’s love life may finally be over!

Beyoncé & Jay Z’s Newborn Twins Remain in Hospital Due to “Minor Issue”

Beyoncé and Jay Z welcomed their twins — a boy AND a girl — last Monday (Jun 12), however, a “minor issue” is keeping them from being released from the hospital, TMZ reports.

Sources connected with the family tell us the twins were born on Monday in a Los Angeles hospital. We’re told a “minor issue” surfaced, and as a result … doctors do not feel comfortable releasing them.

We do not know the nature of the issue. One source told us Beyonce also remains at the hospital, but as far as we know she’s okay. The babies are expected to be okay as well.

It’s unclear when everyone will be released.

This sounds pretty serious, however, it’s not too out of the norm for a multiple baby birth to experience some complications. Still… we hope everything and everyone is OK!

The internet has been on “Carter Twins” watch for nearly a week, and reports suggested that the duo had made their big arrival sometime last week, just in time for Father’s Day, which is today.

RELATED: Beyoncé Welcomed Twins With Jay Z “Earlier This Week”

“Bey and Jay are thrilled and have started sharing the news with their family and closest friends,” an insider revealed to People.

Amid the frenzied reports, an unidentified woman was spotted outside UCLA hospital carrying a bouquet of flowers with a card with “B & J” written on it, along with a pair of large pink and blue balloons with the words “Baby Boy” and “Baby Girl” on them, which lead everyone to believe that Beyoncé had given birth to a girl and a boy.

Beyoncé and Jay Z already have a daughter, 5-year-old Blue Ivy Carter, who we expect to be an awesome big sister.
