(Radio.com) Rapper Prodigy, one-half of the duo Mobb Deep, passed away last month at the age of 42 following complications related to sickle cell anemia. Yesterday week, Hip Hop luminaries (including 50 Cent, LL Cool J, Ice-T and Fat Joe) attended a public memorial in New York City. Prodigy's family scheduled a viewing that was open to the public--giving fans a chance to pay their respects in person.

The late rapper's Mobb Deep partner Havoc also attended the memorial, which featured a live band, a spoken word performance and a series of eulogies. Remy Ma was there as well, reports Billboard.

Rapper Nas was not present at the memorial, but he shared a heartfelt Instagram post expressing his grief and respect: 'This one hit home. Glad we spoke a little before your transition. Time is precious, don't waste it, have those difficult conversations now because tomorrow is never promised. Luv Forever." Read more here.
