Following Second Defacement, Prodigy Mural Has Been Removed

The Queensbridge mural created to honor the late Prodigy of Mobb Deep, who passed away on 21st June from complications due to Sickle-cell anemia has been permanently removed after vandals defaced it on two separate occasions. Photographer Raphael Gonzalez, who has been documenting the work of the mural’s creators, shared a picture of the art’s former home and commended the artists for their efforts.

“The #Prodigy tribute is no more and has been buffed black,” Gonzalez wrote on Instagram. “#queensbridge Much respect to @jeffhenriquezart_ and @elementsofstyle_nyc for their dedication and hard work, thy got a lot of love and respect from the community. True artists.”

News of the mural’s unfortunate removal first emerged when Frankie Cutlass, a producer who has worked with Mobb Deep, shared a video of its eradication on Monday (July 10).

Regardless, Prodigy is loved and respected by millions of hip-hop fans and enthusiasts around the Globe. R.I.P. Prodigy. The Legacy forever lives on.
