Best. Prodigy. Tribute. Ever. #ripProdigy

 People are always questioning the hip hop credibility of Marvel, saying it's just a "money grab" doing the hip hop tribute covers.  I say that's bullshit, because dudes I know at Marvel  like Deadpool artist Mike Hawthorne sweat hip hop, son.  He shared these two sketches from his Little RED Sketchbook today in remembrance of the recent passing of legendary emcee Prodigy of Mobb Deep...

Although not necessarily a household name, Mobb Deep's contribution to hip hop is huge, and the community is reeling from the loss of another of her favorite sons.  In case you only know this line from Shook Ones because it's on the 8 Mile soundtrack, go ahead and watch this youtube playlist and get more gems from Prodigy and friends.

Like I said before, Mike didn't do these drawings to capitalize on or trivialize Prodigy's tragic and untimely death (they were completed months ago), but because he is a hip hopper with a ton of classic records burned into his brain.  You can CLICK HERE to cop a PDF copy of Mike Little RED Sketchbook on Gumroad on some name your price type shit.
