Albert Johnson better known as Prodigy from the infamous Mobb Deep could already be Albert Johnson, M.D in another life. The one rule of physics most people don’t ever put into deep thought. “Energy can neither be created nor destroyed; rather, it transforms from one form to another.” Prodigy’s uncanny skill to surgically attack peoples anatomy in his verses has always been a marvel.
For all of those who wanna profile and pose
Rock you in your face, stab your brain with your nose bone
The masses first introduction to the Mobb on Shook Ones pt 2, Prodigy spits a gruesome death in his first verse. Prescribing vicious rhymes to help you with that cough, P lets off another dosage.
Those that listen, get addicted to my diction
Fuck rhymes I write prescriptions
For your disease generic rap just not potent like P
1, 100 C.c.’s on the throttle
Informing his listeners about the dangers of dehydration.
I catch bullets in my stomach, and them shits burn
I wake up sweatin, holdin my stomach cause it hurt
Yo the shit seem too real, I’m dyin of thirst
I gotta drink mad water just to calm me down first
‘fore I get back to sleep, and get some rest
Then I can’t get back to sleep, I’m too stressed
I got the shotty real close, right under my bed
I know that work, cause I been practicin
with my gauge at the range, nigga I’m nice wit it
Nigga motherfuck them dreams, I’m real life wit it
You’ll be coughin up yo’ spleen, guts an’ all kinda shit
Showing off his ability to diagnose an injury before delivering the shots.
Don’t force me to pop these shots in your frame, leave you blood clots in the brain
And that’s not supposed to bleed, how you gon pull through with them holes
Physician P dissecting a body part into sections with other future doctors.
Harms break em down, rapper Noyd cut his throat
Don swoop em up or Gotti stomp em out
Each twin grab a arm, pick this nikka up
Knitty turn his face to me, let me break him up
I throw him up against the wall and put a hole in his face so big
It almost took his whole face off
RIP to Prodigy. One of the illest, most graphic rappers of all time. I’ll leave you with a classic display of his lyrics.
