On Thursday (June 22), Eric B. and Rakim appeared via phone on Ebro in the Morning to talk about their reunion concert. But first, they paid their respects to Prodigy who passed away earlier this week.

“I had a lot of respect for Prodigy,” said Rakim. “He brought the hood to the booth; he was one of the cats I respected. [He] was one of the kings of the hood in this rap game.”

Eric B. was at the Las Vegas show where Mobb Deep performed. The veteran DJ said that Prodigy didn’t look like he was sick. After their performance, Prodigy wasn’t feeling well, and despite his sickness, he still took pictures for fans backstage.
“It was a great show, great energy,” said Eric B.

As for their reunion show, Eric B. & Rakim described it as a “celebration for hip-hop.”
