On Thursday (June 29) the late prodigy was laid to rest in New York at a private service held at the Frank E. Campbell "Funeral Chapel" on Madison Ave.

In attendance were some of New York's finest including 50 Cent, LL Cool J, Fat Joe, Remy Ma, Papoose and Ice-T. His Mobb Deep partner, Havoc and religious leader/black activist Louis Farrakhan also attended.

After the funeral, some of the mourners in attendance took to social media to pay some more respects

I remember I had Pun signed to loud records and we would see Hav and P there all the time and would just tell jokes and of course PUN would be pranking us. I stood in the funeral today in disbelief I was so overwhelmed with sorrow just as a fan of Hip Hop music. I couldn't believe we lost a Giant. his music was original and always authentic. he and Hav stayed true to their sound. as I look in the room and saw so many people who have played a part in my life I realized how blessed we are to have had one another in this industry. first we Rap then promote then hit the road to pay our bills. I know I've been threw ups and downs financially and emotionally I can only imagine how hard it was for P to be fighting an illness his whole life and still provided for his family and most of all he did it for his fans.  New York we lost a king , a genius a legend I will truly miss him and always have love for the infamous Mobb Deep.

 Nas who couldn't make the service due to unavailability also took to his Instagram to share his condolences.

The day unfortunately wasn't all peaceful as some fans who came to honor the late Mobb Deep rapper were harrased and arrested by members of the NYPD after a little situation surfaced.

Havoc and Lil Kim earlier paid their respects to the late rap veteran during the BET Awards held on Sunday (June 25) at the Microsoft Theater.

"This week, hip-hop suffered a painful loss, with the sudden passing of our brother, Prodigy," Lil' Kim said. "His pen painted vivid pictures of street life. He made what was ugly sound beautiful."

"For over 20 years, he and I went through it all and seen it all," Havoc added. "I'm going to miss my dude. This loss is painful. But the lyrical legacy he left us will impact the culture forever. Rest in peace, Prodigy. My brother."

Prodigy real name "Albert Johnson" died last Tuesday (June 20) in a Las Vegas Hospital at the age of 42 after a long life battle with sickle cell anemia.
