It’s been over a month since Prodigy‘s untimely passing and medical examiners have finally revealed the cause of death.

You may recall that just a day before the Mobb Deep rapper’s passing on June 20th, Prodigy was hospitalized due to the Las Vegas heat, which reached up to 110 degrees, causing his sickle-cell anemia to flare up. Now, TMZ reports that the emcee’s death was not sickle-cell related, but is actually listed as an accidental choking. It says Prodigy choked on an egg while in a Las Vegas hospital getting treatment for sickle-cell anemia.

The world is still shocked over Prodigy’s untimely passing. He was laid to rest in New York on June 29 in a star-studded private service with appearances from 50 Cent, LL Cool J and many others.

May he rest in peace.
