Prodigy Mural Taken Down After 2nd Defacing

It was a beautiful mural dedicated to Prodigy on the morning of July 6th.  Across from the Queensbridge projects, Jeff Henriquez and Eli Lazare a.k.a. Eli-Eos, painted a portrait of the late QBC rapper on the side of Urban Upbound’s building on 13th street and 40th Avenue.

Unfortunately, the mural was vandalized less than 2 days later. White paint was thrown on the wall. A clear sign of disrespect.

The artists then spent the weekend repairing the tribute. Hours later it was just like new.

But then it happened again. People woke up Saturday the 8th to see Prodigy’s mural vandalized once more. This time, red paint.

Now, according to XXL, the Urban Upbound building mural will be permanently covered.

I personally hope no one thinks they ‘won’ in this situation. With or without the mural, Prodigy is gonna stay in people’s hearts. Fuck a wall. No matter what beef there may have been, let that shit rest.

 

Rest in peace Prodigy.
