Honestly, the news of Prodigy’s death is still messing with my soul. I’m sure everyone else who has held Mobb Deep close to their heart since they were kids can relate. He was only 42-years young, man. Our condolences go out to P’s loved ones.

I penned a personal essay about P for VIBE.com — which you can read below.

migos-billboard-2

Migos are the stars of Billboard Magazine’s upcoming March issue, which hits newsstands on Mar. 18. The cover story done by Chris Martins, chronicles the trio’s rise in Atlanta’s rap scene and jump to pop culture stardom over the past two years, leading up to their No. 1 smash-hit “Bad and Boujee” and chart-topping album CULTURE. Shot by Olivia Bee, the group of Takeoff, Quavo and Offset pose in a country-themed shoot, saddling up on horses and holding chickens as they’re draped in the latest styles by Haider Ackermann, AMIRI, Gucci, Saint Laurent, and more.

One quote catching the attention of readers is a comment by Quavo, touching on his homophobic comments on ILOVEMAKONNEN in his Rolling Stone profile. “We ain’t saying it’s nothing wrong with the gays,” Quavo told Rolling Stone. “He first came out talking about trapping and selling Molly, doing all that.” He’d later frown according to the feature, saying “That’s wack, bro.” Migos as a collective would issue a statement apologizing, and speaking with Billboard he touched on the subject.

“When [Makonnen’s] music came out, I thought it was hard, so if he would’ve come out the same way…,” he said. “I got a record with Frank Ocean [“Slide,” a Calvin Harris track featuring Migos and Ocean]. That closes my case.”

Check out photos and behind-the-scenes video from the shoot below.
