Kendrick Lamar, Lil Kim & HavocAll Honor Prodigy at BET Awards

Prodigy got the honoring he deserved at the BET Awards … and it came courtesy of his partner in rhyme, Havoc, Lil Kim and a surprise mention from Kendrick Lamar.
We broke the story … Havoc and Kim followed through on plans to give a special shout out to Mobb Deep’s Prodigy Sunday while presenting the Best Male Hip Hop Artist Award to Kendrick.
Even Kung Fu Kenny — in what appeared to be an impromptu nod — paid his respects to the fallen rap legend … saying he inspired his first mixtape at age 16.
As we reported … Prodigy’s cause of death has been delayed pending toxicology results. His camp suggested he died after a lifelong battle with sickle cell anemia, and our sources tell us he also choked on an egg in the hospital shortly before he died.
