The BET Awards will pay tribute to Prodigy, a small tribute which will feature his rap partner Havoc and Lil Kim honoring him on their own. According to TMZ, Kim and Hav were late adds to the show as presenters. They will also share some personal words, paying respects to the Mobb Deep rapper.
BET Awards execs scrambled to put together a tribute performance after Prodigy’s death Tuesday, but didn’t have enough time. Artists had already signed contracts to perform at the awards, and BET didn’t want to burn bridges by changing their sets, which have been planned for weeks.
