It’s been a tough week for hip hop fans since news broke of rapper Prodigy‘s death — but no one took it as hard as his Mobb Deep partner Havoc.

The Queens rapper told TMZ that he thought it was a “weird rumor” when he got the call that his close friend had died. Havoc immediately contacted their road manager, “The road manager was just crying like I never heard before and I just had to hang up the phone. I’m on a highway, I can’t pull over, I can’t do nothing. I could have crashed with my kids in the car. I’m still just f***ed up.”

The 43-year old emcee took to Instagram to remember his late brother:

Forever
