This is just sad! For the second time in a few days, a mural erected in Queensbridge paying tribute to late rapper Prodigy has been defaced.

Artists Jeff Henriquez and Eli Lazare painted the mural last week, as a tribute to the hometown rap legend.

24 hours, the piece was defaced, leaving many shocked and outraged.

It was eventually restored, but has since been defaced a second time.

Sadly, Prodigy’s mural is now being permanently painted over in black, according to reports.

Prodigy passed away last month in Las Vegas following complications with sickle cell anemia. He was just 42 years old.
