Prodigy of Mobb Deep recently met a 13-year old boy who has sickle cell anemia. Having the disease himself, P was able to drop some knowledge on how to stay healthy and not suffer from so much pain while dealing with it.
“I used to look at sickle cell like that sh*t was a curse, like God cursed me. I used to be mad as hell at God. But it aint even about that,” P told the teen. “I learned that sickle cell is like an alarm. You know like a burglary alarm when someone breaks into your house? That’s what sickle cell is for your body,” P explained. “Basically what it means is you’re putting something bad into your body and it’s triggering your alarm system. That’s how you gotta look at it.”
