In an eye-opening final interview shortly before his death last month, late rapper Prodigy gets candid about genocide against Black people, a skepticism of the medical industry and his deep struggles with spirituality.
In the season finale of VICELAND’s The Therapist, Prodigy outlines his internal struggles with the truths of his life and the chronic pain of his blood disorder, Sickle Cell anemia, with which he was diagnosed at 3 months old and struggled up to his death on June 20 at the age of 42.
“Ive been given guidance, supernatural guidance, that people wouldn’t even understand if i tried to talk to them about it,” he tells host, Dr. Siri Sat Nam Singh. “Supernatural experiences.”
Prodigy revealed that his chronic pain made him question the existence of God in his youth.
“I feel like it gave me a mental disorder a little bit,” he said. “It made me not believe in God. Just you know, having conversations with God, begging God to make the pain go away. And God is not responding, so I don’t believe in that.”
Still, he said that eventually, he built up his faith after certain experiences where the Lord revealed himself to him. From there, as his faith started to grow, he asked God to see signs that what he believed was real.
