After Prodigy passed away earlier this week, people started sharing how the late rapper's music touched them throughout the years. On Wednesday's episode of Desus & Mero, the hosts did just the same. When Desus asked his co-host about his favorite Mobb Deep song, Mero shared why "Survival of the Fittest" is so important to him.

Apparently one day Mero was listening to the track on his Walkman and doing graffiti when the cops pulled up. With Prodigy's music blasting in his ears, the VICELAND host made a dash for it and was able to escape the police.

"He gave me the energy I needed," Mero said about the Mobb Deep rapper. Prodigy was a musician who always made him feel invincible.
