Last spring, Prodigy was released from prison and he immediately released his first book, My Infamous Life: The Autobiography of Mobb Deep’s Prodigy. The autobiography told of the things Prodigy witnessed in the rap game. Among the people mentioned in the book are Mobb Deep, of course, Jay-Z, 50 Cent, Nas, Ja Rule, and the entire Murder Inc. camp.
Few were impressed by Prodigy’s book, others questioned the honesty written. One member of Murder Inc., Cadillac Tah, posted a rant about Prodigy on Facebook. On the other hand, Ja Rule spoke kindly of Prodigy in an interview, despite what he had to say about him. Jay-Z, who has feuded with Prodigy throughout the bulk of his career, simply ignored the things written in the book.
Ruffling the feathers of a number of rappers, Prodigy is back in the lab, writing another book. This time around, Prodigy is only writing about himself and the four years he spent in prison.
