10 Facts XXL Learned Reading Prodigy’s Autobiography

To simply state that My Infamous Life: The Autobiography of Mobb Deep’s Prodigy is a page-turner is an understatement. The 308-page book is filled with interesting anecdotes from the hip-hop veteran about his 18-plus-years in the game. From his life-long struggle with sickle cell anemia, to his complex relationship with his longtime partner-in-rhyme, Havoc, to his numerous rap battles with adversaries like Jay-Z, Nas, Saigon and Keith Murray, the memoir serves as a compelling read for die-hard fans as well as causal listeners. We don’t want to spoil the book for those that haven’t picked it up yet (wtf are you waiting for?), but there are some nuggets we just had to share. With that in mind, XXL presents 10 facts we learned reading Prodigy’s autobiography. Enjoy.
