Prodigy’s Jail Sentence Postponed Another Five Weeks

Prodigy of Mobb Deep was supposed to start serving his 3 ½ year sentence for a weapons conviction on Tuesday (January 8), but at the last minute a judge granted him another five weeks of freedom. According to the New York Daily News, Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Edward McLaughlin postponed the rapper’s sentencing in order to give doctors time to collect his medical records. Prodigy has long suffered from the life threatening blood disease sickle cell anemia. P’s attorney Irving Cohen told the court that his client has been in and out of hospitals his entire life because of the illness. McLaughlin has agreed to speak with state corrections officials about placing the rapper in a correctional facility with access to medical personnel. In October Prodigy accepted a plea to charges of weapons possession in exchange for the 3 ½ year sentence. The charge stems from a 2005 incident in which police discovered a .22 caliber pistol after pulling over the vehicle that him and producer The Alchemist were traveling in.

    this has nothing to do with hip hop police,this has to do with yet anoher rich nigga that is too stupid to have armed security so he arrys his own gun,i dont feel bad for any rich fuck who gets popped with guns,if u have a felony and cant have a gun,but u got enouigh money or security,and u carry a gun anyway,ur stupid..i don think any of these rapprs deserve a break when they get popped,none of us would get a break if we get popped,so they shouldnt either..just becausethey famous,or rich,or a good rapper dont mean they shouldnt have same laws as all of us..i did 2 yrs on a fucking gun charge,and that was my first charge ever,so hey should have to do the same

    • THE_TRUTH

      SOME OF THESE NIGGAS AINT THAT RICH TO BE HAVING ARMED SECURITY LIKE YOU NIGGAS THINK. SOMETIMES IT DONT PAY OFF TO RUN YOUR MOUTH AND HAVE TO HAVE ARMED SECURITY. WHATS A NIGGA TO DO ROLL WITH NO GUNS RISK GETTING CAUGTH SLIPPING OR ROLL WITH SECURITY AND GO BROKE?

  • DirtDogggy

    This whole ordeal is a big bag of ridiculousness and the entire system can suck my ballcock.(no Rupal)

    1. Average prisoner costs tax payers 30-$60k/year.

    2. In the box you get free health care, in P’s case that will be around 200k to a million or some stupid shit around that with his problems. Once again tax payers pay for.

    3. Prisons are over populated with weak ass bullshit criminals that are no real treat to society (just like P. Those pistols were just show pieces to front with or to protect himself not to run up on anyone innocent).

    Conclusion : hip-hop police the whole legal system and tax payers loose and the entire legal system is a big traffic jam of average random fuckery with no consistency.

    Judges, police, lawyers and politicians please clean my tip off.
