Prodigy Still Free, Granted One Week Extension

Prodigy was given another week of freedom on Wednesday due to health complications related to his sickle cell anemia. According to the New York Post, P, who was due to begin serving his 3 ½ sentence on a weapons conviction this week, was hospitalized with severe lung pain. The rapper may also require a hip replacement, which would be his second since last year. “Everybody wants to get this done,” his lawyer Irving Cohen said of the sentence. “But this is a crisis situation.” P was initially scheduled to begin his sentence on January 8, but was granted a month to allow doctors to collect his medical records. Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Edward McLaughlin wants an update on the rapper’s condition next week. “It could be he will have to have the operation in the state prison system,” McLaughlin said. In related news, the release of Prodigy’s new album, H.N.I.C. 2 has been pushed back to April 8.

    Looks like somebody’s stalling.How long is this gonna happen ? before he was suppose to go in a while ago all of a sudden his health was acting up.I think that’s called his nerves telling him he ain’t as gangsat as he claimes and now he’s gonna be around REAL gangsta’s and some of them are Saigon fans.Maybe he should have stop talking all that shit and doing stupid shit because it’s go time now nigga,man up.50 can’t hold your hand now.

      God damn dude, i think this dude(prodigy) already has seen more shit than most people in this f*ked up world. I honestly dont think this is nerves, the dude has history of sickness because of his sickel cell. Even if he wanted to prospone his sentence he must face his sentence, you dont get away with 3 ½ years because of sickell cell dude. Please let him do his thang, and inshallah he will come out of prison better person.

      Stop hating !

    ‘It could be he will have to have the operation in the state prison system,’ McLaughlin said.

    P, you might want to hold off on that. 3 and a half years might become a death sentence if you have an operation in prison.

  • sAIGON

    He pussy he know niggas is ready to get at him. Saigon is pretty much an OG of them newyork prisons. That nigga saigon said prodigy cant go to the joint with out protective custody just cause he said. I belive him pordigy is scared man! So now he trying to get in some health condition prison.

  • niggafrommemphis

    Prodigy,like i will always say,is a bitch.Why you mobb deep lovers refuse to accept the truth is beyond me.Look at the facts:He ain’t goin to Rikers,he goin upstate where they have facilities for his condition.Then he was just doing an interview sayin that he just want to do his time and get it over with.Now don’t get me wrong,unless your just too institutionalized,nobody wants to go to jail.But as much shit this muthafucka be sayin,not to mention that stuff on God,I know it’s some niggas that will question his ass on that once he up there,you would “think” this nigga goin be airight.Well,the boy is a ho,plain and simple.Yall can like that nigga all you want,but if u refuse to accept the facts,yall some hos’ too,probably more so than his mark ass!

    • yyyahhhh bbiiitchhh yaaahh

      True dat, that nigga is hoe. He scared to go to pin, plain and simple. mobb deep are shook ones, them niggas are pussy!

  • Chaka

    Some of you out there,most especially that brother niggafrommemphis,dont know a thing about sickle cell.If you have lived around people with this disease you will understand that they experience their crisis almost all the time.P is a fighter thats why he has stayed this long.You can dislike P for some other reasons but it will be foul and inhuman of you to criticize him because of his illness and present health condition.Niggafrommemphis no matter what P has said about God(Which to me is wrong),let God be the judge.It is wrong for you to stand between P and his God and fight for God.God can handle His own business.What God requires from you is for you to pray for P.Charity is one of the greatest gift God infuses on we human.If you truly love God like you think then show other humans(this would include P)love.Like the Master said thats the second greatest commandment.peace an hip hop head in Africa wrote this.

  • niggafrommemphis@chaka zulu

    I got to roast you now.First bitch,you don’t know me,I don’t need to go thru any details with you on what I “personally”know about sickle cell disease either,so you can SHUT THE FUCK UP AND SUCK A RHINOSAURS DICK!Yo dumb ass probably came over here and call yourself gettin an education and now you got the nerve to fuck with a real nigga,somethin your bug infested ass know nothin about.Get your head out your ass man,or ho.

    • Chaka

      “your bug infested ass”,whats that suppose to mean?I guess you think your brothers out here are living in huts and pest infested environments.You are probably one of those people who believe all those sick videos about Africa they are showing you on CNN.Damn,you are one ignorant and shallow brother.Ask those out there who have been to places like Lagos,Abuja,Accra,Dakar,Jburg,Niarobi,Cairo,e.t.c;and they will tell your uneducated ass that Africa is one developed place.Jay z,Busta,Snoop,Beyonce,DMX,Wyclef,50 cent,Joe,Guru,Talib,Ludacris,Treach,Foxy,KCi and Jojo and many other artists from America,who have been here,can testify to this.They were shocked to witness our level of development out here.They discovered that they have been lied to by the media out there.Thats the strategy of some white organizations,always painting a sick image of we Africans.And you are a dumb fool for believing that as a blackman.I dont even know why m wasting my time on your sorry ass.Go take a bleach,sell out nigga.Peace

  • flyboy403

    damn dude really is sick.
    he’s gonna die in there.
    saigon could’ve killed dude he’s lucky he only knocked him out.

  • latino heat

    when ya’ll hear the song i’m talking about from my earlier comment you’ll know that P dosen’t hate god or jesus. the song is about how he’s a god fearing man just like the rest of us. the line from that other song was taken out of context i think and people really need to let go of the whole “P hates god” thing.

    This domain seems to get a good ammount of visitors. How do you promote it? It gives a nice individual spin on things. I guess having something real or substantial to say is the most important thing.

    I gotta say, while looking through hundreds of blogs each week, the theme of this blog is different (for all the appropriate reasons). If you don’t mind me asking, what’s the name of this theme or could it be a tailor made affair? It’s better compared to themes I personally use for some of my blogs ;-)

    Can you tell me the name of this design, or is it a special theme affair? The reason I ask is that When I look at your RSS feed it seems to be just a lot of messed up text. Is the problem with your site, or mine? Could it be browser related? Anybody else having this same problem?

    I have got 1 suggestion for your webpage. It seems like there are a couple of cascading stylesheet problems while launching a selection of web pages in google chrome as well as opera. It is operating alright in internet explorer. Perhaps you can double check this.
