Prodigy Plans Book Tour Upon Jail Release

Prodigy doesn’t plan on wasting any time once he is freed from prison on Monday, March 7. Along with reuniting with his Mobb Deep partner, Havoc, in the studio, to work on a new group LP, the Queens-bred MC will be releasing his memoir, My Infamous Life: The Autobiography of Mobb Deep’s Prodigy, on April 19. In celebration of the tome hitting shelves, P will be embarking on a 10-date book tour throughout the East Coast.

Starting on Thursday, April 21 at New York University, P will continue to make stops at Yale, Morgan State University, Howard University and several Barnes and Noble locations, where he will read excerpts and sign copies of his book.

My Infamous Life: The Autobiography of Mobb Deep’s Prodigy will chronicle the rap vet’s life in the music business as well as his struggle with drugs and sickle-cell anemia. Fans can pre-order copies now on amazon.com.—Elan Mancini
