Acclaimed rapper Prodigy (one-half of Mobb Deep) is freshly out of prison and
on tour with his new autobiography, My Infamous Life. He's stopping by the
PowerHouse Arena in Brooklyn, NY for a signing and talk with Touré, host of "The HipHop Show" on Fuse.
In My Infamous Life: The Autobiography of Mobb Deep's Prodigy, Prodigy speaks for the first time about growing up in his illustrious family and his parents' tragic end, his struggles with drugs, and his life-long battle with sickle-cell anemia and unremitting hospitalizations (he's a Sickle Cell Anemia Foundation national advocate with 'The No Pain Campaign').
Through Prodigy's eyes we watch the birth of today's most influential musical
genres and subcultures—an unblinking account of his wild life with Mobb Deep, who alongside New York rappers Nas, The Notorious B.I.G., Tupac, Jay-Z, and the Wu-Tang Clan, changed the musical landscape with their unapologetic street stories. Jay-Z recently said, "Prodigy at one time was one of the best rappers in the game...he was close to being the best rapper in the game" while promoting his book Decoded. My Infamous Life also provides the inside scoop about the dark side of the entertainment business, the back stories on legendary rap beefs and the East Coast vs. West Coast war, the intimate details about record labels, and encounters with several very recognizable women.
