Following the sad news that New York rap pioneer Prodigy of Mobb Deep passed away on Tuesday, we were reminded of the rappers prison cookery book which got published last year.
The focus of the book was keeping healthy behind bars. Prodigy served three years in prison for illegal possession of a firearm, starting in 2008. He kept a record of the meals he was making and published them in the book – half recipe book, half personal account of life inside.
Around the time of the release, Genius hosted a series of snippets from the audiobook version, read by Prodigy himself.
