Prodigy of Mobb Deep Announces Cookbook & Follow-Up Memoir

Mobb Deep rapper Prodigy announced today the release of two books in 2016. Writer, author and all-around badass (because she’s awesome and also happens to be my mentor), Kathy Iandoli, will be collaborating with him to help write them. Commissary Kitchen will be part cookbook, part anecdotal storybook, and it will detail Prodigy’s prison experience through his meals. Some of the recipes will be classic prison offerings, while others will serve as the catalyst for greater stories throughout his three years prison term. In The State vs Albert “Prodigy” Johnson, the rapper will chronicle the overall prison experience, the challenges of life after prison and the effects that the prison term has had on his personal life and career. Prodigy and Iandoli will also dissect the dichotomy of what happens when a public figure enters and exits the prison system. The two books are slated for release in the second half of 2016.
