Incarcerated rapper Prodigy has announced plans to ink an autobiography and said the book would be released on the same day he is let out of jail.
Writing via a blog entry, P explained what fans could expect from the forthcoming project.
"I HAVE AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY COMING OUT THE SAME TIME THAT I GET OUT AND I DECIDED TO SAVE MY BEST KNOWLEDGE AND INFORMATION FOR MY BOOK," he promised. "IF I LET IT ALL LOOSE IN THESE BLOGS THEN IT WOULD LEAVE LITTLE TO NOTHING FOR MY BOOK TO REVEAL...I CAN GUARANTEE THAT MY AUTOBIOGRAPHY WILL BE RELEVENT 100 YEARS FROM NOW CAUSE ITS NOT SOME BULLSH*T WRITTEN JUST TO SOUND GOOD. PEOPLE WILL LEARN FROM MY BOOK AND CAN EVEN SHARE THE INFORMATION WITH THEIR CHILDREN. WHEN YOU ARE DEALING WITH THE SOUL AND WELL BEING OF YOU AND YOUR CHILDREN, YOU BETTER BELIEVE YOU GOTTA DEAL WITH REALITY AND PURE, GOOD, CLEAN INFORMATION THAT IS ACCURATE." (Wooha)
The rapper will follow suit as Q-Tip prepares his own book.
Q-Tip has signed on the dotted line with Ballantine Books for an unexpected memoir. Titled Industry Rules, Q-Tip is expected to carefully construct his life story that includes growing up in Queens, his rise and fall with A Tribe Called Quest and subsequent solo success thereafter. The book, also in cooperation Random House Publishing Group, which owns Ballatine Books, was sold recently and according to a release is "a creatively constructed telling of his life story".

Rappers like Ghostface Killah, Styles P and Jay-Z have ventured into the book industry.
"Yeah, the other two books though, you know I had to sign that deal," Jay-Z confirmed in an interview last week. "I've done the deal to do a book and the name of it is called Decoded. It's called Decoded because I'm going to decode all the lyrics from my records. I'm gonna pick the select ones, all the double entendres and things that people may have missed or may have gotten but want confirmation on it. That's what the book is about, it's called Decoded."

Mobb Deep associate Nyce recently said Prodigy could be home sooner than expected due to 50 Cent.
"Shout-out to Fif because that's why I love him so much," he said in an interview. "A lot of people think that Fif is such a bad guy, he a bad guy because he hates you. He's a real good dude and right now he's trying to get P out a little bit earlier like December, January. And I'm really thankful for that 'cause P is the chain that keeps the bike moving. So I definitely respect him for that. I grew up with Fif, [Lloyd] Banks and [Tony] Yayo." (Forbez DVD)
No further information on the autobiography has been released as of today (July 20).
