[With Prodigy fresh out of jail and currently on a book tour for his My Infamous Life autobiography, one half of Mobb Deep speaks on the road trip and its diverse turnout.]
I'm definitely still the same P but now I'm more mature. Mentally. I really feel like I have my priorities in order now. I'm really trying to do the right thing and this is like my second chance in life at really getting it right. It's really like my third, fourth chance. I've had a lot of ups and downs and was given a lot of chances so I feel like this is my last one. I feel like nothing good is going to come out of me f*cking up again.
My whole plan was to really get it together and try to do good things in life. So that's what I planned on doing when I went into jail. I wanted to transform myself into a better personal. Mentally, physically and spiritually. That's what I feel like I've did.
Last week was my biggest book reading but I've done a lot of phoners and other types of interviews before then. But the [powerHouse Brooklyn] reading was a packed turnout and really kicked off this whole book tour that I'm on right now.
I definitely saw a lot of different people in the audience. There was different cultures, different races, different age groups and all that. I definitely seen that during the reading. But throughout the years, since Mobb Deep's been making music, I've seen that a lot. Our audience has really been out at our shows and even walking in the streets I've been surprised. Once a 60 year-old lady would scream out from across the street, "Prodigy! I love Mobb Deep!"
I've had a few surprises out in the streets. I've seen some crazy sh*t and just been like, "Wow, this person is really a Mobb Deep fan? That's crazy right there."
Prodigy is a member of Mobb Deep and renowned hip-hop artist. Known for making music alongside producer/rapper Havoc, the duo have put out multiple albums since the early 1990's and spent time on record labels including 4th & B'way, Loud and G-Unit. After serving a three-year jail sentence, P was released in March 2011 and has actively promoted his new autobiography, My Infamous Life.
