I’ve been sending him beats.Havoc is sending him beats. I e-mail them to his wife, and she puts it on some type of cassette. It’s like he’s in the studio, he’s just not recording.” (MTV)

“Prodigy is chilling, yeah, you know he’s got the ‘Phone Tap’ song out, he’s still doing his thing behind bars,” Hav said in an interview. “That’s classic P. He’ll always find a way to make himself vocal, even if he’s behind bars. But he’s chilling, maintaining, he’s ready to come out and get to work. He’s got a book in the making, so it’s just crazy. I talk to him, like, a few times a month and I go see him every few months so we’re in pretty good contact. That’s my brother.” (Vlad TV)
