We have a lot to tell you about rapper Prodigy of legendary hip and/or hop combo Mobb Deep. So get comfortable:
- On the technology front: Prodigy's new album, H.N.I.C. Part 2, will be coming out in March. Using "Voxonic Technology," the raps will be translated in 1,400 languages. We think Voxonix voice conversion technology comes from reverse-engineered alien spacecraft or something. Visit the official site and check it out.
- Sadly, on February 13th, Prodigy will begin serving a three-and-a-half year prison sentence for weapons charges. But the rapper/writer/genius doesn't plan on sitting around feeling sorry for himself: "While I'm locked up, I'm going to be writing lyrics, working on the script for my second feature film, Dope, and finish writing an autobiography of my life which will be finished by the time I'm released. My mind is going to be focused and I'll have time to think and map out my entire plan," Prodigy said. We'll be talking to the rapper about his charges, prison sentence and New York's hip-hop cops on the 13th, so check back for the exclusive video.
- Before his stint in the stoney lonesome, Prodigy hooked us up with some off-the-top lyrics! He'll be appearing on G4's own Freestyle 101 on February 19th. Don't miss it; it's musical history made before your eyes.
