Prodigy of Mobb Deep embarks on a book tour to promote his upcoming book “Commissary Kitchen: My Infamous Prison Cookbook.”
The book is a collection of recipes created by the inmates with the few poor ingredients available at the Commissary, along with the stories and anecdotes that inspired them. While talking about food, Prodigy is giving the readers a look inside the prison facility, and describes some of the characters that populate it.
Prodigy, who suffers with sickle cell anemia, decided to write Commissary Kitchen upon his return from jail. During the term, he lived in first person the many challenges that inmates have to face in an attempt to conduct a healthy life style in prison, especially when living with a chronic and deadly disease like sickle cell. He realized what an enormous role food plays in his life.
During the month of October, in addition to meeting him at bookstores, fans can attend Prodigy’s performances in almost every market that will host a book signing.
