He carried Uzis, he sniffed coke, loved getting high and drunk, and got into lots of fights. Reading this autobiography, is like reading or watching a prequel to your favorite movie. But like a true thug, Prodigy was ready to jump it off at anytime, in the streets or right before he went on stage to perform. I was a big Mobb Deep fan so when I heard that Prodigy died recently, I checked this out. Always been a fan of his Muzik until this day. Hearing Prodigy tell his story made you feel like you were right there through it all. He has been arrested before, and has robbed people for money.
In the months prior to getting locked up, the rapper had begun collaborating with Checkoway, then a freelance journalist, on a book about his life. The main character of my story is one of the greatest rapper's to ever and his name is Prodigy. The blowback eventually died down. I spent most of the time on the edge of my seat waiting for the next thing to happen. I expected a tale of a man who mad The book I am reviewing is called ¨My Infamous Life¨ This book attracted me because I am a huge fan of rap music, and he is a rapper. Anticipating prison time and scrambling to make music to leave behind, Prodigy became increasingly hard to pin down. It's not a great book and he could have used some much tighter editing.
He brings us a close insight of his aspect of the media made war of the east coast vs west coast drama that had taken the lives of Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls. I was looking forward to reading this book by Prodigy but honestly I was very underwhelmed and had to force myself to finish it. When the bodies were dropping, nothing was mentioned. This book is definately my favorite book I have ever read. Buy it and read it. When I was finished, that was basically when it was the time to put it out. The main character of my story is one of the greatest rapper's to ever and his name is Prodigy.
Havoc is often as nondescript as he is competent. Taking readers behind the smoke-and-mirrors glamour of the hip hop world, Prodigy lays down the unsparing truth about the intoxicating power of fame and fortune, his brutal climb to the top, and his unexpected detour to prison in this raw and utterly-sometimes unnervingly-frank memoir. Not only that, but Prodigy got praise from Jay-Z, Lil Wayne, and Nas. Pac called his bluff out back in the 90s. The main character is Prodigy. He said stay away because Bags was about to be hit. I am by no means a fan of rap music but what I do love is autobiographies read by their authors.
After the group caught the ear of music execs, they were signed to a major label and eventually recorded their album The Infamous, now considered a hip hop classic. I honestly dont have anything against Prodigy but I think that Havoc had a better childhood in my opinion and he is also a better rapper than Prodigy, even though I love them both. But it was a very slow process for him when it came to maturity. Some think the reason Tupac got shot was because Preme got put back in jail on a violation. Catapulted from the Queensbridge Projects to the heights of fame at age sixteen, Prodigy toured the world while struggling with drugs, violent crime, and a disease he would spend a lifetime fighting. The nigga e money bags was a real bonified gansgta foreal.
There were many in this memoir and that was refreshing and fascinating. I never heard his music, but I wanted to learn more about him, especially after seeing all of the things he went through on the back of the book. In this paper I will be telling you all about the hard life that Prodigy and Havoc had to go through to get to where they are at now and it all starts now. Black Just had held Supreme down through thick and thin and now he was dead by a bullet meant for Supreme. The faults of the book is in some cases the most entertaining parts. My Infamous life by Prodigy Prodigy was an inspiration to me his words very powerful and uplifting and letting us know he is human just like us he has u drawn into his life story I could feel his pain and struggle and found out details the media never showed us and he will be truly missed.
Most of the time when we do, we get a watered down marked up version of the truth, made to look good and boost revenue. Losing P was a tremendous loss to Hip-Hop, his community, and myself personally. On April 19, 2011, just over a month after Prodigy came home from prison, My Infamous Life was released. He was allways battling for what he believed in and what his friends believed in. The book is perfect so far. There was also the matter of the many detailed first-person accounts of criminal activity, both by Prodigy and people he names in the book. This is the heartbreaking journey of a child born in privilege, his youth spent among music royalty like Diana Ross and Dizzy Gillespie, educated in private schools, until a family tragedy changed everything.
For the first time, he gives an intimate look at his family background, his battles with drugs, his life of crime, his relentless suffering with sickle-cell anemia, and much more. And it took a three-year prison bid for it all to come to fruition. He talked with rolling out about working on the book as well as clearing up some issues with previous rap feuds. It was during one of those hospital stays that Prodigy first started writing out his life story. Johnson gives us the up's and down's of his life, the mistakes in which he has made and how those mistakes have affected his perception on Life.
Supreme has a long gangster resume. This from a person who could've had the world at its feet, still ended up doing foolish things. Overall it was just a dope read. This is the heartbreaking journey of a child born in privilege, his youth spent among music royalty like Diana Ross and Dizzy Gillespie, educated in private schools, until a family tragedy changed everything. Taking the reader behind the smoke-and-mirrors glamour of the hip hop world, so often seen as the only way out for those with few options, Prodigy lays down the truth about the intoxicating power of money, the meaning of true friendship and loyalty, and the ultimately redemptive power of self. Green Eyed Born was an O. I recommend this book to all rap and hip-hop fans.
