Prodigy went from cooking in the booth to cooking behind bars. After Prodigy was sentenced back in 2007 for illegal possession of a firearm he had to maintain a healthier lifestyle than most, even if it meant skipping a prison meal or two. Due to his sickle cell anemia, P was forced to cook for himself instead of relying on the prison food, which led to the creation and release of his cook book Commissary Kitchen: My Infamous Prison Cookbook in 2011.In the book he gives you a little bit of his prison experiences and food recipes. He shows you how to survive a system designed to wear men and women down from the inside out. “This book won’t make you a better cook, but it might make you a better person,” the “Shook Ones” rapper writes in the books introduction. From making dumplings out of soggy elbow macaroni to ketchup soaked sangria; as we celebrate Prodigy’s 43rd Birthday lets check out some of his best recipes from his cook book.

P’s clean hands Sweet Potato Pie

Using crushed graham crackers and melted butter packets for the crust, Prodigy then takes some yams along with juice from the can for the base and mixes everything altogether with sugar and honey. After heating up the filling in the microwave he then spreads the yams over the crust toasting everything for about 25 minutes.

P’s Prison Potstickers

For this creative meal all you’ll need is macaroni pasta, canned vegetables, hot sauce and soy sauce. Boiling the macaroni until it turns to mush, P begins to make little balls with his palm, using his thumbs to flatten them, creating small dumpling pockets. Filling them with the canned vegetables, hot sauce and soy sauce he brushes them with butter leaving it to toast for about 3 minutes.

P’s Prison Sangria

After you gathered a good amount of fruits, the rapper suggests putting it in a sealable bag, ‘mashing it together until it looks f***ing disgusting.’ Afterwards let it sit in a bowl of microwaved hot water, then wrap the bag in a t-shirt and find a place to stash it.

“After a few days, the bag should start blowing up, which means gas is in there and it’s becoming liquor. Open the bag a little and add some ketchup and a ton of sugar.”
‘P’s Prison Surprise’

“A lot of people f**k with Prison Surprise”, Prodigy writes. “I’m not one of those people but if you wanna be stupid enough to try it, I have the recipe for you.”

Prodigy Mural Defaced A Second Time

The massive mural street artists Jeff Henriquez and Eli “Eli Eos” Lazare painted in honor of the late Mobb Deep MC Prodigy was destroyed by vandals over the weekend, just hours after it was unveiled. Henriquez and Lazare worked diligently to repair it and after 15 hours of work, revealed the finished product (again). But it didn’t last.

The mural, which is located on 13th Street and 40th Avenue in New York City, has been defaced once again, this time with a giant splash of red paint littered across the Queensbridge Hip Hop legend’s face and right arm.

Prodigy Was Reportedly Working On A Jail Cookbook & A Musical About The Illuminati Before His Death

“Illuminati want my mind, soul and my body,” rapped Prodigy on the 1995 LL Cool J song “I Shot Ya (Remix).”

After the news broke of Prodigy’s passing, Kathy Iandoli – the co-author of the emcee’s Commissary Kitchen spoke to Complex about what the Queens native was working on next.

“The one thing we were planning on doing was a musical about the Illuminati and how the obsession with the Illuminati infiltrated people’s opinions of Hip Hop,” said Iandoli.

She added, “We were initially going to do an interactive type of musical with a company that runs The Illuminati Ball, but then we decided to take our idea to an off-Broadway situation. Tell a story with a very specific beginning, middle, and end. But [the story] began with prison; it was semi-autobiographical.”
