Miami Beach Music Venue Miami LIVE Host Prodigy of Mobb Deeps…
I am ready to get on the road to promote my new book Commissary Kitchen: My Infamous Prison Cookbook
Coast 2 Coast Mixtapes announces the “Commissary Kitchen Tour: Miami Edition” featuring Prodigy of Mobb Deep. This concert and book signing event will take place on October 19, 2016 at Miami Live, the brand new Live Music Venue in Miami Beach. Located at 912 71st St. Miami Beach, FL 33141, Miami Live is centrally located and accessible to all artists and music lover’s throughout the South Florida region.
It’s been a quiet yet productive five years for Prodigy, since his release from prison in 2011 stemming from charges related to criminal possession of a weapon. Coming from a musical family, he was propelled to awareness partially by fellow rapper Nas, as well as with the aid of a successful single, “Shook Ones Pt. 2,” Mobb Deep released The Infamous in 1995 and sold over 500,000 within the first two months. A year and a half later, at the end of 1996, Prodigy and Havoc released Hell on Earth, which debuted at number six on SoundScan the album was composed with both evocative beats and cinematic rhymes that communicated the dark side of New York’s urban landscape.
Fast Forward Twenty Years, one-half of one of the greatest Hip Hop duo’s of all time is releasing a unique memoir titled Commissary Kitchen: My Infamous Prison Cookbook, an anecdotal revision of his many days in a cell.
The basis of the book is to offer up healthy alternatives to commonplace dishes and HipHopDX is exclusively revealing that a tour — accompanied with live performances – is on the horizon.
“I am ready to get on the road to promote my new book Commissary Kitchen: My Infamous Prison Cookbook,” an excited Prodigy tells HipHopDX.
“This project is very important to me because it chronicles my experiences plus the challenges I faced while I was locked up, particularly with my health. I have sickle cell and food plays a big role in my life. I have to eat well to be well. At the same time, the book talks about other things and other people that I dealt with while I was in jail. It was fun to put together. I even recorded an audio version. People seem to dig it. I will also be performing in every market after bookstore signings, so it’s gonna be cool.”
Aside from the eight albums P-Dolo released with his longtime partner Havoc underneath the Mobb Deep umbrella, he also has seven full-length solo projects so they will be plenty of material fans can soak up during said market performances.
Prodigy, 41, co-authored the book with acclaimed journalist (and HipHopDX alum) Kathy Iandoli, who also explained how the book could increase the livelihood of those who have no association to incarceration whatsoever.
“Besides discussing several aspects of human interest within the prison system, Commissary Kitchen shows that meals—no matter how simplistic they can be—bring people together, keep people alive and healthy, and show how inmates deserve just as much access to nutrition and quality food as those of us in the outside world,” she relayed to DX.
“This book tour will bring Prodigy’s message, as those living in dorms, have family who is currently serving time, and those living on a budget can all benefit from the meals as well as the stories within this cookbook-slash-memoir.”
Commissary Kitchen: My Infamous Prison Cookbook can be found at Barnes & Nobles, Target and wherever else fine books are sold.
The tour kicks off on October 1 at Barclays Center. Check out the official tour schedule via the official tour flyer.
