Prodigy is expanding his resume with the launch of Infamous, a book-publishing imprint. Partnering with indie press Akashic Books, the Queens rapper looks to publish urban and crime literature starting with the release of the his own 90-page work H.N.I.C, co-written by Steven Savile.
The Mobb Deep MC, whose latest LP Albert Einstein with Alchemist dropped earlier this summer, says that he approaches writing books differently than that of his music. “Most of my music comes from my real life. So writing a fictional book is different. Because I’m just able to use my imagination more and just create scenarios. I really don’t do that too much with the music,” Prodigy explained in an interview with Brooklyn Based.
Infamous Books will boast names like the New York Times best-selling author JaQavis Coleman and others. Watch Prodigy talk about his forthcoming novel below.
