Synopsis

Free bonus music, including three neverbeforereleased singles, exclusive with the audiobook! In this often violent but always introspective memoir, Mobb Deeps Prodigy tells his muchanticipated story of struggle, survival, and hope on the mean streets of New York City. 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 sicklecell anemia, and much more. Recently released after serving three and a half years in state prison, Prodigy is ready to talk about his life as one of raps greatest legends. My Infamous Life is an unblinking account of Prodigys wild times with Mobb Deep, who alongside rappers like Nas, the Notorious B.I.G., Tupac, JayZ, and the WuTang Clan, changed the musical landscape with their vivid portrayals of early 90s street life. It is a firsthand chronicle of legendary rap feuds like the East CoastWest Coast rivalry. Taking listeners behind the smokeandmirrors glamour of the hiphop world, Prodigy lays down the truth about the intoxicating power of money, the meaning of true friendship, and the ultimately redemptive power of self. This is the heartbreaking journey of a child born in privilege, his youth spent among music royalty like Diana Ross and Dizzie Gillespie, and educated in private schools, until a family tragedy changed everything. Raised in the mayhem of the Queensbridge projects, Prodigy rose to dizzying heights of fame and eventually fell into the darkness of a prison cell. A truly candid memoir, part fearless confessional and part ode to the concrete jungles of New York City, My Infamous Life is written by a man who was on the front line of the last great moment in hiphop history and who is still fighting to achieve his very own American Dream. Music score by the The Alchemist and Twizz the Beat Pro
