I usually stay away from autobiographies written by rap figures, because in the macho world of rap, there's a high chance of making themselves look like Superman and/or constantly altering supposedly true events. In this book, Prodigy is brutally honest -- I would say SHOCKINGLY honest at times about himself and others and it is a wonder how some of his friends that he mentions even agreed to let him include some of things written about them. THAT is the charm of this book.
My Infamous Life is a highly detailed account of Prodigy's life who wrote it while serving three years in prison on a gun charge. Starting from birth and health complications that began shortly thereafter, P introduces us to many of his family members and childhood friends and his exploits with them.Read more ›
So the book is about his life from the beginning up to what's been going on with him during the last few years. It's insightful on many levels.
I laughed a lot while reading it but that's from me being desensitized to many things rather than the author trying to be funny.
The only problem with this book is that for me I read a few key things that were a bit questionable and Prodigy has a thing for green eyes. But other than that, worth every penny for any Mobb Deep fan.
