Prodigy Explains Why Three-Year Jail Sentence "Wasn't A Bad Thing"

Prodigy says that his three-year bid helped him become a better person.

Prodigy’s three-year prison sentence was more of a blessing than a curse. During an interview with Good*Fella Media, the Mobb Deep member explained that his sentencing came at the right moment in his life where his actions and behavior were out of control.

“I was a fucked up individual going into jail. I was trying to change my ways and do certain things the right way, but I had like one foot in heaven and the other foot in hell. It don’t work like that, you gotta choose a side. You can’t be straddling the fence. You’ve got to choose a side, what side do you want to be on? I had to learn that. I was fucked up, doing just foul shit. I didn’t give a fuck too much,” he said. “The shit I went through in my life made me a fucked up individual. I did foul shit that I would never do now. I look back and I’m like, damn, that was foul.”

P explains that his desire for materialistic things like jewelry and money drove him to act reckless. But he says that his time in prison changed him for the better and that his time in the clink “wasn’t a bad thing.”

Just not caring, not giving a fuck, being selfish, just after the money and fame and jewelry and bitches and just wilin’ and reputation. Just all the wrong shit. I’m so glad I got locked up, because if I didn’t get locked up, I’d either be dead or locked up for life. Anything. Something bad would have happened. It wasn’t a bad thing for me to get locked up for three years. A slap on the wrist, go sit down nigga, you fucked up. If I didn’t get locked up, something really bad would have happened.

OK, P-You have got to be the dumbest dummy in the world! How do you spin going to jail was a good thing? How about, changing yourself so you don't have to go to jail. This ain't monopoly homie, Jail is REAL. Not just for 1 turn.

    I can understand the man wants to change his shitty attitude. However going to place where it ain't nothing but the fellas and if you drop the soap your manhood is in jepoardy is not the place to be. Then again seeing as he has been to prison before sounds to me like he enjoys being in that type of enviroment. Sad to say. Hopefully he changes. However I don't see it happening due to his negative upbringing and lack thereof a positive figure. What type of father teaches their son how to shoot a gun at a young age and only for negative purposes.

    I didn't read the article. That being said, I assume his sentence "wasn't a bad thing" because he got to experience untamed, endless penetration. Enjoy your AIDS!

      Your Homeboy is an idiot, if he repaired his credit WTF would he buy a condo when a home which has no HOA fees can be purchased at 3.25% for 30. Condo's are a bad investment all the way around, nobody wants to pay like $900 for mortage and some gay $350 HOA fees...A condo is a glorified apartment. You don't own shit.
