Mobb Deep - Jailed Rapper Prodigy Given March Release Date
Mobb Deep rapper Prodigy will officially walk free from prison in March (11) after serving time for illegal weapons possession.
The hip-hop star was sentenced to three-and-a-half years behind bars in October 2007 after he was found with a .22 calibre pistol on his person following a 2006 arrest in New York.
Reports suggested Prodigy would be released in February (11) - but his Mobb Deep bandmate Havoc reveals they will be reunited a month later than expected.
During an appearance on Shade 45 radio on Thursday (20Jan11), Havoc told listeners his pal will regain his freedom on 7 March (11), when officials release him from the Mid-State Correctional Facility in New Jersey.
Prodigy has been keeping busy while serving time - he has started work on an autobiography.
