Prodigy‘s inmate cuisine cookbook, “Commissary Kitchen”: My Infamous Prison Cookbook,” written alongside writer Kathy Iandoli, garnered quite a bit of attention when it was released earlier this fall. Yesterday (Dec. 22), Rapper P took to his Instagram and posted a letter from California officials banning his book from state jails reportedly because of a recipe for moonshine.
“My new book #CommissaryKitchen My Infamous Prison Cookbook Just got banned from every prison in the state of California cause of my hooch recipe. For those who dont know, hooch is homemade alcohol. This is great news for me,” wrote Prodigy in a captioned photo of the letter from the California Division of Adult Institutions.
Controversy sells, and Prodigy is jumping on the free press as any smart businessperson should. He appeared as a guest on TMZ Live yesterday explaining the news of the ban and some of his favorite jailhouse meals. Fans might remember that Prodigy served three and a half years in prison on a 2007 gun charge
