Prodigy's Jailhouse Cookbook Banned From All California State Prisons

By Daryl Nelson

Prodigy of Mobb Deep released two books this year under his publishing company Infamous Books, but one of them has been banned in all California State prisons.

According to TMZ, officials sent a letter to the rapper and said his Commissary Kitchen: My Infamous Prison Cookbook explains how to make wine, which isn't allowed behind bars.

The HNIC spitter stopped by the gossip show to talk about the cookbook, as well as his favorite recipes in it.

You can see that interview below and read the letter from California State prison officials -- which Prodigy calls "great news" because of the publicity it's getting his book.

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. S/o to @kath3000 and @buck50prod #InfamousBooks #InfamousRecords #HegelianDialectic Jan. 2017
