Prodigy Bids Farewell, G-Unit Hosts Sendoff Concert In NYC
Dubbed the "All Star QB + G-Unit Tribute to Prodigy," the party will feature P performing his latest solo release, H.N.I.C. 2, in its entirety. Unnamed special guests are also scheduled to appear.
Prodigy (born Albert Johnson) is preparing to do a three-and-a-half-year bid for weapons charges after being caught with a loaded, unregistered .22-caliber gun in his $150,000 bulletproof SUV in 2006.
He was originally scheduled to report to prison in January, but was granted a five-week extension, reportedly to give his doctors time to assemble his medical records in light of the fact that he suffers from sickle cell disease.
Although Prodigy is not yet behind bars, he shot the video for "Real Power Is People" from a jail cell at the Queens House of Detention.
The rapper's all-ages sendoff show begins at 9 p.m. Tickets are $20.
