Prodigy & Alchemist Collaborate On Exclusive Tape For Inmates

Rapper/producer Alchemist and Mobb Deep's Prodigy will release an instrumental tape that'll be available for New York state inmates through Send A Package.

Alchemist and Prodigy are teaming up for a release on Send A Package, a service that provides care packages to inmates in the New York state prison system. Their collaboration will be an instrumental release, which Mobb Deep’s Prodigy sees as a great offering for inmates who rhyme.

“I hated rhyming over other people's beats,” Prodigy said in a statement, using his own experience in prison to serve as foundation for his opinion. “I think this is a good thing that Send A Package is doing.”

No official release date has been provided but the tape will be released at some point in the summer.

Prodigy and Alchemist have worked together for years. The duo linked up for various projects including Alchemist's 1st InfantryProdigy's H.N.I.C. and Return of the Mac. Prodigy has co-produced several records including songs on The Infamous and Juvenile Hell. Al and P are currently working on a separate project, Albert Einstein, which is reportedly unrelated to this Send A Package release.

Send A Package recently signed a deal with Universal Records to release Hip Hop LPs in cassette tape form. As we reported when the deal was made earlier this year, Universal can release tape versions of albums by various emcees including discs by Notorious B.I.G. and Jay-Z.

    gay midget and OVERRATED hollywood jew go to prison together, wow... ok to ride Al's dick for work done in the past but the idiots pretending every piece of shit he throws out there now (which is A LOT) 'bangs' are fucking delusions, or have zero taste.

      while al is dope, i'll agree, he's as good as he's always been but people seem to be really hyped now for some reason. but its true, not everything he does bangs, he's not super consistent. even premo is a bit over hyped in that respect.

      I agree. Alchemist is a bit overrated for sure. He has some nice beats here and there but not everything is nice tho.
