MediaTakeOut.com has learned that Mobb Deep rapper Prodigy has pleaded guilty to a weapons charge and been sentenced to three-and-a-half years behind bars.
The G-Unit rapper, whose real name is Albert Johnson -- was indicted on one charge of gun possession at Manhattan Supreme Court in New York on Tuesday.
The charge relates to Johnson's arrest last October, when New York cops pulled him over for making an illegal u-turn. A search of the car turned up an unlicensed .22-caliber pistol.
The 32-year-old initially claimed he didn't own the weapon, which was found in the compartment between his driver's seat and the front passenger seat, where hip-hop producer The Alchemist was sitting.
But midway through trial proceedings, Prodigy confessed to ownership of the gun and struck a deal with prosecutors. The agreement limited his jail term to just three-and-a-half years instead of the 15 years Prodigy, who faced his third gun charge, would likely receive.
These entertainers sure are dumb *** hell. Leave that "ghetto" mentality alone
HES A SMALL DUDE. I HOPE HES GOT PULL IN THERE OR ELSE HE'S GONNA BE FREQUENTING THE SALAD BAR.LOL
DAYUM! DAYYUMMM!!! DAYUUUMMMMM!!!!
He's all sickly and little too...
They probably wont keep him in general population...
I have to say one thing I always supported them cause when they first came out I was excited to hear someone my age telling how it is in the hood but it get to a point everyone has to grow up. Give me a little of what they have you would never see me in the hood unless it is to support some needy children in the neighborhood. Hold your head up baby bro. Peace Brooklyn forever!
HE NEED TO BE THROWN IN JAIL FOR THEM WACK AZZ RHYMES HE BE SAYIN
I heard this yesterday! Next!
hold your head brother will always be a fan
just do what you gotta do
This is upsetting because Prodigy is one of the best rappers from New York. He never stepped his game up still spittin' gun talk. That's what has made a lot of New York rap very boring as of late. Known for the most exquisite lyricism and wordplay, New York rappers got more to offer than talking about robbing and *** nayas. The Jay Z diss was detrimental but they survived that. The True Life ordeal was a motherfreakin' tko for them nayas. Nas had to raise up out of just talking about the streets. Albert should have been described life in other parts of the world in his rhymes or at least express the desirability of living in Queensbridge.
rappers getting busted on illegal gun charges is so common its not even news anymore. lol. this will be the begining of the too common decent into hell for yet another rapper.

There is something wrong with this his mind.
" I brake legs,ribs,$100 bills tour the album only for more sales...."
I remember first hearing those lyrics and wondering whose legs and ribs is this little man breaking. Oh well.
I heard he was about 3 feet tall. is that true?
OH WELL!! ANOTHER..GOING DOWN! I HOPE THAT HE IS WELL TAKEN CARE OF IN THERE...BEING AS THOUGH HE IS SICK WITH SICKLE CELL.
Thug my azz sit down I live in the hood and these cats are not playing. Grow Up for you find your azz dead these cats are not fighting no more check the local papers in the hood.
He is way old to be running around like that he need to worry about having a family and his health thats more important than some street ***.
All these so call hard thugs are really *** azz *** in drag for real! Where I'm from so much crime been jumping off and all you see is crying faces on the front page of the newspaper!
THATS BAD....HOPE HE GET THROUGH IT ALRIGHT.
Now all that tough guy talk is gonna be put to the test. When he used to be "Da P" maybe he had a chance. Now that he's with G-Unit and has become V.I.P. he is gonna get tested. For his sake I hope he gets off, because I have seen this dude in person, and he is not only *** but mad thin, a real lightweight. Where was Hollywood Hav when all this Gat *** was going down.
