Introducing The Realness:
The Untold story of Albert “Prodigy"

The slate wrote:
Prodigy was known for his ability to tell gritty and often nihilistic stories grounded in the black experience of what Cornel West calls the underside of the American democratic experiment, and The Realness beautifully and empathetically reveals why his songs have such an edge. It’s not because he was, like Jay-Z, born into a family where he felt he had to sell drugs or that he, like Nas, felt his genius was underappreciated. Prodigy’s struggle was more personal, and it took his life on June 20, 2017, at the age of 42.

From Ralph, Brittany, Ice, and our team of interns, we wish you a happy, healthy, and rockin' 2019!
