During my interview with production duo Sid Roams on Friday, Bravo dropped this little gem about how Prodigy has been using his time while he’s been incarcerated:

“Right now – behind bars, in prison – what he’s focusing on is crafting verses that are just gonna blow people’s mind. He’s really going in now. Because in retrospect, he feels like he didn’t give enough [on the last three albums]…he’s ready to attack. We have a song that we did with P over the phone and we’re just finishing it up right now. It’s an epic song, and it’s a conversation between him and Twin on phone time. The name of the song is called ‘Phone Tap’, and essentially it’s seven minutes of P just kinda recapping everything that’s happened behind bars and on the outside. It’s a pretty incredible song just unto itself, and you’ll hear some of what P is doing as far as writing. You should hear it within the next month. We’ve sent him beats while he’s been in there, and honestly, he wrote a song to every beat – and we sent him twenty-something beats – and we’re not the only ones. Al sent him joints and everybody’s been sending him stuff, so he’s definitely getting it done.”

More on Sid Roams next week. In the meantime, cop that Big Twins album and check back here to hear ‘Phone Tap’ when it drops…

I want to see how P will sound in this transition. I haven’t been too impressed with the way he has been rhymin’ since Murda Music. Honestly P been sounding real lazy without focus compared to the older joints. It’s good to hear the man is doing something with his time but I guess it’s kinda cliche to hear that a jailed rapper is passing the time writing rhymes. Oh well.

Hope this isn’t just a bunch of hype. P has been super-weak for the last few albums, he barely even rhymes these days.

i dunno i really dug his last album, dude has been weak before that including the mobb deep albums, but i think prison p is just up in the clink building up the hunger and its probably just giving more fuel for the fire, i hope when he gets out he drops some gems on em
