Mobb Deep’s best years were already behind them when Prodigy was sentenced to serve three-and-a-half years in prison on weapons charges in 2007. The group was fresh out of a failed tenure on 50 Cent’s G-Unit label and both of them were releasing music as solo artists. In the years that Prodigy was locked away the Hip Hop was veering farther and farther away from the 90s East Coast sound that he and his partner Havoc helped make popular. The good thing for P is that in those years the game became better suited for artists to release music independently. He has capitalized on that by releasing music at his own will since he got out in 2011.

Verdict: Hung Jury. Jail time took time away from P’s personal life obviously, but his career hasn’t really suffered or prospered because if it either.
