Prodigy is set to release H.N.I.C. Part 2 in 1,400 languages using Voxonic voice conversion technology.
Said Prodigy: "I'll be the first hip hop artist to release a record that's converted into foreign languages using the Voxonic voice conversion technology. The technology they use is a great opportunity for me to keep supplying my fans around the world with music to hold them down while I'm away."
Said his publicist: "Unfortunately this release comes at a peculiar time, as Prodigy is preparing for a three year prison stint in connection with a recent charge for which he was arrested. He begins his term on Jan. 9th which gives us very little time to arrange interviews. We apologize in advance for the small window of time."
The Chicagoist reported that Gene Lee died last week. His fam posted a blog on his myspace page about how he'd been struggling emotionally since dropping out of med school some time ago. We assume anyone who dances around Wicker Park and Co. in speedos whenever weather permits is working some stuff out in his head.
The first time I peeped his steez was two years ago at Pitchfork Fest when he was rioting in his hotpants just outside the backstage area. Some of the artists invited him onstage to do his thing. Then he continued lurking around the hipster hood in his panties and it got a little weird, like "Oh, there's that dancing underwear guy," which I guess just adds texture in a city with other local celebrities like the Pigeon Man (*pouring some out for him too*).
