Prodigy's jailhouse cookbook is bombing with California prison officials who seem to think it's a bad idea to teach inmates how to make hooch.
The Mobb Deep rapper's "Commissary Kitchen: My Infamous Prison Cookbook" was recently banned by the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. Officials fired off a letter to Prodigy, explaining prison wine doesn't fly.
As they said in the letter, obtained by TMZ ... "inmate manufactured alcohol" is a major no-no.
The only problem with this ban? Plenty of Cali inmates are already boned up on home brews ... or so we hear.
