According to HotNewHipHop, Prodigy had been working on a new project prior to his death which was a musical based upon illuminati rumors in hip hop.
"The one thing we were planning on doing was a musical about the Illuminati and how the obsession with the Illuminati infiltrated people’s opinions of hip-hop. We were initially going to do an interactive type of musical with a company that runs The Illuminati Ball, but then we decided to take our idea to an off-Broadway situation." says his publicist.
