Rapper Prodigy has hosted a fundraising event in aid of children whose parents are in prison.

The Mobb Deep star welcomed guests to the Griffin nightclub in New York earlier this week (beg19Nov12) at a charity dinner for the In Arms Reach organisation.

Fellow hip-hop idol Flo Rida and American football star Jason Pierre-Paul were among the audience as Prodigy finished the evening with an impromptu gig, according to New York Post gossip column Page Six.

In Arms Reach helps to support the children of U.S. prison inmates.
