With an excess of pure talent seeping through out his every movement, there is only one hip hop machine worth investing in, Prophit. This vibrant prize rapper prevails as an unrestrained lyricist above standard MCs. Far from a silver spoon lucky lad, Prophit was born Reginald M. Wilks. Hailing from the semi tropical but lurking with risk city of Tampa FL, Prophit could be found early on between a rock and a hard place on 42nd and Ellicot. Growing up in a city more known by outsiders as a tourist attraction only hindered the modest occupants and exposed a man to it’s own set of bleakness. Proph explored his elementary years with hip hop to avoid trouble, but trouble latched onto his soul as his circumstances grew dimmer.
In the midst of a gritty dope boy’s monsoon, Proph would later use hip hop to blow in the opposite direction by changing the rhyming climate on a larger scale. “The word struggle, has been an everyday factor of my life ever since I can remember. I have 1 sister and 5 brothers. My pops stayed around the corner, but he never even took the time to visit much less call. I’m really not even sure if I love him or not.” With no frequent viable options for a high school drop out with a dream Proph felt the crushing weight of failure looming nearby. Baring the pitfalls of attempting to hold down a blue-collar job to support the unrelenting burdens of child support and long calling jail sentences, Prophit was tired of coming out on the losing end. He arose determined to clinch his own fate and make success his destiny.
Being at the right place at the right time finally paid off and landed Proph a chance meeting with Samhoody.com’s president Mathew Steele who immediately stepped in as management to mold the artist that stood before him. Proph took his bad habits of difficulty and stepped into the booth with his thick mushy southern accent to pour out his musical mayhems of good vs. evils. Proph signed to Nytcrawlaz Entertainment and never looked back. Taking a cue from his mounting success, Proph formed his own label imprint, Orpheus Entertainment. “Not only am I a rap artist, I am a young producer and engineer as well. I have been faithfully committed to music since the age of 13, and I doubt that will ever stop.”
As the block continued to buzz of the greatness brewing, Prophit supplied the demand by releasing his debut project "09 Is Mine Vol.1: Tryin To Make A Prophit" which moved 13k units in a steady short time span, and still counting. Every major label began to take notice of the next big thing in hip hop, young Prophit. With just one listen it was clear his message’s would resuscitate the rap game’s dying phase, and allow it to rise from the ashes.
This emcee’s voice now began ranking higher in delivery and toting an immaculate flow that was now unstoppable. His Single "Doin My Thang" is putting airwaves in a state of panic.
