Well, it always seems to be the genius’ that kinda have me stumped, full of adjectives, wanting to use them all in one big word. Which I may try one day. Because, what do you say?! Especially when you feel like the things you have to express should already seem so obvious to people you expect to understand the way you do. But I know how some folks miss the bus. Or just don’t get the memo. Well, that’s where I step in. I have heard many Producers’ work. And I commend you all. But then there are the ones I can listen to daily. I can appreciate for their versatility. And love for their work ethics. But most of all admire, because they never forget where they come from and yet never limit themselves to where they’re going. This being my perception of 310Prophet.
A Cali native, PROPHET brushed elbows and worked with many A-List celebrities and well known Producers in his career. And I could talk about his past, spending the next few paragraphs telling you about where he came from, how long he’s been doing this and his struggle as an artist. But nah. I would rather talk about where he’s going.
In listening to his work, you wonder where he’s been the last decade. Why not standing next to his predecessors/peers, that he undoubtedly measures up against: fellow Producers like DJ Quik, Dr. Dre and Battelcat, etc.? Reminds you of the politics involved in such a close knit circuit, one can’t help but wonder how Producers like him are not QROWNED long before I see fit. And by listening, you can clearly hear that PROPHET loves his coast, but it’s even more clear that he has a sound of his own and in addition to what you may need, he’s doin’ WTF he feels… Great music.
From the oh so familiar Cali G-Funk: synths, snares and claps and jazzy/funk melodies as heard on “SUGAKANE”. To the trance forming Trap Beats: high hats, synths kicks/808, as you’ll find on “TRAPNOTIC" (MY PERSONAL FAV trap beat), it’s apparent that PROPHET has no hang ups and no hold backs. He’s got this down to a science. I’ve listened to many of his tracks and I can say, I’m either gratefully left day dreaming as I did when listening to one of my other favorites, appropriately named ”PATRONIN’”. It was easy to get lost in this one. It’s captivating. Like the heartbeat of the city on a winter’s night or at dusk in the summer while cruising down PCH, indulging in whatever it is that you may do to enjoy life. Or the cause and effects of tracks like “TRAPPIN 3”, which caused me to want to jump in a cypher and freestyle (which I can’t do); about a life I don’t live (IN THE TRAP). But maybe because while listening, it just seems so appropriate.
His name will be one you speak of often I believe. You can’t deny that feeling we get from good music. You have trends and setters. When you combine the two, it’s definitely a foundation for greatness and longevity. And above all, the man loves music. So cliché, right? Well you listen and be the judge.
So *QROWNED* he is, for his originality in sound and AMAZING ability to be versatile. 310PROPHET.
AND FOR THE RECORD, ONE OF THE TRACKS FEATURED IN THIS BLOG, “TRAPNOTIC”, IS MY S*@T !!!
