If you have not heard of Prof, it is about time you did. This newly signed Rhymesayers artist has a unique style combining hard lyrics with hard beats. His over-the-top personality makes for hyped-up live performances and songs that are high-energy but also have meaning. He has self-released three albums and three mixtapes, all of which contain groundbreaking music revealing his Minneapolis roots.

Prof has recently released his first album with Rhymesayers Liability, which debuted at number 8 on iTunes’ Hip-Hop Album chart. The album compels listeners to think about life and its harsh realities, and some features on the album include Tech N9ne, Waka Flocka Flame, Ant (Atmosphere), and many more.

Prof Liability

Prof has just premiered his music video for the album’s song “Apeshit,” which paints the picture of an average man losing his cool and going out and doing some crazy stuff. “This song is about reaching that level where you just lose your mind and let that inner animal take over. It feels good sometimes. You should try that shit…Don’t lie to me. I know you like to break shit,” says Prof. The artistry of the video comes together in the end, which I will leave for you to discover on your own.

What makes Prof stand out is his outrageous message. He fits in perfectly with Rhymesayers because, although he has a weird way of doing it, he makes music that is worthwhile and makes people wake up and think. Rolling Stone called him “a perverted Macklemore from a parallel universe with a fixation on debauchery and an ear for a pop hook.”

When I saw Prof live I fell in love with his diverse music and captivating performance. He will be taking his album across the nation this fall on his Liability Tour, and LA fans will get a chance to see him at the L.A. Coliseum as part of this year’s Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival.
