Prophet describes his latest album, “REFLECTIONS”:
“REFLECTIONS” is me as a person. It’s what my mental mindstate was like over the last 2 years. I basically wrote this whole project as like a diary/journal and recorded it like a therapy session. I’ve been through a lot and after “reflecting” on my past I became a better person by becoming more patient and that’s what I’m trying to teach the listeners hoping it’ll help others. It’s open to interpretation though so to other people the meaning might vary.
