D Prime 215 “How It Started” Pt 3 (Video Series)

D Prime 215 links with some of his good friends in South Philly for part 3 of his “How It Started” series. This track/video is produced by Mute Won with cuts by DJ Soulbuck.

“I used to think Airs & Talking Fly was living it up. Now I realize celebrating with loved ones is living it up.”

In this entry, D Prime 215 shares how he became a Hip Hop artist and through his signature lyricism takes us on a timeline depicting his growth and progression throughout the years.

“We all start somewhere. For the third entry in my “How It Started” song series I tell the story on how I started out as a Hip Hop artist to where I’m at today and how I got there. I went from rhyming for the sole sake of impressing friends, cyphers, freestyles, you name it, all to flex the wordplay. Fast forward to me growing as a person and having more life experiences, I began to channel that same energy into storytelling to paint pictures with words outside of just sheer wit.” – D Prime 215

D Prime 215 x Hezekiah – Live From Hysteria Behind the Scenes Vlog

You can’t mention Philly and Hip Hop without including D Prime 215. Consistently releasing music representing 215, the superb lyricist, bestows fans with a behind the scenes look into the creation of his new single “Live from Hysteria” produced by Hezekiah. The single is taken from his critically acclaimed album ‘Forever In A Day.’

Embark on this journey compacted with rhymes and bars depicting the hysteria that surrounds Prime…no hooks needed. “Sonically, it’s a bar heavy record. When I heard the beat from Hezekiah I wanted to create something in the vein of “Making a Murderer” by Black Thought and Styles P.”

The vlog captures the process Hezekiah and Prime go through including recording variations of his vocals. He adds a dynamic twist with adlibs and different voice pitches, which for those familiar with Prime, is a step outside the box for him.

“I speak on a number of my influences from  Big Daddy Kane, Mase, KRS-One & Slick…not name dropping to be portrayed as cool or cultured.” Prime authentically mentions how they coincide with his own style and flow as a lyricist.  I want it known that I didn’t come up out of a hand. I’m influenced by the greats before me, but I’m not here to recreate the wheel. I’m carving my lane, but not afraid to pay homage…”

Watch D Prime 215 x Hezekiah’s “Live From Hysteria” in studio behind the scenes vlog and stream/download the single here on preferred platforms.

Hip Hop recording artist/producer Tekforce returns with the second single off his forthcoming ‘Child of the 80’s’ album, which is based on the old 80’s series called Robotech.

“Trapped” featuring Bill Beats is delivered during a fragile and uncertain time stemming from troubled America…The hook alone is set to resonate and give life to our weary senses. “Trapped!

D Prime 215 Drops “Essence of Authentic” (Video)

Philly sensation D Prime 215 releases visuals for “Essence of Authentic”, produced by Mute Won with cuts and scratches by legendary DJ Soulbuck. Prime is picking up where “Essence of Authentic” (2016) left off. His vision is brought to life by Rekkless Life Films and represents Philly in more ways than one.

“Authenticity is the crux of being, including but not limited to being an artist. Being true to who you are is everything. In my case as an artist, that means representing Integrity, flyness, lyricism, Philly & pro blackness.” – D Prime 215

It can be said that Prime’s representation of not only his Philly derived roots but also Hip Hop is authentically captured in each quick-witted lyric, and audiences who press play will experience that devotement.  Prime’s infectious and metaphoric wordplay swarms through the streets of Philly and around signature buildings and cornerstones. The aerial view adds a heightened sense of pride, “life, I learn my lessons from it/As far as the authentic, I’m the essence of it/And if it ain’t here yet, then the best is coming /Look, the honor’s what I represent/ It brought me scars from the decadence /Keep it 100, more than a dead president/ Let the record set the precedent.”
