This week, I have the pleasure of featuring Prime City, who in my opinion is a lyrical genius. I watch most of my twitter followers from a distance. But I pay close attention to those who I can tell have straight up talent and I can honestly say Prime City has some raw, lyrical talent. I’m not as heavy into hip-hop as I was when I was a teenager. I feel as though Hip-Hop has turned disastrous and has been flooded with garbage mascaraing as good music.
The sampling of beats mixed with the jibberish played on the radio in my opinion is NOT Hip-Hop. But when I first started listening to Prime City’s songs I said “Hey, I think we have something here.” I’m not B.S’ing when I tell you that I literally was in my house HOLLERING as I listened to “DC 2 Intro” and watched the video on Youtube. If someone were to ask “What is Hip-Hop missing?”, my honest answer would be: “Prime City. So if y’all asses are sleeping on him, wake the hell up, do your ears a favor and let his music flow through your speakers.” His talent is undeniable and it is clearly shown on his latest CD release “King of Pressure” MORE
