Here is the video for Gotcha that we did a few years ago. The story of how we got it featured on BET is pretty cool.We had a friend at a local magazine called Creative Loafing who had done a full spread feature article on Prophetix. That friend, "Hutch" was also an instructor at Georgia State University in media arts. He provided the facility and storyboard and we provided the camera. The rest is history!Once Hutch finished editing the video, we begin to send out press kits to different video outlets. BET was on that list.It took about a month of mailing out these kits but one day we got a return phone call back from a BET representative.They informed us they wanted to air the video on a show called "The Next". We had a party just to watch it! Imagine seeing yourself not only on the TV but on BET!!!Now believe it can happen to you because it happened to me. Was it luck? Nope. It was down to earth, street smart marketing. See even if BET never played the video, it was still getting plenty of airplay in other markets. Once again its a numbers game. But you've got to play the game to win it. It takes hard work, determination, and vision but if you follow the steps it takes to be successful you will be successful.

Whassup Peeps?I know its been a little while since I've hit you with some newness but have no fear! I always deliver. First up is my homeboy and longtime partner-in-rhyme Eddie Meeks. He's a got a brand new album dropping on June 21st called "Cappuccino's Unauthorized Records".Truly a gem.Now, of course I'm biased not only because that's my brother from another mother but I was fortunate to spit a couple of hot verses on the album too. But honestly, since I've known Meeks since '89, I'm am truly the best person to critique his work honestly and with 100% authority!The verdict: Guilty!!!Guilty of being a dope expression of pure Hiphop. Eddie has always been know for clever rhymes and a voice that's like thunder and he stays true to form on this album. This is 20 tracks of pure heat!I've attached a link to the sampler so you can see for yourself. Like I always say, if you know me, then you know I know good music. The Cappuccino album definitely falls into the good music category.

Peeps,After combing through my hard drive for the next unreleased joint from the Catfish & Chips album, I've decided "Iron Fist" would be pretty cool to let y'all hear.It features both me and Eddie Meeks on lyrics and Wytfang on the beat. As a matter of fact, Wytfang did all the beats on the album.Click here to listen to "Iron Fist"!
