Why did you choose the name Prolifek?
I chose prolifek my sophomore year in high school when I learned what the word meant. As I do now I would write a lot of rhymes and create a lot of music so “prolific” was a suitable name for me.
What is your chosen genre?
I love rap, hip hop, trap & r&b. I would chose all of these. I don’t categorize myself too much. I feel I can blend into any of those styles I listed above.
How long have you been creating music?
I’ve been working on music since I was about 12 years old.
What drew you to the music industry?
Living in a struggle made me want to rap about it. Hearing 50 Cents “Get Rich or Die Trying” made me want to share my stories as well.
Please explain your creative process
Ain’t too much of a process, I just do it. I’ll hear the instrumental and begin to freestyle lyrics to it, as I go I’ll video record with my phone to remember the rhythms. Then I go in the booth and record.
Is there a hidden meaning in any of your music?
No, no hidden meanings.
