Bridgeport, Connecticut MC Prolifik’s got all that, and more – and he’s hungry to take his game to the next level. After conquering his home state’s radio stations and live spots – with airplay on Hartford’s Hot 93.7 and New Haven’s KC 101 and performances at some of the state’s most historic venues – this self-proclaimed “conscious rapper” has continued to sharpen his lyrical skills, and his mic prowess shines on club bangers and introspective tracks alike.

Written By: Prolifik (M. Garofalo)

(chorus)

lemme know that youre worth it (worth it)//

(what) throw ya hands up cause ya game is tight//

(verse 1)

chillin on the wall, baseball cap low// (pause)
looking for a lady with a strong backbone//
that could make it clap so//
I could take her back home//
And when its time ta go she gon still act grown (whoa)// (pause)
Im a bachelor baby//
N I wanna have fun with attractive ladies//
don’t be acting crazy//
Im not thinking past tonight//
so why you talking bout havin babies (whoa)// (pause)
got a bottle in my hand n// (pause)
I – got a model on me dancin//
I – like the way she moves//
Got me thinking bout the right time ta make a move (whoa)//
What a wonderful night// (pause)
Im not out looking for the love a my life//
Just a one hit wonder for the covers tonight//
Got the bait on the hook gimme something ta bite//

(verse 2)

new drink in my hand still dancing with dimes//
I need a top ten with a scandalous mind//
The ideal chick that im planning ta find//
Is a freak in the sheets that can handle the ride (whoa)// (pause)
N the night is young//
Another round on me cause im kinda drunk//
Another girl on me and im tryna cut// (pause)
Back it up, drop down now grind it up (whoa)// (pause)
You know im ballin out (ballin)// (pause)
Imma show yall what its all about//
You buyin girls drinks till they fallin down//
N the only thing you pullin is a wallet out (whoa)// (pause)
N im baggin chicks// (pause)
That are all that n a bag a chips//
Like it’s im playin a game a tag, youre it// (pause)
Now come take a ride on the magic stick//

Keep It Movin'

Written By: Prolifik (M. Garofalo)

(chorus)

Keep – keep – keep it movin//
(N we) keep – keep – keep it movin//
earthquakes may shake but we keep it movin//
n hearts may break but we keep it movin//
Keep – keep – keep it movin//
(N we) keep – keep – keep it movin//
terrorists may hit but we keep it movin//
people may jump ship but we keep it movin//

(verse 1)

you work all day for a small ass paycheck//
n you owe money that you haven’t even made yet// (pause)
loans n bills ta name a few//
you got one more week then the payments due// (pause)
2 more weeks n the babys due//
no one in the world could relate ta you// (pause)
you turn on the tv n flip through the channels//
n you see drugs n the government scandals//
news on the war// (pause)
another man killed//
the world keeps turning it doesn’t stand still// (pause)
gotta press on//
you cant be depressed or youll get stepped on// (pause)
you gotta press on// (pause)
2 part times//
no health insurance// (quick pause)
times like these make sellin worth it// (pause)
cant believe (hold out -ieve) that hell is worse then//
the hell you work in//
I tell a person//

(verse 2)

you give a hug ta ya husband for the last time//
before he gets locked up for his last crime//
you got knocked up, you were just sixteen// (pause)
high school drop out, no more dreams//
addicted ta o.c.s n morphine//
you die who’d cry, they don’t mourn feins// (pause)
tv screen shows more war scenes// (pause)
whats up next (pause) new Orleans// (pause)
but you gotta keep keep keep it movin//
you don’t wanna be the reason ya son is usin// (pause)
DCF gotta see improvement//
Or they’ll come take away that seed you ruined// (pause)
Try ta get a job but youre names in the system//
Can’t drug test, cocaines in ya system// (pause)
No choice but ta prove em wrong//
When the going gets tough we move along//

(verse 3)

its been six weeks n youre lost without em// (pause)
tears come down when you talk about em// (pause)
still so much that you wish you told em//
forgot what it feels like ta kiss n hold em// (pause)
No doctor can heal your pain// (pause)
N you wonder if he feels the same// (pause)
When ya phone rings you pray its him// (pause)
You know everything you gone say ta him// (pause)
One more chance, youd be makin it right//
erasing the fights//
n replace em with laughs/
but we know you cant change the past// (pause)
you could just wait for the pain ta pass// (pause)
you feel like no one knows you now//
he was always there just ta hold you down// (pause)
you don’t appreciate what you got till you lose it//
but keep keep keep it movin//
