Eric Blands A.K.A PROPHET was and born and raised in Englewood, NJ and now resides Northern VA pursuing his music career. Prophetto gravitated towards Hip Hop like most black male youth of today at an early age and began rapping at the age of 15, meanwhile still retaining a love for R&B and an array of different genres. Heavily influenced by many Hip Hop artists, the ones that stand out are Pac, Biggie, Nas, Jay-Z, and Eminem in no specific order. Though these are the first to come to mind he still listens to and respects an array of artists like Kool G Rap, Common, Dead Pres, Lil Brother, Slum Village, Ericka Badu, Jill Scott, Dwelye, Twista, K. West, and list goes on.

Since moving into the domain of the DIRTY SOUTH Prophet has been able to broaden his horizons and become more versatile in his craft. Prophet writes his lyrics from the heart and likes to use real life experiences to influence his material. At the same time, he likes to make feel good music as well.
