BandHip HopAlternative

Alternative Hip-Hop with a raw sound reminiscent of the old skool. Proseed's delivery is raw and intense with thought provoking lyrics. His beats are crafted with an intention to cease the pin-drop snare-take-over. Underground at the root of it all, Proseed is trying to wake the walking dead.


Considered by some to be the livest MC out of Pittsburgh, PA, Proseed combines schematic flow with the total package of delivery, concept, & purpose to create music that means something. He has been heavy on show dates since 2003, opening for such acts as: Aesop Rock, Mr Lif, Tech9NE, Fat Lip (Pharcyde), S.A. Smash, Hangar 18, Blueprint, OneBelo, Illogic, & Louis Logic. Proseed has branched outside the city of Pittsburgh to do shows in Cleveland, Detroit, and Kent, OH and is continuing his efforts to make a statement in other cities. Proseed can be found doing shows with DJ's such as: DJ Nice Rec, who spins in several bars in the Lawrenceville/Bloomfield area, and DJ Drama J, spinning every Saturday night @ Scooby's in Bridgeville, PA. Proseed has worked with producers Maker of Glue & Galapagos4, and Elliot B from Oregon, known for his production efforts for 2Mex and Josh Martinez. His latest release, "Quintessential," was nearly a four year effort, and stands as his best work yet. Such an effort deserved the 8-week ad-run it paid for in the Pittsburgh City Paper between late August & mid October of 2007. The album can be bought in several stores in and around the Pittsburgh area, including: Dave's Music Mine (South Side), The Exchange (Dormont & South Side), Brave New World (Oakland), CD Warehouse (Washington, PA). Discussions of a collaboration with Prozack Turner of Foreign Legion (legendary underground Hip-Hop group) are the latest 'next moves' to provide to the public. Until then, let's keep our fingers crossed and our ears opened. Enjoy the music folks!
