Biography

Tha Prospects are a hip hop duo consisting of Yung Wyse and Yung C-Zer. The dynamic duo from Durham, North Carolina are a part of the large 13 emcee ensemble, the Microphone Blessing Alliance.

Tha Prospects could not be categorized as one type of hip hop, which led them to create their own sub-genre, Feel Good Musik. Due to their feel good, we just want to have fun music, they have released two mixtapes titled Feel Good Musik and Feel Good Musik 2. Yung C-Zer is the fly boy of the group. He adds to the duo with a comical style, showing that he enjoys having fun in his music. Yung Wyse is the more street savvy of the two, with more punch-line filled lyrics. Dont let the gangsta fool you though, because Wyse has a diverse set of lyrics from songs like Forever where he raps about working hard in the music business to support his family and One Thing Rmx where he makes beautiful music for the females in his past.

The duo have over ten years of combined experience as emcees. After a timely process of writing music, the emcees got their exposure through small battles and ciphers around school. They got their first bit of recognition in high school battling other emcees, like the Bukwild Squad (now the hip hop trio, Thyrday). Battles would take place outside the school, in the cafeteria and even in the hallway before and after school, and during lunch. Yung Wyse and Yung C-Zer also wrote songs during their classes to go into the studio with. The Microphone Blessing Alliance collectively worked on mixtapes to sell to students and teachers.

The road to recognition has been anything but easy for Tha Prospects. It took lots of hard work writing, meeting people and recording in Wyses closet around busy schedules. The group received lots of help by studying other emcees and learning from emcees who had more experience. In 2003, Tha Prospects became school celebrities performing whenever and wherever they could. They would perform in Jordan High Schools hallways, at birthday parties, the school dance, a chorus concert and coffee house events. Their mixtapes and performances led to recognition all around school. The schools newspaper, Falcon Cry, devoted a page to the hip hop scene at the school after witnessing Yung Wyse battle an entire rap group by himself. Both of Tha Prospects were also recognized in the senior superlatives. Yung C-Zer was recognized for being best dressed and best all around, while Yung Wyse, who accepted numerous major roles in the drama department, was recognized as Most Talented.

As the duo continued to grace hip hop heads around the Bull City, they were able to network with many other artists in the triangle. A few of the producers being Khrysis (The Away Team, Thyrday, Masta Ace), Dox (Resonated Radio) and 9th Wonder (Little Brother, Jay-Z, Destinys Child). Tha Prospects have also established connections with Thyrday, Cesar Comanche, Dj India and Dj Samps, to name a few. Tha Prospects have continuously proved they are a force to be reckoned with in the hip hop scene.

With more shows and collaborations in the works and under new management, Tha Prospects are taking steps to be the next big thing to come out of North Carolina.
