HOODX 3.0: We stay lit. All day. All night
A quote that holds power in the world of Michael Ellis, also known as Prolifik-- “I’ve always taken risks. I’ve made a lot of mistakes, too. As cliche as it may be, it truly is about the lessons.”
Born in Dallas, TX, and moving to Cincinnati a few years after, his ability to hear music the way that he does can be explained by the differences in musical culture from the two states.
“I listened to a lot of down south music growing up: Flip, Mr. Pookie, Scarface, and a lot of No Limit. Then around high school, I was introduced to East Coast music. I got hooked on Jay-Z instantly.”
Prolifik is releasing his first EP titled, “Places”
“I’ve been working on this project for about a year. I think it shows the versatility of my sound and the music.”
This project introduces co-arrangements with his band Dfyance, which is set to release their first group project in Spring of 2018. Features include: Jeremiah Stokes, Gringo Gang, Gi Gi, and more. "Places" is set to release November 28th. Until then, take a look at “November,” a single off of the album.
