Jah The Prophet transforms pain into life testaments and lessons through his music. Moreover, the rapper’s experiences serve as inspiration for fans who find themselves going through it. Often reflective, Prophet’s lyrics encourage the listener to be unapologetically themselves, fight for what they believe, and take the bad with the good.
“When it’s all said and done, I want to be known as one of the best to ever to do it,” he says. “Not just the best in my craft but one of the most genuine people you come across. I don’t want to fake anything or go against who I am. I want to be remembered for me and all the great things I’ve done.”
Indeed, he lives by this motto. Needless to say, he possesses adaptable flows, authentic, heartfelt bars, and a myriad of instrumentals that allow him to speak his truth.
His recent project Untold Thoughts provides further evidence about his genuine and unmatchable status in the hip-hop game. The seven-track LP finds Jah The Prophet at his most vulnerable as he speaks about trust, loyalty, and what weighs heavy on his mind. We also get an idea of the musician’s ambition. As the title suggests, he allows us to take a peek inside his mind. Millennials might coin it as Jah The Prophet being in his bag. But, I digress.
These topics are met with a melodic flow and several somber trap beats that paint an audiovisual of how the rapper felt in certain moments meant to break him. Yet, instead, they only made Jah The Prophet stronger.
One standout track is “Mirrors.”
In “Mirrors,” Jah The Prophet expresses how life presented him with a fair share of obstacles, which he effortlessly hurdled over. While the musician carries a “can-do” attitude, it isn’t easy at times. He admits
“Life the biggest b*tch and I fear her/I tell you that it’s easy I lied.“
After, he expresses how certain moments tend to test his faith, but he keeps it at the forefront. The star also states that in dating, good looks aren’t the only factor to make him stay. When it comes to haters, he tends to stay low. However, he is happy to show them why he’s the top pick, and they aren’t.
He raps, “I’m finna show out/Show them why these b*tches think I’m the man.”
The artist is more than confident he’ll make it, and this rings true when he drops this line,
“I got no doubts/Postin’ on the brink of my plans.”
Although he’s fallen at times, the rapper still stands tall. He creds music for being his savior.
Before the song ends, Jah The Prophet leaves some advice for those having doubts because of naysayers.
“Level it up and show the drip when you pop out/Look sharp to the crowd so that they can’t tell it’s you.”
Music and Jah The Prophet became an inseparable duo after the musician discovered R&B.
He adds, “Growing up with an older sister made me a big fan of R&B and artists like Aaliyah, Mary J Blige, and Chris Brown. But, the more music I listened to and the older I got, I wished I could express myself in the same way.”
Eventually, Jah The Prophet directed his focus to music, being only fifteen years old at the time.
“I’d sit in my room all day watching videos of Meek Mill, Drake, or J. Cole, trying to study the craft, or at least find out the type of artist I wanted to be. I knew I wanted to move people with my words.”
After getting such incredible feedback on his first song, Jah The Prophet kept going and ’till this day creates music felt by many.
When it’s time to create music, he writes down the first thing that comes to mind. Afterward, the artist finds a beat and turns it up to feel it out. Sometimes, he’ll even record himself reciting lyrics to catch the melody. Jah The Prophet’s most proud of the visuals he puts out, saying he sees the growth whenever he releases one.
