After nearly 2 months of grinding in the studio piecing together his debut project, the day has finally come for Queens, NY emcee Prophit to share with the world Cause When You Stop Dreaming, It’s Time To Die. For those who lost hope in the current stagnant state of hip hop and the abundance of upcoming subpar emcees, Prophit provides hope to those who once cherished the culture for what it was. Featuring collabos with D-Black, Jesse Boykins III, Lady Love, Brandon Wronski of Eye Alaska and production from Gabe Wax, Fyness, Heart Collapse, DJ Woof, Beewirks, DJ Shadow and more, you’re sure to find something that will reassure you that Proph is indeed the real deal. The kid who thought he was a legend in his own mind will soon be a legend to all. Tracklisting after the jump and props to VJKIM.com for the dope artwork. Enjoy!!

UPDATE: I put an alternate link just in case the other was acting up…SPREAD THE LOVE!!

OB4CL2 Tracklist + Production Credits + 1st Review

The anticipation for Rae’s followup to his debut classic LP has been relentless as of late and once the tracklisting and production credits dropped, I can easily say this will probably be MY album of the year. I know I havent heard anything really from it, so how can I judge so early and set myself up for a disappointment, but in all honesty, I trust The Chef’s ear and as long as he took to make this album happen with the lineup he has backing him up from J Dilla, Marley Marl, Dr. Dre, Rza and more, how can you not believe this is going to murder everything in sight! Hit the jump for the tracklisting and also hit up Hip Hop Chronicle UK for their 1st hands-on review of the purple tape sequel.
