The members were introduced to each other in high school by a neighborhood friend, Kid Twist. Kid Twist linked Flamez and Exile together, and later on Twist introduced the two of them to Neme. Zin O.D. was the younger brother of another neighborhood friend and the last MC to join the group.
They proceeded to rock talent shows and freestyle battles every chance they could get. After graduation, the crew stayed close and continued their journey. Throughout the years this dynamic quartet has released a series of mixtapes and singles for the masses. In 2004, their first single “Pump Ya Fist” dropped, accompanied with a music video.
Shot in downtown Orlando, the video showcased their talent and foreshadowed the greatness to come. In 2005, Prolific released the mixtape called “Live From The O Part 1”. That was just the first installment of the series and in 2008 and 2009, “Live From The O Part 2 and 3” was released, respectively. The singles, “Get Your Hustle Up” and “Situations” produced by San Calo, was released in 2009.
“Get Your Hustle Up” which features Zin O.D., Neme and Exile is a radio ready, street banger, with sharp lyricism and a hypnotizing beat. Flamez, Neme and Zin O.D. are featured on “Situations”. The laid back hook and smooth beat is the perfect platform to let the listener get lost in the storytelling.
With “Live From The O Part 4” and the EP The Movement scheduled to drop in 2010, the sky is the limit. Each member brings a different style to the table, to make Prolific an unstoppable force. Flamez, who is originally from Bronx, NY, has a fearless delivery and a flow like a rollercoaster ride. He moves seamlessly from metaphor to metaphor while riding the beat with ease. Originating from Brooklyn, NY, Neme, has an unmistakable voice with a flow to match.
His raspy voice puts emphasis on every word, and ends each statement with an exclamation point. Zin O.D., who is from Florida, has a rapid fire delivery that can rival Twista’s. At any tempo, he can slow down or speed up his flow to perfectly complement any beat, yet lyrically, pass any test. Exile the Experience was born in Atlanta, Ga, and this southerner uses his distinct pitch and poignant lyrics to leave a lasting impression.
All together, these four men are on a mission to sustain Hip-Hop as a global genre. Welcome to the movement. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
