Team Prolific

Welcome to the movement. The Hip-Hop group named Prolific, which consists of four MC’s from the southeast, started this movement back in 1997. Flamez, Neme, Zin O.D. and Exile the Experience met while living in Orlando, Florida. The members were introduced to each other in high school by a neighborhood friend. He linked Flamez and Exile together, and later on they were introduced 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 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. “Spell On You” featuring Nina Simone produced by Sutta Caine and “The Real” produced by San Calo was released in 2010. Also in 2010 Prolific linked up with two of Germanys top Dj’s, Dj Decane and Dj Danny T to help release both their mixtapes “New York New York hosted by Prolific”and “Hip Hop 2 RnB vol.12 hosted by Prolific, they also license one of their song “Getting Down” with allisports. With the release of “ Sampler” ”Southern Hospitality and Prolific upcoming mixtapes “Now Or Never” “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.
