After self-releasing three albums and a few mixtapes – over 200k in sales – rising Hip Hop superstar PROF has become a local legend in his hometown of Southside Minneapolis, and has cultivated a strong fan-base with his outrageous, energetic and charismatic personality. As the newest signee to Rhymesayers Entertainment, Prof is ready to launch into worldwide domination and has begun his ascent by dropping the video for his new track "Ghost" featuring Tech N9ne, which will also appear on his newly announced upcoming album 'Liability,' releasing on October 16, 2015. Fans can pre-order the album now and get "Ghost" instantly on iTunes and Amazon.
'Liability' has an impressive list of producer credits including Ant (Atmosphere), Aesop Rock, Big Chocolate, Mux Mool, Curtiss King and more. The 16-track LP also features dynamic guest appearances from Tech N9ne, Waka Flocka Flame and Petey Pablo. Described as the emcee's "greatest work to date," 'Liability' will also showcase 16 song-specific illustrations, drawn by Prof himself, which will be included in the 36-page CD booklet.
On 'Liability,' Prof describes our world; A place where a harsh environment and poor circumstances can make someone abandon their expectations and change their moral compass. The album takes the listener on a journey of incredible range, and ultimately calls attention to the often unseen conditions that lead individuals down the regrettable paths of being fighters, drunks, drug addicts– or simply put, "liabilities."
Prof has been tirelessly creating and making music for over a decade. While he's continued to develop over that time, both musically and artistically, he's also fine-tuned his live show to such a spectacle that he's undeniably made a lasting impression on the scene. As an entertainer, Prof shows incredible diversity. Whether artistically, or characteristically, he purposefully maneuvers between the parallels of inconceivable experiences and extraordinary fantasies. From the factual to the fictitious, there's seemingly no end to the number of unique narratives or deliveries at his disposal. Once considered the underdog, Prof has fought his way to the forefront of the scene and amassed a ravenous following along the way.
Prof will also be headlining "Prof Outdoors" at Cabooze Outdoor Plaza (4,000 capacity), September 5th in Minneapolis, MN.
