Review: Prolifik - Verbal Thoughts 2
Thursday, August 26, 2010

Prolifik is a bit of an anomaly when it comes to local emcees. While the vast majority of our state’s rappers are focused on the underground scene, Prolifik has spent his time there and decided that if he wants to make an impact he’s going to have to be commercially viable first. His latest mix-CD, Verbal Thoughts 2, is a perfect illustration of this. People who’ve followed Prolifik for a while may have noticed his transition, but thankfully it’s not a full one as there are a few non-mainstream songs on Verbal Thoughts 2 that show Prolifik’s dynamic storytelling ability, and songs that feature the likes of Marty James from One Block Radius, and Sullee from VH1’s White Rapper Show, mixed in with the songs that sound like they could fit into any major radio station’s playlist. Also, the hilarious T-Pain spoof “Broke” shows Prolifik isn’t afraid to have fun at the mainstream’s expense. Verbal Thoughts 2 is an album that shows an emcee that’s willing to do what it takes to see success while at the same time make sure that he doesn’t lose his soul. The mainstream will have to watch out for Prolifik.
