The Prophet's second full length album, 'Sworn In,' is his first release after being signed to Avatar Records (a subsidiary of Universal). Still staying true to his creative side, he jumped on Avatar, but is also still with Creative Minds Entertainment.
A lot of hip hop music can be pinned down to a certain area. For example, we will always associated that raw Wu-Tang kind of sound with the East Coast big cities. While that gangsta, funk, Dr. Dre sound is associated with the West Coast. 'Sworn In' is a great album that has a blend of both the west and the east.
The beats and production have that west coast sound, while the rapping is a strong east coast style. Lyrics that are simple, but yet complex at the same time. A strong poet style of rapping, with words so conscious and understandable.
'I N D E P E N D E N T L Y,' is definitely an attention grabber. The beat is two simple chords, but don't feel misguided. The lyrical delivery in the song grabs your attention over the beat and forces you to listen to the words. Something he seems to do a good job of, like in the song 'What If.' The song is a rap where he speaks between himself and an imaginative alter ego.
Consider it a mix rather than an album, because you'll get a taste of something different and new in the next song.
