- Artist: Prohaize
- Track: Wade in the Water
- Producer: BryceJBThomas
- Album: African Born, American Raised
An unsigned buzzmaker hailing from Atlanta, Georgia, Prohaize makes his grand entrance into The DJBooth with new single Wade in the Water. The record draws inspiration from from the well-known Negro spiritual of the same name, and its themes are every bit as provocative as that pedigree would lead you to expect. A bluesy, genre-bending beat by BryceJBThomas backs the artist as he spits about African Americans' “contemporary enslavement through social, economic, and self-inflicted [oppression].” Heavy stuff but, sweetened by Levii Turner's soulful hook vocals, the track goes down smoothly. For more, cop Prohaize's highly-anticipated debut mixtape, African Born, American Raised, when it hits the 'net on Tuesday, September 23.
