They say that you need to compromise. That you can make good music, or commercially successful music, but you can’t make both. They’re wrong, and singer/rapper/songwriter/Renaissance man Prote-J is out to prove it. Making his DJBooth debut today with his mixtape cut Foreign, the multi-talented Florida-based musician has crafted this mixtape standout into a sonic introduction to his unique style, an introduction that comes in the form of a sometimes haunting, ethereal beat (courtesy of the man himself) that’s matched by his blend of lyrical arrogance, positivity and pop culture references: “Who knew a kid from the third world could actually match with these, big city cats with ease, verbally?” I have to say, I’m impressed. On the other hand, if you’ve got something negative to say about Foreign go ahead, but judging by the track, I don’t think Prote-J is going to be listening. If you’re digging the newcomer’s sound, be sure to download his new mixtape Good Hip Hop Meets Radio, available now.
