“Heard you sliding, I just sent you an addy, I can’t wait to see you…”
– quote from “Close Up”
Prophet just released an upbeat hip-hop jam titled “Close Up”, which was produced by Tobi Aitch x Dvtchie. The track is accompanied by a video clip in which Prophet and his friends are having a good time, drinking, and just chilling in front of a convenience store at a gas station and car shop. In some shots of a car shop, Prophet spit some hot rap bars as his friends stand around him. The song has a catchy, groovy rhythm that is easy to vibe to, in addition to the smooth sound of Prophet’s voice. His lyrics and style are so real and relatable to his audience.
With over 118 thousand views on YouTube and multiple streaming on other online platforms, “Close Up” is a successful hit.
