about

Since releasing songs with underground rap legends Saigon, Skyzoo & Rapper Big Pooh, American hip hop recording artist D.P. Da Prophet returns with a soulful, self-reflecting & at times a true storytelling project reminiscent of the days when albums like The College Dropout touched more than just our ears. Without any samples to pay tribute to, D.P. Da Prophet & his producers create all original music with a timeless sound. No rap features can be found as Da Prophet sets up an intimate setting between him & his fans that is perfect for devouring his latest body of work. Similar to J. Cole's Born Sinner, vocalists & choirs are the only guests to appear on D.P.'s This Is For You. Sit back, put your headphones on & get lost with every snare, kick & word that was assembled just for you.

Track Name: Nice To Meet Ya
Intro:
Let me introduce myself
I'm D.P. Da Prophet
This Is For You

Verse:
I Was a big boy so they made fun of me
Always been a outcast not talking Andre 3
I am hip hop this is personal to me
So nice with the instruments could of got a surgical degree (whoo)
Underground legend in the making who I be
All I need is one mic Nas Stillmatic on repeat
Fresh kicks up on my feet, my daughter kissed me on the cheek
Told me I'm the best huh now that's a major key
No doors on the jeep, from Richmond to VA Beach
Riding to feel the breeze, chasing chasing our dreams
They play me overseas they hating just cuz i'm me
Hip hop ain't dead hear it breathe
I do it for the culture you do what your label tell ya
I ain't rapping just to sell cuz I ain't for sale let me tell ya
If I meet death now getting hit by these hollow rounds
Gonna live forever like they did Pac with his hologram
Black Album playing out my speakers once more
Hoping when I retire they begging for a encore
What more can I say they loving the allure (get it)
They can feel my presence when I walk up through the door (nice)
I don't need ice to shine I bling
I don't want a spot at your table cuz at mine I'm king
I don't need a bunch of writers to give me some ideas
Cuz everything I'm writing's my life it's all real
D.P. Da Prophet most hated to being famous
Easy to lose yourself in the music like Slim Shady
Illuminati making most rappers deep throat (what)
But not me though I represent the G code (whoo)
People closest to you the ones plotting on the low
Jealous ones still envy yea word to Joe (come on)
I'm bout to sign off just remember I came
Naw forget that better remember my name
Prophet

Hook:
Hip hop blasting out my speakers
Source Magazine gave me a feature
I'm D.P. Da Prophet nice to meet ya
Da Poet Da Prophet nice to meet ya
Hip hop blasting out my speakers
Hype magazine gave me a feature
I'm D.P. Da Prophet nice to meet ya
Da Poet Da Prophet nice to meet ya
