When most rappers make a song called Higher they’ve got some of that sticky green on their minds (and in their lungs), but Proph’s focused on an even worthier goal; love. Making his DJBooth debut with the world premiere of Higher, the Milwaukee native laces up a smooth, hypnotic and understated beat from Traxx Sanders (for Trak Runnaz) with rhymes that show a young man wise to the often disastrous temptation of the world: “Wool over my eyes, the devil’s foolin me / money, cars, jewelry, it ruined me.” It’s a message that guest artist Gerald Walker echoes in a tightly spun closing verse, resulting in a track that will assuredly have listeners thirsting for some news of a larger project from Proph – keep it locked to The DJBooth for any updates.
