Last we heard from Prote-J, it was August of 2012 and the Florida emcee/producer was expressing his disillusionment with the music industry on tension-fraught mixtape cut All of the Lies. What a difference two years can make. Newly-released promo cut Runnin’ has a sunny, exuberant vibe listeners are sure to relish, given the gray skies and frigid temperatures currently plaguing much of the U.S. Over his own beat, a catchy sampling of The Temptations’ Just My Imagination, Prote-J mixes upbeat game-spitting with sanguine reflections on the state of his career. Guest singer D. Daniels does his best Eddie Kendricks on the hook. Like what you’re hearing? Then keep it locked; Runnin’ isn’t attached to a larger set, but we’ll keep you posted on Prote-J’s 2014 plans as further details emerge.
