Prota is a San Diego, CA, but Alabama born MC, influenced by the emotions of life’s constant changing state. At just 16, Prota was inspired by Souljaboy to start creating hip hop, and what started as trying to make swag music turned into one of the most relatable and consciously gifted artist of his generation. Honest, raw, and sometimes hilarious, Prota has stayed true to himself through insightful lyrics about his life, society, heartbreak and how he can use his words to help people understand that not only are they not alone, but if they just keep going life can only get better. At the same time, he uses the competitiveness, hunger, and fearlessness that he learned from a few of his role models to craft witty metaphors and bars that proves he can hold his own with the best of wordsmiths. Humble beginnings born and raised in Tuskegee, AL, Prota has built a following through various mixtapes throughout the years such as Color Scheme (2014), Hubrisobriety (2015) SoundCloud Rapper 1&2 (2017-2018), A TreeTop Under Oppression (2019), ISO (2020), and A Turtle on a Fencepost (2020) which eventually caught the eye of Capital Records and Def Jam A&R’s and ultimately led to his first tour
