Prolificity, And A Point To Prove - Prolific Releases Video For The Song 'Point To Prove' From the EP '22:22'

Some of the listeners with inclinations to underground hip hop may have known a rapper called Kamz Thx Pxpe. But he changed his name, he is now called Prolific. A befitting name for an artist with a strand of work ethic par excellence. 

Prolific 22:22 Ep Point to prove cottage 47

Prolific is part of the Cottage 47 collective from Bulawayo, who have been making headway progress as far as infusing their sound in the discourse of Zimbabwean Hip-Hop is concerned. In August last year, he released a mouthwatering project titled 22:22. The debut EP was a strong vindication for all those who had listened to Prolific since he started, and to the new listeners as well. With implied and express lyric provision, he talks about his worth in the game, his wishes and ambitions, the status quo of the system, as well as proffering refreshing doses of motivation and the hustle. It is a project in which he unflinchingly disproves critics who doubts his purpose - making art. 

The last track on 22:22 is called Point To Prove, and with the video he released for it, he undoubtedly has a point to prove - a strong point for that matter. Prolific gives us a glimpse of his state of mind which vacillates from abstract rap to the conventional. But all the same still telling he has a huge point to prove. 

The video exudes the aura of a rapper who knows his worth and who cannot be told what to do. It is a video that also reflects the identity of Cottage 47. And how it shows a rapper who does not care for much except for the fact that he is doing what he loves - making art through rapping. 

Prolific is an embodiment of the trajectory that the Zimbabwean hip-hop game is taking, and the pushing of boundaries previously untouched.
