Philly sensation D Prime 215 releases visuals for “Essence of Authentic”, produced by Mute Won with cuts and scratches by legendary DJ Soulbuck. Prime is picking up where “Essence of Authentic” (2016) left off. His vision is brought to life by Rekkless Life Films and represents Philly in more ways than one.
“Authenticity is the crux of being, including but not limited to being an artist. Being true to who you are is everything. In my case as an artist, that means representing Integrity, flyness, lyricism, Philly & pro blackness.” – D Prime 215
It can be said that Prime’s representation of not only his Philly derived roots but also Hip Hop is authentically captured in each quick-witted lyric, and audiences who press play will experience that devotement. Prime’s infectious and metaphoric wordplay swarms through the streets of Philly and around signature buildings and cornerstones. The aerial view adds a heightened sense of pride, “life, I learn my lessons from it/As far as the authentic, I’m the essence of it/And if it ain’t here yet, then the best is coming /Look, the honor’s what I represent/ It brought me scars from the decadence /Keep it 100, more than a dead president/ Let the record set the precedent.”
