In an era where lyricism and substance are becoming an endangered species, Milwaukee native Taiyamo Denku and Australian beatsmith Dcypha take a blunt stance on the matter. Alongside east coast emcee L Majestic, the trio call out unfit artists on “Prove Your Worth”, forcing them to validate their position on the mic
Taiyamo Denku, who is extremely proactive when it comes to voicing his views on the genre, kicks the song off by explaining the outcome of fraudulent rappers in the streets of Milwaukee. On the hook he spits, “prove this / prove that / prove that you’re worth something, no money attached”. This is a play on the notion that emceeing should be based on skills and credibility, not plays and finances.
L Majestic takes this notion one step further and beyond by taking us into the matrix of the music business. He keeps it all the way one hundred with lines like, “I stay doing this music because I’m dedicated / I refuse to be a washed up rapper who never made it / cause deep in my heart, I know I truly flow / but it’s not about how nice you are, it’s who you know”.
All egos aside, Denku, Majestic and Dcypha simple want to see the art form they hold so near and dear to their hearts alive and well for many generations to come. With that said, it’s your turn to step up to the Hip Hop counsel and “Prove Your Worth”.
