5 Minutes, 5 Questions With… Prolific Exclusive Interview
5 Minutes, 5 Questions With…
(Bosses That Meet Bosses Group)

Joey Pinkney: Who is Prolific? Why did you choose this name to represent the group?

Prolific: Prolific is a music group made up of three members: Matty Norite, Filthy Rich and Ray Blast. We picked the name Prolific because we are involved in so many different aspects of the game from production, beats, fashion, events and parties. Plus, Rich is a show DJ. We get it in real big. You know Prolific.

JP: What does Prolific add to the game that it’s missing?

Prolific: Prolific brings real Hip Hop back to reality. People are just rapping and ain’t saying nothing. Please excuse my improper english, but it is what it is.

JP: What was the most interesting response from a fan that you can remember?

Prolific: Because two-thirds of Prolific is white, when we perfrom just before we get on stage you can see poeple who do not know us backs turn. The second we start playing that hateration turns into head knocking and the party begins. One DJ from Dive FM, Mr. D., said to me in an interview, “Yo Matty, who doesn’t like you?” I said, “Mr D., even my haters love me. Chea!”

JP: What is it going to take to get from where you are to the international status you hope to achieve?

Prolific: “Grussel”. It is a mix between hustling and grinding. You have to be determind because not everyone is going to feel you. That has to be the greatest task that we had to overcome.

When critics give you a bad review because your not the right skin color or you just had a bad day and did not showcase to your full ability, you have to be able to respond and knock ’em out the box in the second round. Bottom line, we have not yet once heard any bells ring, so Prolific keeps on fighting.

JP: What projects do you have coming out in the near future?

Prolific: We are currently working on Mr Keys’ album and mix tape, followed by a mix tape from Prolific and soon to come solo albums from Rich and myself, Matty Norite. We also are involved with Bosses That Meet Bosses Music Group. This is a joint venture with Polo The Fur King, who also manages us and produces our clothing line.

We are currently working with MaggBeatz and Billy Blass who are the top two beat makers and producers in the game. If you don’t know, get familiar.
