Pro-Payne the D.C Prophitt, was born Juley Rome Harris ( Ju – LAY ) of Northeast Washington DC. His mother who was deaf, died when he was only 10 years old and had to grow up not knowing who his father was. Out the gate, it seemed as if PROPHITT was already defeated. However; PROPHITT chose his own steps. He took an interest in making music at only 13, initially influenced by his older brother. But with no real guidance PROPHITT would guide himself down a road filled with numerous encounters with the law.
At age 15, PROPHITT was sentenced to 6 months in a juvenile detention center for over $500.00 in theft, this would lead to a charge of breaking & entering. During his sentence, his 6 month bid turned into 18 Months. He returned back home at the age of 17, where he began to focus on a career in music. However, that unfortunately came to a halt! He got locked up again for burglary at the age 18 and was sentenced to 8 Months in a detention center. Only 32 days after his release, PROPHITT was detained again for armed carjacking & kidnapping. He served 4 years of a 3 year sentence.
When you listen to PROPHITT’S music you can hear the raw emotion and passion behind his rhymes. He delivers first hand knowledge of how he is channeling a better life for himself through his music.
PROPHITT is also no stranger to the media. He was featured in the news and the blogs on two separate occasions within the past two years: one incident involving rap group Migos and secondly and unfortunate incident where PROPHITT was arrested in Maryland after police allegedly saw his girlfriend breastfeeding their baby in the front seat of his car.
The Migos drama stemmed from when the rap group was in DC and member Quavo’s chain was infamously stolen. At the time PROPHITT acted as Migos plug here in the DC area. He even tried to mediate the situation with fellow DC rapper, DC Goon Pablo who claimed that he had stolen the chain. Ultimately, the situation didn’t any get better and PROPHITT still has some unresolved issues about the situation, which he plans to address in a new diss track.
Then last December PROPHITT experienced what a lot of the world has seen play out in the media when it comes to being detained by the police, an unlawful arrest! He was arrested and convicted of disorderly conduct, failure to obey a lawful order and driving with an unrestrained child in the front seat.
He he was handed a 120-day suspended sentence, two years of probation and community service.
All of the trials that PROPHITT has experienced only makes his journey that much worth it. He aims at reaching those individuals who may have had similar experiences and sheds light on issues that affect many in the black community. It gives PROPHITT’S music that much more meaning! You hear the struggle, the pain, the hunger and his destiny for success.
