New York born rap­per and pro­du­cer PROFYT releases his first single from his upcom­ing debut EP. Draw­ing from the dark side of hip hop and trap, ‘May­or of New York’ artic­u­lates the degrad­a­tion of the city of New York, par­tic­u­larly in response to recent alleg­a­tions of mis­con­duct by sev­er­al state lead­ers. PROFYT brings influ­ences from the clas­sic New York jazz sounds and com­bines that with 90s hip hop and cur­rent hip hop trends. The dark nature of the lyr­ics and instru­ment­al is sym­bol­ic of the dec­ad­ent city and the power exer­ted by men in suits.
Based in New York’s Man­hat­tan, PROFYT truly incor­por­ates his city into his sound, draw­ing his influ­ence from the loc­al rich music­al his­tory and tak­ing his inspir­a­tion from the streets, but also from Notori­ous B.I.G and Nas. Work­ing com­pletely as a solo artist, writ­ing and pro­du­cing the music him­self, this upcom­ing pro­ject debut offers an insight into the artist’s mul­ti­fa­ceted per­sona and work. Mastered by Chris Gehringer (Rihanna, Nas, Cardi B), ‘May­or of New York’ is the debut single from the EP, set for release later this year, and is now avail­able on all major stream­ing plat­forms.
