Reasons You Should Know Prof

Prof is the undisputed king of the underground hip-hop scene right now. If you haven’t heard of him yet it’s time to change that and convert to the church of gampo.

He has a legion of dedicated followers and street teamers who call themselves “gampo’s”

He’s sold out every show he’s headlined in his hometown (Minneapolis, Minnesota) for the past 3 years. That includes multiple and back-to-back shows at Prince’s legendary venue First Avenue.

His last album was marketed with pregnant women in bikini’s, both the album cover and a video for his single “Me Boi” included pregnant women.

He’s featured on the line-up for this years Rock the Bells, which is a hip-hop mega-show. He even created an anthem for it!

His sense of humor is unbeatable! He is a performer in every sense. To showcase this he did a web series with friend Rahzwell.

His resume boasts a variety of memorable songs, including features from the likes of other hip-hop greats such as Slug from Atmosphere, Brother Ali, RiFF RaFF, Yelawolf, Grieves, P.O.S. from Doomtree and many more.

As a true believer in giving back to the fans, him and his record label Stophouse Group, give all of his releases away for free. That way fans can learn lyrics and instead put money towards concert tickets.

Two words: The Mustache.

Single-handly turned Jameson into Minnesota’s go-to whiskey.

Has the greatest merchandise ever. Check out this sweatshirt from HollyHoodz.

His music videos are reminiscent of early Ludacris and Eminem videos.

His DJ, DJ Fundo is arguably the best hype man from Minnesota.

He’s not only played the large festivals such as Rock the Bells, Summerset, and Soundset but he also hosted his very own sold-out mini-festival.

His live shows will reaffirm any fleeting beliefs of a higher power.
