Prophetik Wizdom is an independent recording artist from St. Louis, MO. Born in Little Rock, AR, but raised in St. Louis, Andrew Eason grew up with his mother and father who acted as one of his main musical influences. Another main influence, his grandfather, was a member of the gospel group, Spiritual Harmonizers. Along with his biggest hip-hop influences J. Cole, Common and Black Thought, Prophetik Wizdom is making his original sound known to the world. Prophetik is most famous for working with Philli Moo and Q-Note on the "I Am Trap Jazz" album released in 2016. In 2018, he released his debut album Prophetik’s Conversation, Vol. 1, which had 24k streams. On July 20, 2019, Prophetik released Vol. 2 which is available on all major platforms. Both albums were written and produced by Prophetik himself, and engineered by Quincy “Q-Note” Watson.

When did you start making music?
Music began at an early age for me. I began playing drums at the age of 11 in marching band and church, but I began as a spoken word artist at 16. Spoken word heavily impacted my lyrical nature, as well as my cadence.
Can you talk more about the meaning of the lyrics in “Prophetik Vizions”?
Prophetik Vizions speaks about the journey to becoming a man, and an artist. I believe that an artist, and a man, should be more than just what he does, but also how he lives. It’s all about “why” you do what you do. Be the change that you want to see in the world!
“Prophetik Vizions” seems to have a diverse lyrical depth to it! What was the writing process like for this track?
It began with a lot of reminiscing, which transitioned into what I see from other artist. The track speaks to what I think is missing in music...lyrics! Seems to be too much mediocrity when it comes to lyrics these days. I believe an artist should be held to a higher standard than just “sounding cool.” Use your platform!
If you had to pick just one song in your collection to adequately describe your sound, which song would you choose and why?
One song is hard because I feel like I have many layers like onions do. However, I think would choose “Who Make It Realer?” I speak about The Pulitzer’s, which are comprised of myself, Philli Moo, Quincy “Q-Note” Watson, and MOVTVN (Eric Mouton). We are all musicians, producers, musical students, and most of all MEN who see the need for change in hip-hop.
What do you hope to achieve as an artist through the end of 2019?
My goal is to reach any ear that will listen. I speak for those who are tired of the same music. Those who want change from the norm. I believe that genuine need for change is what will always be the constant message in my music.
