Hailing from the South Bronx by way of the North Carolina, 15-year-old emcee, Elijah The Young Prophit (born Elijah Pacheco) started earning his stripes in the rap game early on, showcasing both his lyrical prowess and his hunger to make sure he’s respectfully putting in his 10,000 hours.
His latest offering, “Letter 2 Trump,” draws from today’s tremulous political climate under Donald Trump’s command, all while doubling as an insightful and inspiring anthem directed at the youth, instead of solely at the corrupt powers that be.
An intelligible interpretation of today’s seemingly increasingly grim state of affairs, Elijah turns his anger and frustrations into affirmative fuel, tactfully displaying wisdom well beyond his years, and using the single as a direct path to positively influence the next generation.
A bonafide Hip-Hop enthusiast, Elijah The Young Prophit finds himself at home over production by veteran beatsmith Ty Fyffe (whose credits include songs by JAY-Z, Styles P, 50 Cent, Foxy Brown, Rakim and Busta Rhymes, among others), with the pair enlisting the talents of Da Youngfellaz.
The track marks Elijah’s first release of the summer, arriving months after making his anticipated March 2018 self titled debut.
With the hard-earned blessing of music industry vet Erick Sermon, who even has been lending his influential ear and working extensively with Elijah at his Def Squad studios in Long Island, the teenager is eager to build his catalog, doing so bar by bar and track by track.
