Prophecy / Bio

Prophecy
Born Tramaine Anthony Cribbs out of Brooklyn Ny June 19 1987.
As a kid he would often imitate what he seen on television and at that time it was either Michael Jackson moonwalking or Mc Hammer's "You can't touch this". His family were musically inclined as well so the house was full of inspiration. What made him want to be an entertainer wasn't just Mj or Mc Hammer it was meeting the Late Christopher Wallace in his building elevator then seeing him on tv as the Notorious B.I.G. That moment life changed music became the ultimate career goal for Tramaine. then came Royal Nation the senior choir at his church Believers Gateway To Freedom where he learned how to sing and harmonize. With the choir being gendered more towards the older adults the church decided to start the "Angels" choir and that's when he got his chance to sing lead. From the look of everyone in the church crying after his performance he knew he had something special. Tramaine and his family moved to Richmond Virginia but that was brief cuz after 1 year they moved right back to Ny to the infamous Halsey st where he was reunited with his childhood friend Donquest and HipHop became the most important thing in their lives."Rolling Deep" was the first song him and Quest did together. at the time HipHop was going through a deadly East coast Vs West coast rivalry and in the years 1996 and 1997 Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G were killed. Prophecy was devastated sitting by his radio crying as the news went viral that one of his idols were killed. That made a young Prophecy and Quest grow up fast. When Biggies last album Life After Death released Quest and Proph studied the Mc craft. Proph would always say Quest was always a nice rapper even at 11 or 12 years of age and he was right cuz at 14 Quest was signed to BigManEnt and his music career had began. Proph had to come out his friend shadow and find his own. He got that chance when his cousins Ace and Joe moved to Long Island. They would record themselves rapping to all sorts of instrumentals battle rapping and clowning but a Mc ain't prolific unless he's been battle tested so that's exactly what he did battle everyone. In 2003 he spent the summer with Ace and Joe in Myrtle Beach Sc where he meet Akademic a rapper from Philly. Akademic had a good buzz in the streets cuz he was the best battle rapper in Myrtle Beach. Him and Proph use to always just rap the night away building then more rapping at this time Prophecy is becoming a better rapper and elite freestyler. When reunited with Quest Proph was a more seasoned Mc and Quest was cut from BigManEnt. Quest created Get Money Empire and they recorded music at Live It Up studios in East Ny.
GME had a good run but they never released a project. Prophecy did his first project in 2008 when Quest left for college. Prophecy released "Your All Welcome" with his friends Twin City in dedication to their 21st birthday. Prophecy and Twin City would go on and release 4 other mix tapes after that. In 2010
Prophecy was signed as a songwriter for Sandy Lal and Damon Eden Kingpin Entertainment. There he meet his friend and mentors Chris Jackson and Dan Smith and that's where he became a complete artist. Prophecy left Kingpin entertainment due to the birth of his son "Prince Aiden" to work and support his family, due to him having no placements. He was fortunate enough to work with Mario Winans,Shontelle,David Guetta,Jacob Latimore,Karina Parsian,Nate Walker. Now Prophecy and Quest head a group IVY League featuring Twin City and Y.O.
Prophecy just released #061987 mixtape in dedication to the rebirth of his new regime and the birth of his daughter. His first official release under Mind Grind
