Close your eyes and listen to the energy of the drums. Grant your conscience permission to heighten your sensory. Allow the rhythm and vibe to move you mentally, physically and emotionally, meditating on the beat literally. This is how the notable Emcee, Enoch 7th Prophet, prepares himself to create new music to be embraced by the many followers who receive message-based music.
For over a decade, Enoch 7th Prophet has been the go-to host and musician for creative HipHop projects in the nation’s capital. The favored DC native has shared stages and packed venues with HipHop moguls such as KRS-One, Redman, Keith Murray, Erick Sermon, Goodie Mob, and many more. Described as humble, laid back, and originative; Enoch takes on the persona of his inner voice when transforming in to the instant crowd and mic controller you see on stage.
Enoch 7th Prophet was a leader in the grass roots –style movement of music production and independent releases, before iTunes, Tune Core, and Rhapsody, with 11 combined solo & group projects under his belt, Fickle Mind State, Aztec Planet, 7th Prophet, Tone Scientizt, Data Frequency, Balance Approach Vol 1, Electrik Sol Force, 3xDPE, No Beatz, Wizdom for the Streetz Vol 1 & 2, and his latest release, RETURN OF THE PROPHET, as well as multiple singles released independently such as the P.S.A, to show support for prostate cancer awareness.
Enoch received his early introduction to music through his family members who were also singing, playing instruments, and making music, which inspired the creative process that now demands the attention of crowds. At the young age of 12, Enoch became the youngest percussionist in a gospel group in DC, playing congas and then moving on to master bongos and drum sets. In his sophomore year at Voorhees College, South Carolina, the sociology major walked in to the band room and started playing the drums like a calling. By junior year he was the band director, teaching students to read and play music until graduating. Motivated by the 90’s influences such as Redman, KRS-One, Jeru the Damaja, Edo. G, Black Thought, jazz, funk, and mantra music, Enoch’s inclination towards HipHop music naturally grew, breaking through to reach the open minded, like a deep rooted tree to a concrete substrate.
Enoch the 7th Prophet exhibits his rare art for balancing musical energy, galvanized by an ancestral background, through an unmatched strength to produce Voorhees College music with depth and significance, evoking excellence simplified in to one universal term, “Dope.” Listen to, RETURN OF THE PROPHET, Enoch’s latest masterpiece solo album on Bandcamp.
