What is your name and what city do you rep?

“My name is Prophess I, from the up and coming rap duo, “Dichotomy,” and we represent Whitby, Canada.”

Tell us about your latest releases, what inspired you to create them?

“Since I can’t record due to Covid-19, I decided to drop the single for our debut album entitled, We Serious. Just for a little taste of what we got cooking.”

What is unique about you and your music?

“One of the most unique things about myself, is my relentless work ethic and the complete absence of doubt. What makes Dichotomy’s music unique is that we’re always pushing ourselves creatively. Just on the beats alone, we cover the most sub-genres in the game and dominate them all.”

What shaped your music?

“Our music is completely based off our own lives. Experiences we’ve had and things we’ve taken inspiration from.”

When did you realize you were going to make music professionally?

“I’ve been rapping since I was 9 or 10, that’s when my bro, the second half of Dichotomy, Ill Shun, introduced me to hip-hop. And for as far back as I can remember, all I’ve ever wanted to do was rap.”

What type of music do you listen to?

“I listen to anybody that’s got substance in their music, especially if they’re lyrical and have a unique beat selection.”

What inspires you to write music?

“I draw inspiration from everything, from experiences, books, speeches, and most of all I derive inspiration from the beat itself.”

What do you do when you don’t do music (creative or otherwise) and that you are passionate about?

“All I do outside of music is work my 9-5 as well as work out and basically just anything I can do to improve myself like learning, eating healthy and everything like that.”

Happiness to you is…


What do you wish you were told when you first started making music that you think would help artists just starting out?

“The most valuable thing I’ve learned is simply to always be completely authentic, don’t try to portray yourself as anything other than who you are. And definitely do not try and ride someone else’s wave, build your own.”

Tell us about your upcoming projects…

“So I’m a little held down because of Covid, but once I get access back to the studio, I’ve got 2 EPs and 2 albums coming shortly after. And a lot of other projects/singles that I can’t tell you too much about just yet…”

Where do we find your music / music projects?

“You can find my music on all streaming platforms just search for Prophess I and I’m also releasing a bunch of snippets on my Instagram/Twitter @nick.dctmy so feel free to reach out.”

Any last words for the readers?

“First off I want to thank you for taking the time to read this it truly means a lot to me! And even though I can’t record right now, that isn’t going to change the massive plan I have in store so stay tuned…Peace!”
